Columbia, SC – With the 2015 racing season fast approaching, teams are in the process of finalizing their plans and solidifying sponsorship deals to make the season opening races in Florida. Owner Darryl Woodruff and his Woodruff Motorsports team are no exception, but they are taking a slightly different approach.
“It has been a long off-season for the entire Woodruff Motorsports team, but we have accomplished a number of goals on our checklist as we continue to work towards 2015 and beyond,” said Darryl Woodruff.
In December 2014, Darryl and his team participated in the ARCA Racing Series test at Daytona International Speedway in hopes of gaining approval to compete in the series for 2015.
Woodruff Motorsports’ Driver Kyle Lockrow was behind the wheel of the #7 Ford, and at the conclusion of the two-day test was 18th on the speed charts, earning the team’s approval from ARCA series officials.
Once receiving the approval from ARCA, Darryl and his team continued to push onward and received approval from NASCAR to compete in their K&N Pro Series. The team will field the #88 car in NASCAR’s K&N Pro Series East division for a number of races.
The tentative six-race schedule between two series for Woodruff Motorsports includes events at Bristol in April (K&N), Pocono in June (ARCA), Loudon in July (K&N), Watkins Glen in August (K&N), Kentucky in September (ARCA), and Dover in October (K&N).
