Jeff Heotzler Racing (JHR) is extremely excited to announce a partnership with Vinny Salerno and Four Star Motorsports that will allow “The Jeffer” to make a serious bid for his 5th Orange County Fair Speedway Modified championship this season.
Four Star Motorsports, known for its highly professional and successful operations that in the past featured such legends as Brett Hearn and Tim McCreadie, will return to the sport after a brief hiatus and provide key support and resources to Jeff Heotzler Racing. A fresh Morrison Performance big block engine will bolted in between the frame rails and Keizer Wheels will be utilized on all four corners of the team’s TEO Pro Car.
Salerno is eager to begin this new venture.
“I didn’t have any plans to race again, but this fits my schedule and I like what Jeff and his team are doing. I’m looking forward to it.”
“The Jeffer” will be strapping into his innovative TEO Pro Car that he spent the entire 2016 season engineering, testing and tweaking. There is nothing conventional about the coil-over suspension that features a mash-up of technologies predominantly found in dirt late model and IMCA ranks.
“I think we are very close on hitting on something special,” said an optimistic Heotzler. “Nowadays, anybody can go fast if they have the money to buy the best. We’re out to prove that with a little outside the box thinking and courage to stray away from the “norm”, you can go even faster.”
Signing on as the team’s primary sponsor is Extreme Energy Solutions, a research and development firm, a manufacturer, distributor of emissions reduction technology, and other consumer green tech products. “The Jeffer” will headline the Extreme Energy quartet of drivers that also include Tommy Vigh Jr., Connor Otten and Roddy Watts.
“We are very grateful that Samuel Burlum (CEO of Extreme Energy Solutions) stepped up and made this happen. We look forward to flying the Extreme Energy colors,” stated Heotzler.
First up for the newly formed team is the Short Track Super Series opener at OCFS on April 8th. The regular points season and race for the championship then kicks off on Saturday April 22nd.
