CARMEL, IN – Joe Murello a prominent Indiana businessman announced today that he will field a USAC P1 Insurance Midget for up and coming race car driver Austin Langenstein at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on September 5th and 6th.
The event coined the Driven2SaveLives BC39 is a race that will honor the late Bryan Clauson and will be held on the hallowed grounds at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on a new quarter-mile clay oval inside Turn 3. The BC39 will be held in conjunction with the NASCAR “Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard during the week of that event.
Mr. Murello was a long time friend and supporter of Bryan Clauson having a association with Jonathan Byrd and the Byrd Restaurant and Hospitality Group in Bryan,s 2015 and 2016 Indianapolis 500 efforts.
“When they announced this event at Indy in honor of Bryan , I wanted to be a part of this historical event in some small way, said Joe. I thought the best way to honor Bryan was to have a young , talented and dedicated race car driver who just needed a chance to shine on the “BIG Stage” against the worlds best established race car drivers. This is why I chose Austin Langenstein.
“Austin caught our eye at last years 2018 Chili Bowl in Tulsa, Okla. Here was a driver who never stepped foot in a midget style race car before that event and was a true rookie who showed tremendous raw talented each and every time he was on the race track during that week. Here was a kid who never drove that style of race car and during the days that Austin was not on the race track he worked his day job for HMS Motorsport at the trade show portion at the Chili Bowl. That says a lot for this young man stated Mr. Murello. We also took a few moments in Tulsa to chat with Austin and we were extremely impressed how nice of a young man that Austin really is,” Joe added.
When we contacted Austin, he was still in disbelief! What an honor to be chosen by Mr. Murello to be given an opportunity to drive for him and to have the chance to give tribute to the great Bryan Clauson. Bryan is such the definition of what a true race car driver is! I am going to give it my all for Joe to make him proud at Indy and to honor Bryan in this opportunity that he has given me! I can not thank him enough, Austin stated.
Austin Langenstein will drive for the same team that gave him such a great car in Tulsa last year. Tucker /Boat is a race team rich in history and Corey Tucker and Chad and Billy Boat are great people to work with.
Joe Murello stated to Austin, not to change up what worked for him in the past and to secure a seat in one of the Tucker/Boat race cars for this $15,000 to win lucrative event at Indy!
Giuseppe’s Italian Market in Noblesville, Indiana will be the exclusive marketing partner on Austin,s race car.
Giuseppe’s Italian Market features 100% Italian food and is primarily focused on carry out service!
“Austin and Joe both agree, heck if nothing else the race team will at least eat “good” !
Austin,s dad Charlie Langenstein did say to both gentleman that he will supply the “MILK” to drink! You can never race at Indy without having some ice cold milk ready to drink after the race ! We may as well keep up with the tradition,” Charlie mentioned.
