The Mosquito Patch and Motorhead Racing Company Ready for ARCA Return at Talladega Superspeedway

Sunday April 15, 2012


BATON ROUGE, La. (April 12, 2012) – After a successful ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards debut in February’s series-opener at Daytona International Speedway, Motorhead Racing Company along with The Mosquito Patch colors is set to return to ARCA racing action in the second superspeedway event of the season at Talladega Superspeedway in May. They will jump start their race weekend with drivers Aleks Gregory and John Ferrier next week during the open test on Talladega’s high-banks April 17th and 18th.

After making an impressive start in their pressure-packed debut at Daytona International Speedway in February, The Motorhead Racing Company team, sponsor The Mosquito Patch and Rookie Driver Aleks Gregory look to carry the momentum to Talladega Superspeedway under the watchful eye of veteran Crew Chief Mark Gibson. They will do that with two cars at the 2.66-mile track – Gregory, who will be making his second-career ARCA start, in the No. 78 and Veteran Jon Ferrier in the No. 76, both adorned in The Mosquito Patch’s camouflage colors.

“I really appreciate The Mosquito Patch for all of their support and providing me with the opportunity to get back behind the wheel at Talladega,” said Ferrier. “I love superspeedway racing and look forward to getting our No. 76 car tuned and ready to go for the race in May. I am looking forward to working with both Aleks and Mark Gibson again and getting both of our cars ready for a strong run in May.”

Along with their Superspeedway return in May, Motorhead Racing Company and their flagship driver, 23-year-old Gregory, will be making a minimum of nine additional ARCA Racing Series starts throughout the remainder of the season. With the support of The Mosquito Patch, Gregory will be earning his rookie stripes at tracks all across the country ranging from New Jersey’s road course, to Pocono’s “tricky triangle” to Toledo’s short track.

“I am really excited for this opportunity and can’t thank all the owners at The Mosquito Patch enough for this opportunity,” said Gregory. The Mosquito Patch is such a great product, and to have their support is really exciting; this is something I have wanted to do for a long time. I can’t wait to get to Talladega for the test next week. We had a really strong run going at Daytona and I look forward to capitalizing on that. We learned so much in Daytona. Mark Gibson and the team have really been working hard on our cars and I know the extra track time next week will help bring both of our Mosquito Patch cars to the front of the pack in May.”
