Kruger to get first-hand experience at NASCAR Grand National Race


Full Throttle Productions is bringing NASCAR’S Grand National Division to Texas this weekend, as the series will run the AllState Texas Thunder 200 Saturday night at Thunder Hill Raceway (Kyle).


Fans from all over the country will be out in full force at Thunder Hill’s 3/8th-mile asphalt oval to witness the exciting action of the Grand National Division race.


Others will be there, too – not only for the Race Day events on Saturday but for the Sponsor Appreciation event the night before the race.


One of those is 13-year-old Jake Kruger, who’s going to get the chance to meet with event sponsors – and Grand National Division Racers – at the Sponsor Appreciation Night BBQ on Friday night.


“Jake is very excited about the great opportunity he’s been given being able to attend the Sponsor Appreciation Night BBQ,” Deb Kruger, Jake’s mother, stated. “Jake really looks forward to meeting some of the (Grand National) series drivers and hearing their stories about driving at the (Grand National Division) level.”


Deb Kruger added, “Jake’s being lucky enough to receive tickets to the Allstate Texas Thunder 200 Saturday night at Thunder Hill Raceway, so he’ll be able to see the drivers he meets on Friday drive the track on Saturday.”


“I’d like to be able to someday race at this level,” declared Jake Kruger, who sits second in the 2006 Lonestar Legacys series points standings going into the series’ Oct. 28 at Thunder Hill Raceway. “To meet some of these drivers would be great for me. I look forward to learning a lot about driving a race car from there.”


Bill Kruger, the Kruger Motorsports co-owner who’s a former driver himself, also looks forward to having his son experience racing “at a high level.”


“Jake’s been fortunate enough to be surrounded with good people within the sport of racing is one reason he has had a successful racing career at this point in his life,” Bill Kruger remarked. “Jake has been blessed with having a supportive network of family and friends.”


The elder Kruger said, “Kruger Motorsports would like to thank Cool Karts of Texas (John Borek), Tavo C.T. Hellmund and John Martin with Austin VeeDub Body and Paint for their continued support throughout this racing season. With their help, Jake has been able to reach his goals for the 2006 season.”
