Greg Wilson kicked off the 2019 season on Thursday in sunny Florida during the Ronald Laney Memorial King of the 360s.
East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa hosts the three-day event, which continues on Friday and Saturday. It marks the first time since 2015 that Wilson is competing in the spectacle.
“We’ve been excited to get a new season underway and we’re excited to be able to start it this weekend at the Ronald Laney Memorial King of the 360s,” he said. “It’s been a few years since we’ve been able to race at East Bay, which can be a tricky track. You have to stay on top of the track conditions throughout the night and be on top of your game every time you hit the track.”
Wilson and his Hercules Tires, DNC Hydraulics, Ohio Logistics and Gear Off Road backed team placed a career-best second during the 2006 edition of the event.
“We’ve had a few good runs throughout the years there,” he said. “We led a few laps in 2006 before ending second. Our goal is to have another competitive outing and be in contention to win on Saturday night.”
Wilson, who spent the three previous seasons as a full-time competitor with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series, said he will announce a schedule that fits his team the best in the near future.
“We’re looking forward to racing in some events we haven’t had the opportunity to compete in during the last few years,” he said. “That starts this weekend at an event we’ve always had fun running.”
