M&S Racing Names Eliason New Driver
CHICO, Calif. – M&S Racing has named Cory Eliason the new driver of the No. 27 sprint car beginning this weekend at California’s Silver Dollar Speedway.
Eliason replaces Sean Becker in the car.
“First of all we want to wish Sean Becker the best of luck as he goes after the King of the West and Civil War Championships,” team owner Mike Dodds said. “He did a great job for us, and we wish him well.”
In various starts over the last few seasons in 410 sprint-car competition over the last few seasons, Eliason has showed exceptional speed and has flirted with victory with the King of the West 410 Sprint Car Series and in local competition. Recently he charged from 17th to seventh while racing in World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series.
“We are thrilled to have a young, up and coming driver like Cory on board with us,” Dodds said. “We have raced against him a few times, and he has done a great job, and we are looking forward to having him drive for us.”
Kicking off this Friday night at the Silver Dollar Speedway in weekly competition, the team will also be in action on Saturday night with the King of the West 410 Sprint Car Series for the Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial.
Moving forward from this weekend, the team plans on hitting various 410 and 360 sprint-car events around the region with Eliason.
“I am so excited and thankful for this opportunity to work with this team,” Eliason said. “They have had a lot of success over the past couple of seasons, and hopefully we can continue that success. This is such an honor, and I am very excited to get started.”
