Brian Keselowski – Making the switch from Dodge to Chevrolet!

K-Automotive Motorsports is happy to announce that Brian Keselowski will be back on the track in the No.92 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Chevrolet, at Michigan International Speedway, on Sunday, June 19, 2011.

The word “Dodge” is synonymous with the name “Keselowski”. For what seems like forever, the two went hand in hand. Keselowski said in a recent statement: “Making the decision to leave Dodge and go with another manufacturer was a hard decision to make but as an owner I need to think of what is best for the team & the company and it’s what I need to do to try and make races to keep racing and pay the bills, so that is why I’ve made the switch. While I am not happy about parting ways with Dodge, I am looking forward to our new venture with Chevy. Maybe in the future I’ll be able to work with Dodge again but for right now, Chevy is the way we’ve chosen to go & I’m hopeful this will benefit all involved”.

K-Automotive Motorsports is also happy to announce the return of Melling Engine Parts as a proud sponsor for Keselowski’s No.92 Chevrolet at Michigan International Speedway. The Melling’s family have a long history in NASCAR starting when owner, Harry Melling of Melling Tool, sponsored Benny Parsons in 1979. The team began in 1982 with driver Bill Elliott by sponsoring Elloitt’s #9 Ford that season. Throughout the years the Melling’s have endured the ups and downs of racing with various drivers and sponsors and ultimately closed it’s doors on their No.92 race team during the 2003 season and sold their shop to Arnold Motorsports.

Mark Melling CEO of Melling Engine Parts has agreed to a one race sponsorship of the K-Automovtive Chevrolet at MIS. “ I am pleased to help out another racing family with Michigan Roots. We once had the Melling name on a K-Automotive Truck in Daytona and this opportunity to help out again was to good to pass up.” Keselowski states “I am really excited about bringing the Melling name back into racing and honored to do it in the No.92 as they used to. Hopefully this is a good sign in the right direction and I’m hopeful to have them on board with us more in the future.”

K- Automotive Motorsports is actively seeking additional sponsors and will work with any company or individual. Packages will include some or all of the following: decal of their company’s name or any name they would like to be placed on various parts of the race car, complimentary all access passes for the entire race weekend of their choice and experience an ultimate garage tour for a chance to meet their favorite NASCAR personalities and other hospitality amenities.
