2011 MSPA DRIVER OF THE YEAR SIGNS KAMPS PROPANE FOR LATE MODEL CAMPAIGN

 

PINE GROVE, CALIFORNIA (March 16, 2012) – Two-time defending All American Speedway Late Model champion Matt Scott, recently named 2011 Norcal Motorsports Press Association Driver of the Year, has signed a title sponsorship with Kamps Propane to race Late Models at both All American Speedway and Stockton 99 Speedway in 2012.

 

The 19-time NASCAR Late Model winner will embark on a busy 2012 schedule that will include full-time efforts at both speedways.  The 2012 season will begin on March 31st with a 75 lap contest at All American Speedway.

 

In addition to Kamps Propane sponsorship, Scott will also carry support from Axcel Sports, CatchYourEye.com Motorsports Graphics, Pardee Lake Recreation, and TAS Construction on the #35 Chevrolet.  Kamps Propane joined Matt Scott Racing as a major associate sponsor during the 2011 season and also was a major sponsor of Scott's debut in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West last October.  That debut yielded a tenth place finish and Scott is hopeful that another successful Late Model season can translate to more opportunities in the K&N series.

 

"I am very excited to have Kamps Propane sponsoring the Late Model again this year," Scott said.  "All the momentum is behind us for a great season to hopefully open more doors in the West Series."

 

On March 7, Scott was honored for his 2011 accomplishments by the Motorsports Press Association and was named Closed Wheel / Oval Track Drive of the Year.  Scott joined road racer Joey Hand, open-wheel star Kyle Larson, Indycar driver J.R. Hildebrand, and World of Outlaws championship car owner Chris Luck as the night's honorees.  The banquet was held at the spectacular Blackhawk Museum in Danville, Calif.

 

Scott's 2011 season included seven poles, six wins, and 14 top-fives in 17 starts.  Scott had a stretch of the season where he qualified in the top-three in 10 consecutive events.  His career NASCAR stats include 19 wins, 14 poles, and 66 top-tens in 73 starts.

 

Matt Scott Racing thanks Kamps Propane for their support and would welcome additional interested sponsors to contact Steven Blakesley of Blakesley Sports Media at (916) 509-7049.
