Keith Barbara to Open Season at Mercer Raceway Park; Announces Plans to Follow NDRL Northeast Series!
South Park, PA (March 19, 2014) Keith Barbara and the Forbes Field Motorsports team will kick-off their 2014 season on Saturday, March 29 at Mercer (PA) Raceway Park as the NDRL Northeast Late Model Series will sanction the $3,000 to-win ‘Chiller Thriller’, an event he won in 2012.
In addition to opening the season with the NDRL Northeast Late Model Series, Keith will follow the entire NDRL Northeast tour in 2014. ‘We’ve always been pretty good at Mercer Raceway Park, we’ve had some success there in the past,’ Barbara said from his shop. ‘We’ve also wanted to get back on the road a little bit the last few years. With our program being where it is, and the travel package that the NDRL Northeast series is providing, we felt that this year is the right time to get back to points racing.’ Keith continued, ‘The schedule has the right amount of events and it pays pretty well. The NDRL Northeast is really exactly what we were looking for. We want to race around 30 to 35 events throughout the season, so most of our schedule will be the NDRL Northeast schedule.’
Barbara and the Forbes Field Motorsports team finished their 2013 campaign on a strong note and hope that momentum sticks with them through the 2014 season. ‘We had some strong runs at the end of last season that I think we can build on going in to this year. We have a brand new MBH Race Car and we’re ready to start the season. We’re very excited to get back on the road a bit and get to some tracks we haven’t been to in a long while. We’re ready to go; just hope the weather cooperates so we can get the season start,’ Keith bottom-lined.
As mentioned, Keith will be in action on March 29 at Mercer Raceway Park for the $3,000 to-win ‘Chiller Thriller’ sanctioned by the NDRL Northeast Late Model Series. From there the team will visit Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway for the $10,000 to-win ‘PennNational’ co-sanctioned by the NDRL Kings of Dirt Series and the NDRL Northeast Series.
