Hawker Racing – Third Place
CAYUGA, ONTARIO (October 29, 2014) – Placing third in the 2014 Pro Modified Racing Association Championship Point Award Series was Derek Hawker with his 1968 Pontiac Firebird.
The journeyman racer, who hails from Corbyville Ontario, qualified for all PMRA events this season with the Hawker Racing Pro Modified, a car which produced numbers in the low six-second range at speeds of 230 mph down the quarter-mile. His best showing in 2014 was a semi-finalist position at US 131 in Martin Michigan.
Power for the Firebird comes from a 526 cubic-inch BAE engine with a PSI D Screw Supercharger and a Billes fuel system. A Lenco three-speed is attached to the powerplant, and all this sits in a Vanishing Point Race Cars product.
Scott Sager is crew chief for the team, which includes Corrie Hawker, McKenzie Hawker, Brittany Hawker and Eli Mayhew.
Sponsorship for the team is provided by Hawker Construction, Pennzoil and Empey Tire.
Hawker will be honored at the upcoming “Night of Champions” Championship Point Award Series Banquet for the Pro Modified Racing Association (PMRA), the Quick 32 Sportsman Series and the Pro Bike & Sled Series (PBSS) will be held at the Burlington Hotel & Conference Centre in Burlington, Ontario on Saturday, November 8, 2014.
