PEAK Stock Car Dream Challenge winner Patrick Staropoli will continue ‘living the dream’ as he parlays his great debut performance last season in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West into a five race deal for 2014.
Staropoli, driver of the No. 99 PEAK Toyota, showed at Spokane County Raceway that he was more than ready to pilot a BMR prepared Toyota Camry in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West. He recorded a top-five finish in his NASCAR debut. He then went on to BMR’s home track, All American Speedway, and recorded a sixth place finish. With two starts under his belt, the Plantation, FL resident is ready to put the No. 99 PEAK Toyota Camry into Victory Lane.
"When I made my entry video for the PEAK Challenge last March I never imagined it would lead to this,” said Staropoli. “Nobody has ever broken into the sport like this before and I'm so thankful that Bryan Emrich and everyone at PEAK Antifreeze & Motor Oil, Bill McAnally Racing, and Michael Waltrip Racing who believe in me and want to give me this chance to prove myself on some of the biggest stages in motorsports."
It was announced earlier that Staropoli would be part of Bill McAnally Racing’s 2014 roster which includes Brandon McReynolds, Michael Waltrip, and Eric Holmes.
"The schedule we have planned is every racer's dream. I'll have family, friends, and home track advantage at New Smyrna; Daytona and Bristol are icons of our sport; and I've always wanted to race at Irwindale and Iowa. Everyone at BMR is fired up to compete in the East. My mission is to put that No.99 PEAK Toyota up front, and open the right eyes and doors to get us to the second half of the season and keep this dream alive."
“We are proud to sponsor PEAK Stock Car Dream Challenge winner Patrick Staropoli as part of the BMR team in the No. 99 PEAK Toyota this year,” said Bryan Emrich, Senior Vice President of Marketing for PEAK. “Since winning the PEAK Stock Car Dream Challenge, Staropoli has continued to show immense dedication and determination to thrive in the sport. During his NASCAR K&N Pro Series West debut, he really proved that he has the true talent it takes to succeed. We are thrilled to continue supporting his racing career and look forward to more success on the track.”
