(December 7, 2016) Dresden, OH – Team DMR is proud to announce Devin Moran has been hired to be the new driver of the Tye Twarog Racing Dirt Late Model and will be chasing Rookie of the Year honors on the Craftsman World of Outlaws Dirt Late Model Series in 2017.
The team will utilize two brand new Rocket XR1 Chassis supplied by Mr. Twarog during the campaign. “I am really looking forward to working with Devin and Team DMR” said Twarog, “I feel he is one of the up and coming stars in the sport and proved he deserved this opportunity.”
Team DMR will stay intact with Donnie Moran and Wylie Moran serving as Crew Chiefs on the World of Outlaws Tour along with crew member Tristin Moran as his schedule will permit. The team will also remain in Dresden, Ohio at the DMR Race Shop.
“First of all I would like to thank Mr. Twarog for this opportunity” said Devin Moran shortly after the deal became public, “He came to us a few weeks ago and asked us if we would be interested in teaming up and hitting the road with the WoO which is the opportunity of a lifetime to race each week with the best in the country.”
The team will start the 2017 campaign in Georgia at Screven Motor Speedway, “We will have a little bit of a learning curve once again” said Crew Chief Wylie Moran, “Last year we were able to get the cars (BWRC) running up front after a lot of trial and error, but with a product like Rocket and Mark (Richards) and Steve (Baker) to lean on for advice could give us just the right combination we have been looking for.”
The team’s full sponsorship package will not be announced until after PRI, but it has been confirmed Tommy Pope Construction, the major sponsors from 2016, is staying on board into 2017.
