BK Racing has moved from its Statesville, N.C. headquarters to a larger shop in Charlotte, which formerly housed GMS Racing and BAM Racing. The team’s new address is 11881 Vance Davis Drive.
“We needed a new location that allowed for more space to increase our performance,” Ron Devine, owner of BK Racing, said in a release. “We continue to invest into race operations to improve our potential and performance both on and off the track. It all starts in the race shop, and having the best resources and assets, in addition to our team of employees.”
BK has not yet announced its drivers for 2015, the team’s fourth season in NASCAR Sprint Cup. Alex Bowman ran a full season last year in the No. 23 while Ryan Truex, Travis Kvapil and JJ Yeley were all in the No. 83 and/or 26 cars.
“Such a massive gut punch on Saturday,” Dean Wilson wrote on Instagram on Tuesday. “Just as I was gaining good momentum riding well, feeling good and chasing my first win things turned in the blink of an eye.”
With that post, Wilson announced that he will be out for the remainder of the Supercross season, which includes races at East Rutherford, N.J. and Las Vegas, Nev. An MRI earlier in the week revealed a shoulder injury. He also sustained damage to his kidney in a Lap 8 accident while he was running in the top 10.
Wilson’s injuries will not require surgery.
Wilson’s season began with a lot of promise. Earning the holeshot in the season-opening race at Anaheim, Wilson led for a time before narrowly missing the podium in fourth.
Two weeks later, Wilson finished fifth overall in the Triple Crown event of Anaheim II. Those are his only top-fives of the season.
“The tough part of this is I have been trying so hard this year to be back where I need to be trying to get a job for next year,” Wilson continued.
Next Race: East Rutherford April. 27, on NBCSN and on NBC Sports Gold
