Landon Simon will pilot the No. 57M Bill Ecker-owned midget for the 30th annual running of the Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire and held at the River Spirit Expo Center in Tulsa, Okla.
In addition to Landon Simon Racing’s primary sponsor Mt Baker Vapor, the bright red car will feature a new sponsor for the 2016 event. Shane Roach Concrete and Construction will partner with Mt Baker Vapor to back the No. 57M.
“I’m very excited to kick-off the 2016 season in Tulsa,” said Simon. “Bill Ecker and RAB Racing have given me a great opportunity in a top-notch midget and I couldn’t be more excited to get the week started.”
The current Indianapolis-based driver will represent his home state of Ohio for the fifth season to date; his second with Mt Baker Vapor on board.
“Shane Roach Concrete & Construction is proud to sponsor Landon Simon for the 2016 Chili Bowl,” said Shane Roach, owner and CEO of the Kansas City-based company. “My wife, Angi and I met Landon, Sarah and the family at last years’ Chili Bowl. Immediately we were very impressed with his positive attitude, dedication to the sport, sportsmanship, and inspired by his story.”
“Landon has worked very hard on and off the track to achieve his dreams. We’re honored to not only sponsor Landon, but to call him a friend. We are looking forward to Chili Bowl and would like to wish Landon, his crew, Sarah, family, friends, and all the sponsors the best of luck as they attempt to capture the Golden Driller in 2016.”
