It’s not often a driver from the Deep South ventures to the Northeast to race. But that’s exactly what’s going to happen in 2021, as Brooke Storer has been tapped by Bobby Webber Racing to pilot the No. 19s ACT Late Model in the Northeast Classic at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
The team announced last week that Storer, a longtime Wheel Man Series Sportsman standout racer from Central Florida, will pack her bags and head North for at least one race of their campaign.
“I’m really excited to have Brooke join us in driving one of my Vynorius Piledriving/ Hedges Excavation No.19’s,” said team owner Bobby Webber Jr. “Hopefully we will all get to know each other during Speedweeks where our team driver Bryan Kruczek and Brooke will both be running Jason Boyd prepared Sportsman. I’m looking forward to potentially pairing up with Brooke to run more races here in the Northeast next summer and beyond.”
Storer explained that the deal came together quickly, as Webber Racing team officials had made up their mind to put her in the car after watching footage of some of her previous Wheel Man Series starts on Speed51.TV.
“It’s almost unheard of today to see racers given a ride based off of perceived skill,” Storer said. “For them to message me on Facebook and offer me the ride was nothing short of an honor. I really look forward to getting behind the wheel of the No.19 and using the opportunity to show the fans what I can do in a quality piece on the big stage.”
Coming off of three wins in the 2020 Brandon Ford Wheel Man Series season, Storer hopes to make racing Late Models a regular part of her 2021 campaign while still racing at home in her family-owned sportsman.
“I’ve raced everything from Sportsman to Super Late Models, Late Model Stocks to Outlaw Stocks. Now I get the opportunity to race an ACT Late Model,” Storer continued. “That’s pretty cool. I hope that my experiences translate into a quick understanding of the ACT car.”
