However, after missing the first two races of the 2012 season, it was time for a change.
The SFP 250 at Kansas Speedway was a first for many things for the MB Motorsports organization. For 17 consecutive seasons, MB Motorsports campaigned Ford F-150s. When the team rolled into Kansas Speedway, though, they unloaded a shiny new Chevy Silverado. Behind the wheel of the black #65 Making the Driver Chevy was rookie driver Scott Stenzel, who was making his very first NASCAR start. When the green flag dropped, MB Motorsports was in the field for the first time this season.
“We defined a victory this week by setting achievable goals for the team,” stated Mike Mittler team owner, “Our first goal was to make the race and our second was to finish the race. Today was a victory for MB Motorsports.” After qualifying 32nd the #65 Making the Driver Chevy Silverado was in the race and one goal was achieved. MB Motorsports accomplished their second goal when Stenzel piloted his way through the field to finish 23rd, bringing the truck home with nary a scratch on it.
“Working with a race team of this caliber has given me the confidence to push harder and focus even more,” said Stenzel. “We accomplished our goals as a team this week and hope to carry that momentum into the future.”
The next MB Motorsports race event is yet to be determined.
