It’s another weekend of firsts for MB Motorsports. Driver Kevin Donahue will make his first start at Chicagoland Speedway, driving the #63 Mittler Brothers Machine & Tool, Chevy Silverado.  New partner Spanesi Americas makes its debut with the team, as well.

“I’m really looking forward to getting to Chicagoland,” says Donahue. “We had a solid run at Kansas in my first run on an intermediate track.  If we can pick up where we left off there, I think we will be alright.”

Kevin will have a busy Friday, as he will be joining Spanesi Americas at the third annual Cars, Careers, & Celebrities Expo, held by the Collision Repair Education Foundation and ASE.
“They’re expecting around five hundred students to attend the Expo,” says Donahue.  “They’ll have the opportunity to meet industry employers, view demonstrations, hold initial interviews, meet some race car drivers, and a whole lot more in the Chicagoland Speedway’s hospitality village area.“

“This is a big event for us,” says Spanesi Americas C.O.O. Timothy Morgan, “At Spanesi Americas, we have been involved with the Collision Repair Education Foundation since our inception, and myself for over 20 years, supporting collision repair, equipment and process to high schools and colleges. Spanesi Americas has donated a Three Torch Welding Machine that schools have a chance to win at the event. I’m glad that Kevin Donahue can join us there.”

“We’re really excited to be going back to Chicagoland,” says team owner Mike Mittler. “We have our new partner Spanesi Americas based just north of the track and they are participating in the Cars, Careers, & Celebrities Expo at the track.  This Kevin Donahue’s first chance to race there and after his solid run at Kansas, we’re very optimistic about his second mile and a half effort.”

The #63 Chevy Silverado also received support from Redback Boots, Mayhew Tool, Reikken, Timken, Gateway Kartplex, MARADYNE® High Performance Fans, Champion Brands, Excel Bottling / Ski Soda, MechanixWear and WIX Filters.
