FREMONT, Calif. — After a year off from full-time competition with the King of the West-NARC Sprint Car Series, Tarlton Motorsports will return to chase the championship in 2018, with Shane Golobic taking the reins of the No. 21x sprint car.
“I’m really excited and honored to run for the KWS/NARC Championship in 2018 with Tarlton Motorsports,” said Golobic. “I am thankful for the opportunity to be a part of Tom and Tommy Tarlton’s team, and I look forward to working alongside Paul Baines through the year. I really feel like we will be a tough team to beat. I am eager to get things started, and am very lucky to be a part of two of the best teams on the West Coast.”
Golobic joins Tarlton Motorsports after a 2017 season that saw him compete 81 times and score 10 wins, competing in winged and non-winged sprint cars, as well as in the USAC National Midget Series with Clauson-Marshall Racing.
In addition to the full, 15-race King of the West schedule, Golobic plans to complete his season by also driving the full USAC National Midget Series schedule with Clauson-Marshall Racing, as well as running select races with Keith Day Racing.
“I think Shane Golobic’s track record speaks for itself, and I am excited to work with him in 2018,” added Tarlton Motorpsorts crew chief Paul Baines. “Our goal, as it is with any driver we have, is to win races and win championships … and I think we should be pretty tough. Huge thanks to Tom and Tommy Tarlton for getting us back on the KWS trail again.”
