STATESVILLE, N.C. (January 22, 2013) – BK Racing begins its second season of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series racing with some changes in different levels of their operation.

Harry McMullen will remain in his role as the team’s General Manager, which he’s held since the team started January 2012. Just added to the team is Rick Carpenter, who will be the Assistant General Manager helping McMullen with the day-to-day operations. Carpenter comes from Tri Star Motorsports, most recently, and Rusty Wallace Racing, where he held the position of General Manager at both teams. He also worked at Penske Racing.

As previously announced, Mike Ford is now the team’s Director of Competition. The veteran crew chief, with 21 wins and 17 poles in 453 NSCS starts, is overseeing shop and race-prep activities of BK Racing’s two NSCS entries.

Doug Richert has been promoted from his role as crew chief on the No. 83 Burger King/Dr. Pepper Toyota Camry. The championship leader with 13 wins to his credit will now serve as a supervisor to the crew chiefs overseeing their efforts at the shop and during race days.

David Reutimann, a two-time race winner will drive the No. 83 Toyota this season full time. The native of Zephyrhills, Fla. drove in two races for the team last year. Pat Tryson, who has eight trips to Victory Lane, is now the team’s crew chief. He came on board towards the end of 2012 to assist on both teams.

Travis Kvapil will remain in the No. 93 Burger King Toyota Camry with Todd Anderson returning as his crew chief. The 2012 season was Anderson’s first in that capacity with Kvapil, the 2003 NASCAR Camping WorldTruck Series champion, who has made 210 NCSC starts.

“I feel good about the additions we’ve made to this team in the off-season,” said Ron Devine, owner of BKRacing. “We’ve brought winning and experienced management on board to guide us in the right direction. We’ve added David (Reutimann) to our driver line-up and Pay (Tryson) to our crew chiefs.

“Doug (Richert) will be even more valuable to us now helping out Pat and Todd with their teams. The hiring of Mike Ford as our Director of Competition to work with a veteran like Harry McMullen really strengthens what BKRacing needs to move forward in this sport.

“We still have a few other things to announce in the near future. But the good part is we are building a team to go racing and be successful in all aspects of our team.”
