As the 2022 Tezo’s All Star Circuit of Champions season wraps up, the Lane Racing, Blake’s Hard Cider No. 4 Car will team up with Jay Kiser Racing for the Jim and Joanne Ford Classic weekend at Fremont Speedway.
Jay Kiser Racing pilot Chris Andrews will take the reins of the Lane Racing car, while Jay Kiser will handle the crew chief position for the weekend. Team owner Brett Lane feels that teaming up with Kiser and Andrews will give them a great opportunity to end the All Star season on the front stretch.
Lane Racing is extremely thankful for Jay and Chris, as they have made sacrifices to help close the All-Star season this weekend. Lane Racing is currently fourth in All Star owners points, with two wins on the year and they feel like Jay and Chris will have the No. 4 car up front.
“I’m pretty excited to be honest,” said Chris Andrews. “The No. 4 has become an iconic ride in today’s sprint car world… to be chosen to drive this weekend is an honor.”
Jay Kiser added: “We are all very confident that we will be very competitive at Fremont Speedway. We have had speed there all year and think we can continue the success and progress we have made this year.”
While Kiser and Andrews have two runner-up finishes at Fremont Speedway this year, but everyone involved this weekend has the same goal in mind: win, or finish in the top five.
“Racing against the All Stars is challenging as heck, as it is, and we are ready for the challenge and are confident we can succeed with Lane Racing and their great equipment,” said crew chief Jay Kiser. “They run Kistler Engines so I am confident they will run great! I’m bringing along our normal Berryman Racing Shocks package and some other small stuff to try and keep Chris comfortable. I love challenges, so I’m ready!” concluded Kiser.
“To get on the front stretch at the JFC [Jim and Joanne Ford Classic] would mean the world. This is our Kings Royal. This is ‘the’ prestigious Fremont event,” said Andrews.
Lane Racing again can’t thank Jay Kiser Racing and Chris Andrews enough for stepping up to help the Lane Racing team wrap up their All Star Season strong.
In addition, Lane Racing would like to thank all of Jay Kiser Racing’s partners for allowing them to take this opportunity, and all of Lane Racing’s sponsors for their continued support throughout the 2022 season!
