“We are excited to continue our partnership with Ryan Wilson Motorsports and the Wilson Family,” stated Mike Whitehead, President of Randolph Bank. “This will be our third year with Ryan (Wilson) and Randolph Bank could not be more pleased with the visibility and success of the partnership. We look forward to an exciting and successful 2011 season.”
“It’s a great feeling to have Randolph Bank back on board for the year,” said 19-year old Ryan Wilson. “They have been a great marketing partner for our team over the past two seasons and we definitely plan to kick it up a notch in 2011 on and off the track.”
It was also announced on Thursday night that Ryan Wilson will continue his climb up the racing ladder and has signed a letter of intent with the potent Win-Tron Racing based in Lakeville, Minnesota to compete in five ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards schedule. Wilson is scheduled to take the wheel of the No. 32 Southern Pharmacy Services Toyota Camry beginning at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway on June 11, 2011.
“We welcome Ryan Wilson to our Win-Tron Racing family,” said Win-Tron Racing co-owner Nate Thiesse. “When we met Ryan and his family earlier this year, we could see the passion and drive in Ryan’s eyes and we knew if he did come to our stable, the combination of Ryan and our team has the potential to leave our competition in the dust. We’re looking forward to the five races and building towards an even stronger schedule in 2012.”
“We looked at a number of ARCA teams and I’m thankful to each and everyone of them for taking time out of their busy schedule to meet with me,” added Wilson. “We elected to go with Win-Tron Racing as we feel their platform and results speak for themselves. We’re looking to make a statement in the five races and build on something for next year too.”
Additionally, RWM announced that Southern Pharmacy Services has joined the team for their late model and ARCA Racing Series programs in 2011. The SPS logo will be displayed on the television panel on the No. 12 Randolph Bank Toyota Camry while moving to the hood for the first ARCA Racing Series event at the 2.5-mile Pocono (Pa.) Raceway.
Wilson kicks off his 2011 late model season at Caraway (N.C.) Speedway on Sunday, March 13th.
“We’re gunning for the championship this year at Caraway,” sounded Wilson. “We’ve stepped up our program all the way around and I know that with the changes we made, we can go out on a weekly basis and have a shot at winning.”
