Keeton Hanks Signs With Allen-Hock Motorsports For 2007 ASA Late Model Challenge Series
(Cincinnati, OH) Keeton Hanks, who started his racing career at the ripe age of five years old, has signed with Allen-Hock Motorsports for a full slate of ASA Late Model Challenge Series races in 2007 at the young age of 17 years old! Hanks has collected over 60 Legends Car feature wins and was the 2004 National Pro Asphalt Champion. Keeton was recently crowned Rookie of the Year in the Nascar Dodge Weekly Series at the historic Music City Motorplex and finished fourth in the points standings. With two seasons of racing Late Models under his belt, Hanks has gained valuable knowlege and experience that will help him to continue making Allen-Hock Motorsports the successful team it has been. Keeton has proved he can be a threat in competitive fields as he finished out his 2006 season in his first ever All American 400 with a top five!
Hanks' 2007 season will consist of 12 races and is going to be a year he will gain experience on larger race tracks as he will be racing on tracks such as Bristol Motor Speedway, The Milwuakee Mile, Iowa Speedway, and even crossing the border into Canada to race! The Allen-Hock Motorsports prepared Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS will begin being driven by Hanks at San Antonio, TX in the first ASA Late Model Challenge Series race of the year.
"These guys at Allen-Hock Motorsports are great guys and I'm looking forward to working with them week in and week out. We all have one thing on our minds for sure, and that is to give the team and myself our first ASA Late Model Series win together. I will focus on keeping these cars up front every week and the guys are going to work hard in the pits, so we also have a championship in the back of our minds," happily claimed Hanks about his new team.
Allen-Hock Motorsports, owned by Glenn Allen, the 1996 Busch Series Rookie of the Year, and Ed Hock, a successful business man in Michigan, is based out of Cincinnati, OH. Team owners Allen and Hock make a great combination as they have finished in the top five in points with their race teams two years in a row. The team was a multi car team in 2006 as they had both cars finish in the top ten in points.
"Keeton is a great person and driver. We at Allen-Hock Motorsports hope that he will lead us to our first ASA Late Model Series Championship in 2007," stated team owner, Hock, on his new driver.
"We're excited about having Keeton Hanks as Allen-Hock Motorsports' 2007 driver. We feel he is one of the better short track racers across the country. We have finished in the top five with our race teams already and feel like Keeton can get us our first championship. Keeton comes from a great family and brings the total package to the table," stated Allen, who will be serving as the team's crew chief.
