NORTH MIAMI, FL – As SMG Motorsports prepares to expand their reach from weekly Ltd. Late Model and touring Super Late Model racing into the wildly competitive APC United Late Model Series in 2018, there’s no question that frontman Sean Grosman has all the confidence in the world in his new-look program and his familiar driver as they set out to contend for their first touring championship.
“Our team isn’t big on half measures,” says SMG Motorsports owner and founder Grosman with a confidence. “I don’t do anything to finish second. This team’s mantra has always been to surround ourselves with the best people in order to go out and achieve the best results.”
“There’s no question that the [APC United Late Mode Series] has some of the best teams in Ontario right now,” continues the multi-time Sunset Speedway feature winner. “But, that’s why (driver) Ryan [Kimball] and I got together and assembled a program that we’re confident can hit the track and match stride with anyone at any speedway.”
Perhaps the biggest adjustment that the team is readying for is the debut of a brand new Fury Race Cars chassis – the first of its kind on the APC Series roster – assembled by one of the best manufacturing teams in the business, including former NASCAR Cup Series Crew Chief Tony Eury Jr. and longtime short track ace Jeff Fultz.
“The guys at Fury [Race Cars] have been absolutely incredible to deal with,” gushes Grosman. “Tony and Jeff have assembled the best craftsman in the industry and that shows in the quality of their work”
“Their team has gone above and beyond our expectations,” adds the North Miami, FL resident. “I’m counting down the hours until I can watch it on-track.”
Grosman and Kimball will once again tab accomplished young Crew Chief Graham Annis to complete their burgeoning Pro Late Model outfit – with the team’s first appearance scheduled for May 19th at Sunset Speedway.
“Graham and Ryan have always worked well together,” says Grosman. “I think their experience together, on top of Ryan’s extensive experience running longer races in both a Pro [Late Model] and a Super [Late Model] means that our team should be very comfortable this season. We’re ready to come out and win some races.”
