One of the nation’s most sought after sponsorship programs announced their team of drivers for the 2018 season on Friday. PFC Brakes, a leading manufacturer of high-performance brake calipers, rotors and pads, revealed the 10 drivers that will be on #TeamPFC for the upcoming racing season.
The list of drivers covers all four corners of the country and a Canadian province. Drivers from multiple disciplines of racing including dirt, asphalt, Late Models and Modifieds are also represented on #TeamPFC.
Without further ado, here is the full list of drivers selected to #TeamPFC:
Anthony Miller (SE Limited Late Model Series)
Carson Ferguson (Dirt Late Models)
Cole Butcher (Pro Stock Tour)
Derek Griffith (PASS)
Hunter Jack (ARCA/CRA Super Series)
Jack Dossey III (ARCA/CRA Super Series)
Kayli Baker (Super Late Models)
Mike Mahaney (Dirt Modifieds)
Morgan Ward (WISSOTA A Mods)
Zachary Tinkle (JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour)
The #TeamPFC selection process awarded drivers for the quantity and quality of their social media posts using the hashtag #SponsorMePFC18.
Griffith, a two-time PASS North winner in 2017, stepped up his social media game to earn brownie points for the #TeamPFC program. He’s thrilled that his efforts paid off and looks forward to representing PFC Brakes in a positive way in 2018.
“That’s huge,” Griffith said upon hearing he had been named to the program. “I guess social media hasn’t always been a strong suit of mine, but I’ve had some help over like the last year, year and a half by Lindsay (Ellison) and even you guys (Speed51.com) have done some stories that have gotten my name out there.
“I had Lindsay help me out with the media this year and she’s done an amazing job. The PFC stuff, the Sponsor Me PFC stuff, we’ve been putting up has just been killing it. Twitter has never been a strong suit of mine and we’re finally starting to get thirty or forty likes on stuff.”
Griffith has been an avid supporter of PFC Brakes since day one, using their brakes on all of his race cars while competing in Super Late Model events throughout the Northeast and beyond.
“I’ve been running PFC since day one so it’s pretty cool to get sponsored by them,” he said. “It’s going to help us with that whole media thing that I was talking about to. It’s really hard to get sponsorship and the way our team works I don’t think I’ll ever make it to the top-tier ranks unless I get help like this from people like PFC.”
2017 JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour champion Jack Dossey III found out that he had been selected while in the middle of practice for CRA SpeedFest at Crisp Motorsports Park in Cordele, Georgia. Dossey said he couldn’t be more thankful to be selected.
“PFC is so much better than the competition, so to have them come on board is exciting,” said Dossey. “It’s going to be a really good year.”
West coast racer Kayli Barker said that she started using PFC Brakes about halfway through last year and immediately noticed a difference.
“We were struggling with brake problems all year long,” explained Barker. “Once we put those on the car immediately turned around. (To be selected) is definitely a blessing and I can’t wait.”
