KBR Development announced their ARCA team will close immediately.
The team was formed at the start of the 2018 season and raced with various drivers including David Gravel, Connor Mosack, Sheldon Creed and Brandon McReynolds.
In January the team hired former ARCA Champion, Frank Kimmel as its General Manager.
Although it was not mentioned why the team will close down, it is expected due to the lack of racing from COVID-19.
In the 20+ years that I’ve been involved in motorsports as either a team member, driver, crew chief, a manufacturer, owner, or representing an organization in the sport, I’ve been blessed to have worked side by side with a number of great people along with a lot of the past and present industry leaders. Over those years, together we have won our fair share of races all while losing our share. We’ve set records, battled through many sleepless nights rebuilding cars and traveling, been involved in different rivalries and altercations, and along the way met a number of great people/friends. Through all that, I’ve been blessed to have either been crowned or part of a number of different Championships but like most things eventually they come to an end.
To all the past and present team members, the number of different drivers, the variety of marketing partners, customers, to my family and the people that have supported & cheered along over the years, I want to say THANK YOU, it’s been fun and was quite the ride.
The race team has said they will soon sell their assets online, which will include: Trailers, ARCA Cars, ARCA & Late Model Engines, Late Model Cars, Pit Boxes, Tools, Radios, Shocks, Springs, Scales, Shop Equipment, Track Equipment, Pull Down Rigs, Etc.
