HOLLY, Mich. — Kody Swanson has joined Wilshe Motorsports and will compete in a BioBased.US sprint car in Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Series competition in 2012. Swanson, an accomplished USAC open-wheel racer, will team with popular series veteran Jason Blonde in XSS action.
Over the past two seasons Swanson has established himself as a bona fide star in open wheel racing, winning races at several of the sport’s most heralded venues. He joins a solid outfit with Wilshe Motorsports, and Swanson’s presence will further strengthen the driving roster for a season that is shaping up to be intensely competitive.
“I’m really excited,” said Swanson, a 23-year-old native of Kingsburg, Calif. “This is the first opportunity I’ve had to run some of the Xtreme Sprint Series events, but I’ve watched several races on television and was impressed with how professional and how competitive they’ve been. The series is unlike anything else in short track racing right now, they’re moving forward and growing, making a name for themselves, and I’m excited to be a part of that.”
“We’re excited to have Kody join our team for 2012,” said Don Wilshe, BioBased.US founder who with wife Suellen fields Wilshe Motorsports. “Kody has an impressive background, and a winning record as an open-wheel driver. It will be a good addition to the team and we look forward to racing with Kody and Jason this season.”
