Bozell Racing Wins JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour PitBoxes.com Pit Crew of the Year AwardScott Menlen
Salem, IN (November 8, 2016) – The Bozell name has been known mainly around the Michigan and Northern Indiana area race tracks for many years, but more recently the Bozell name has become a regular name with the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance, as Bozell Racing has been a full-time, two car team with the series the last two seasons. Andy Bozell, a 12 time Track Champion at Kalamazoo Speedway, and his son Phil Bozell, also a former Track Champion at Kalamazoo Speedway, have been mainstays of the series, traveling up and down the road to race at tracks throughout Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, with a stops in Missouri and Georgia.
Phil Bozell, in the #04 Bozell Racing Chevrolet, finished fifth in series points in 2016 with a season high finish of fourth twice, at Anderson Speedway and at Winchester Speedway on Labor Day Weekend. Andy Bozell has been the main racer behind the wheel of the #83 Bozell Racing Chevrolet with Randy Chupp and Jerry Andrews each running one race in 2016. That team finished seventh in series Owner Points in 2016, with the team’s high finish of sixth at Owosso Speedway with Andy behind the wheel.
The Bozell Racing Team is by far not one of the best funded teams with the series, yet the team had two race cars at every event in 2016, thanks to a great group of dedicated crew members and family, that put forth a huge effort at every event. That hard work and dedication has earned Bozell Racing the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour 2016 Pitboxes.com Pit Crew of the Year.
“We really appreciate the recognition for our crew in receiving the 2016 Pitboxes.com Pit Crew of the Year,” remarked Phil Bozell. “Andy and I want to thank each crew member who worked on our cars during the 2016 season, obviously without their hard work and dedication, we wouldn’t be able to race in the series events. We also want to thank all of our wives, girlfriends and family who are a big part in helping us get to each and every race! I personally want to give a special thanks to Greg Cady and Randy Chupp for their help and support of the racecar I get to race with the series.”
The JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour 2016 Pitboxes.com Pit Crew of the Year members for Bozell Racing include Joe Metzger, Jeff Wolfersberger, Jon Orr, Matt Marshall, Danny Foote, Erin Bozell and Andy Bozell Jr., and all the others who jumped in to help at some point during the 2016 season.
“We really appreciate Ricky Sanders at PitBoxes.com coming up with this great award,” remarked Glenn Luckett, Managing Partner with CRA. “Ricky wanted to create an award that recognized the people behind the drivers in our series. The drivers get recognition at each race, but with the Pitboxes.com Pit Crew Awards for each series event and the season, a lot of the hard working crew members for the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour teams get recognized also.”
Luckett added, “The Bozell Racing team worked hard to get their cars to the track and prepared for each race, but they also had a never give up attitude, no matter what happened to their cars in a race, they would work their butts off to get their cars better or to just get them back on the track to complete laps. We appreciate all their efforts this season!”
