|Wheatley Teaming Up With Willie Kahne for Trophy Cup
Inside Line Promotions - LAKE STEVENS, Wash. (Oct. 2, 2017) - Austen Wheatley is excited to announce that he will drive for Willie Kahne during the 24th annual Trophy Cup later this month.
The marquee event, which is hosted by Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif., Oct. 19-21, will mark the first time the duo has teamed up.
"I think it's cool because he's not just going to put anyone in it," Wheatley said. "He has some faith in me. I think we'll make a good pair and will have some good speed."
Wheatley has only competed at the Trophy Cup once during his career. However, he has raced at the unique track during World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series events dating back to 2012.
"I ran eighth there in 2012 with the Outlaws," he said. "It's definitely a tough track and you can get yourself in trouble really quickly. There's a certain amount of luck involved when you run the Trophy Cup. I know that Willie will provide a great car so we need to have luck on our side and I need to do a good job behind the wheel."
Wheatley said Trophy Cup will be his final event of the season to cap a banner year. He has posted a career-best three feature victories along with four top fives and 11 top 10s.
