Danny Holtgraver Pleased To Announce Big Plans For 2013
Pittsburgh, PA (11/17/12) – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native and former Lernerville Speedway track champion, Danny Holtgraver, is pleased to announce that he will be teaming up with Bryan Grove and Rob Hunter for the 2013 racing season. Holtgraver will be the new full-time pilot of the familiar Canton Erectors/Alternative Power Sources/DKW Transport/Berlin Natural Bakery no. 45 ‘410’ sprint car; powered by J&J Chassis, Kistler Engines, VRP Shocks, Winters Rear Ends, ButlerBuilt, and Simpson racing products. Brian Kemenah, who jumped on board with Danny Holtgraver Motorsports during the 2012 racing season, will also make the switch to the ’45’ program in 2013 and become the crew chief of the all-new B&R Racing operation.
“I am really excited for this opportunity to race the ’45’ car full-time.” said Holtgraver, “Bryan and Rob worked extremely hard to get this deal together for me for the upcoming season…Brian Kemenah is going to be the team’s crew chief and team manager…everybody played a huge part in getting this team up and running…I can’t wait until February!”
The 2013 season will end a 17 year-long relationship between Danny Holtgraver and his father, Dan, as a driver/owner combination; most recongnized for their recent years in ‘410’ sprint car competition. Holtgraver raced for his father for many seasons in the ‘D4’ sprinter; earning 24 sprint car wins together, as well as a Lernerville Speedway track championship.
“I really can not thank my father enough” explained Holtgraver, “My dad worked really hard to get me where I am today…him and I raced for almost 20 years…from go-karts to sprint cars…he’s always been there for me and backed me from the start…he is still playing a big part in this new team by supporting our progress…I just can’t thank him enough!”
Although the B&R Racing ’45’ operation is set to begin competition as early as February, no detailed schedule has been determined or released. Information regarding Danny Holtgraver’s 2013 racing schedule will be released in the near future- right here at www.fullyinjected.com.
“It’s going to be a great season” said Holtgraver about 2013, “This team is working so hard already…I can’t wait until the season starts!”
