Anderson & Koons Team Up For MLRA

WHEATLAND, Mo. – Three-time Lucas Oil Midwest Latemodel Racing Ass’n champion John Anderson has teamed with fellow Omaha, Neb., racer Bill Koons for the 2014 season and beyond.

The two have long been friends, and the timing was right for both to put a solid program in place. BK Motorsports will start the year in two new Rocket Chassis Race Cars and Custom Race Engines will provide the power.

“We’re going to put our best foot forward and see how it goes,” said Anderson. “It’s really hard for me to just go run Lucas Oil MLRA and not shoot for a title, because it’s what we’ve done so much in the past.”

Anderson was certainly glad the call came from Koons.

“I was at kind of a crossroads in my career and I really wanted to race more,” Anderson said. “When he decided he wanted to travel, this really turned into a great opportunity. I started in Rocket’s with Shop Quik Racing, and they really seem to be rolling good right now. I’m glad to get the chance to drive one again.”

Koons was ready for a change too. Having raced around Nebraska the last couple of seasons, he missed the competition on the Lucas Oil MLRA tour.

“I got away from racing at the level we were because of the expense, but I really liked the different tracks and competitors,” Koons said. “It seemed like I was sharper behind the wheel when I was running with MLRA.”
