ELVERTA, CA – Following a white-hot 2018 season that saw his familiar No. 51 tally four wins en route to a first career North State Modified Series title, Kris Price has confirmed he will return to the tour in 2019 with hopes of securing a second consecutive championship.
“The season we put together in 2018 was just about everything we could have asked for and more,” details the Price RaceCars fabricator. “It was the culmination of a lot of hard work and more hours than I could ever really explain. It was a dream season”
The head-turning campaign helped Price to establish himself as one of the top Open Wheel Modified competitors on the West Coast – an honour he hopes to further solidify in 2019.
“The goal has always been to show the rest of the industry that we can outrun anyone on our best day,” says Price. “We led 280 of a total 500-laps last year and all that did is made us want to go home, work harder and be even better this season”
“We’re building a brand new car for this season’s tour schedule and I can’t wait to see just what it’s capable of,” continues the Elverta, CA native. “We took all the lessons we picked up in 2018 – the good and the bad – and we used the data to build something that I feel is even better than anything we brought to the track last year”
And, while the success levels that he achieved throughout his first full season with the North State Modified Series are undeniable, it doesn’t appear as though Price will be ready to rest on his laurels any time soon.
“The last thing I wanted to do this off-season was just sit around and pat ourselves on the back for what we accomplished,” insists the well-spoken standout. “Complacency will always stand in the way of you getting better – no matter who you are or what you’ve accomplished”
“We’ve been putting in work and grinding through hours in the shop all Winter to make sure we can come back this season and lead more laps, win more races and be two-time champions. That’s where we’re setting the bar for ourselves. Anything less is going to be a disappointment.”
