January 29, 2019 - Exciting Slate Planned for Austin Horton in 2019
Austin Horton is busily preparing his equipment for an aggressive 2019 season. He has a wide variety of Dirt Late Model events planned for what will likely be his most ambitious schedule to date.

“I couldn’t be more excited about the upcoming season,” Horton said. “We are currently finalizing our schedule, but our main goal is to enter any touring series event that makes sense for us. If it’s a big race close to our area, then chances are really good we are going to enter it this year.”

Horton’s 2019 schedule will include events with the Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals, Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals, Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series, Ultimate Super Late Model Series, World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series, and the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.

“We’ve got a lot of good pieces in place, and we’ve learned a lot over the past few years as we got our feet wet in the Super Late Model ranks,” Horton commented. “With that said we are still looking to add marketing partners on all levels to our team, so that we can branch out more. Any new sponsorship will only aid in the progress and growth of our team.”

The team’s 2019 schedule will be posted in the coming weeks here on the team’s website. Anyone, who is interested in becoming a Marketing Partner with the team, is encouraged to Contact Us today!
