INDIANAPOLIS — Thomas Meseraull will be heading west when the USAC AMSOIL National and CRA Sprint Cars stop at Arizona Speedway and Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway during the month of November.
The San Jose, California native has been named as the driver of the Reinbold/Underwood Motorsports No. 19 for the Western World Championships at Arizona on Nov. 3-4 and the Budweiser Oval Nationals presented by All Coast Construction at Perris, Nov. 9-11.
Meseraull hasn’t had any prior experience for the Reinbold/Underwood team, but facts like that haven’t deterred his success of late, evidenced by what he’s accomplished this season.
The USAC veteran has earned six series wins since 2015, including a pair this season for two different teams.
In June, Meseraull was victorious in his second start for the Heffner Racing team during the Eastern Storm trip to Pennsylvania’s Lincoln Speedway. One month later, in his USAC debut for Chase Briscoe Racing, Meseraull captured the victory in the Indiana Sprint Week opener at Kokomo Speedway.
In fact, Meseraull has driven five different teams to top-five finishes with USAC this season alone.
The No. 19 was originally entered for Brady Short, however Short had to bow out due to other commitments.
Meseraull will, however, have Hunter Schuerenberg as a teammate in a second Reinbold/Underwood car. The West Coast-based team has competed on the national trail this season, including leading eight laps and recording back-to-back top-five finishes with Schuerenberg in the Sprint Car Smackdown at Kokomo in August.
Though Meseraull has not yet won at Arizona or Perris in USAC National Sprint Car competition, he has a USAC Western States Midget victory at Perris to his credit back in 2001.
Meseraull’s best Western World finish to-date was a third on opening night last year, while his top Oval Nationals result is sixth-place, scored in both 2012 and 2015.
