2013 Preseason News for Gomez



Twin falls, Idaho-

With the start of the 2013 racing season just around the corner, Jonathon Gomez, driver of the #22 Century Motorsports and Marine Chevrolet Impala, gears up for another exciting year of racing. At the close of the 2012 race season, team owner John Gomez was busy making plans for a new race shop and late model program based in Twin Falls, Idaho.  After relocating a few members of the team, and with the new shop nearly complete, the Century Motorsports and Marine race team is anxiously preparing for the March 16th Spears SRL Southwest Tour series opener in Madera, California.

In addition to 5 SRL Southwest Tour races, Jonathon Gomez and the Century Motorsports and Marine race team plan to compete in the Rocky Mountain Challenge Series and over a dozen Late Model and Super Late Model events across the country at tracks from Monroe, WA to Pensacola, FL. “I’m excited about being able to have our race program here at home, and I can’t wait to get back into a racecar” says Jonathon “I’m really looking forward to competing at Pikes Peak for the first time. Magic Valley Speedway (Twin Falls, id), Evergreen Speedway (Monroe, WA) and Montana Raceway Park (Kalispell, MT) are a few of my favorite tracks and we’re lucky enough to have multiple races at each of them this year” he adds.

Following the March 16th season opener, Crew Chief Ron Copeland, mechanics Norman Hatke and Derek Copeland, spotter Loren Hill and tire specialist Mike Mulder, will have a short break to prepare for a busy April schedule of events starting in Monroe, WA at Evergreen Speedway on the 6th, with an April 13th race at Yakima Speedway in Yakima WA, followed by a trip to the Wenatchee Valley Super Oval in Wenatchee WA on April 27. “I’m proud of these guys, they work so hard to get these cars together and give me what I need race after race, year after year” says Gomez of his team.
