Concord, NC — Bobby Gill, the four time USAR Hooters Pro Cup Champion and veteran NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) Driver and Truck Chief, will pilot the No. 5 Van Knill Motorsports, in conjunction with Wauters Motorsports, Toyota Camry in the 13th Annual North-South Shootout Pro All Star Series (PASS) race Saturday, November 7, 2015 at Concord Speedway.
Gill is a former NCWTS driver that found much success in NASCAR’s All-Pro Series and in the USAR developmental program; where he won three consecutive USAR Pro Cup Championships form 1999-2001 and added his fourth championship in 2007.
Gill has several wins under his belt at Concord Speedway in multiple Big 10 and USAR races on the half-mile North Carolina short track including in Wauters Motorsports equipment. Saturday’s PASS Shootout will be Gill’s first Super Late Model start in five years.
“I’m looking forward to being back behind the wheel of a super late model,” Bobby Gill said. “I’ve been pretty busy the last few years working with Richie Wauters on his trucks and on his short track program that I haven’t had a lot of time to race. We have an off weekend and Van (Knill) asked me if I wanted to drive it at Concord and I said yes, of course. Concord (Speedway) is really unique – it is banked, has doglegs and is a tough little tri-oval where tire management will be important. It should be a lot of fun and I hope to have a good run for Van and the guys.”
The 13th Annual John Blewett III Memorial North-South Shootout in memory of Charles Kepley PASS race at Concord Speedway is slated to begin on Saturday, November 7, 2015 at 2:00pm. Speed51.com will have live Trackside Now coverage and live pay-per-view coverage on Friday and Saturday.
