Graves Motorsports and Kolt Walker Part Ways Effective Immediately
Inside Line Promotions – MESQUITE, Texas (June 16, 2014) – Graves Motorsports is for sale.
After parting ways with driver Kolt Walker this past weekend, the entire Graves Motorsports organization is available for purchase.
“The whole race team – rig, cars, motors, everything – is for sale,” Graves Motorsports Co-Owner Jerry Graves said. “All they have to do is get a drivers suit and a helmet to race.”
To inquire more information, contact Jerry via e-mail at ARockMaterials@yahoo.com.
Walker said he, his crew and his sponsors are actively seeking a ride to continue competing for the ASCS Lone Star Region championship as well as wins throughout Texas and the Midwest.
“I’m thankful and appreciate the opportunity that Jerry and Donna Graves provided me,” he said. “It’s time to move on and pursue other opportunities.”
The team ended on one of its roughest weekends of the season.
Walker was caught up in a wild crash during the opening laps of his ASCS Lone Star Region heat race last Friday at Timberline Speedway in Corley, Texas. The wreck destroyed the race car and ended Walker’s night early.
The weekend concluded on Saturday at Devil’s Bowl Speedway for a co-sanctioned event with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour and ASCS Lone Star Region. Using the backup car, Walker charged from seventh to third place in his heat race on the hooked-up track.
That earned him a spot in the feature redraw, where he pulled the No. 5 to start the 30-lap main event on the inside of the third row.
“The engine was running warm in the heat race,” Walker said. “We richened everything up and did some stuff to the radiator to get more air. It wouldn’t go on the takeoff (of the main event). It just lugged real bad and it was getting slower and slower. Around Lap 23 I decided it wasn’t worth tearing the engine up so I pulled in to save the engine.”
Walker was credited with a 15th-place result.
The team ended the season with a trio of tops fives and seven top 10s in a dozen races. Walker ranks third in the ASCS Lone Star Region championship standings with the next event in the middle of July.
