Inside Line Promotions - HARTFORD, Ohio (July 12, 2021) - Greg Wilson has enjoyed a successful start to a new partnership with Seeling Motorsports.
The Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics sponsored team has earned a top-10 result during each of its three weekends of racing together, including a ninth-place showing with the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions last Friday at Stateline Speedway in Busti, N.Y.
"It's exciting because it takes so much pressure off of me," Wilson said. "All of my sponsors went with me and have continued to support me. Hopefully we can form a good, competitive team that benefits us all. That's the goal."
Last weekend's highlight came on Friday with Wilson qualifying 13 th quickest overall before he advanced from fifth to fourth place in a heat race and from 13th to ninth in the feature. The weekend concluded with a 10th-place result in the B Main on Saturday at Sharon Speedway.
"We've ran five or six nights and in all but one of them we've been really competitive," he said. "We had one off night and we know what happened there.
"Between the driving side of it and being able to do more once we get going with sponsor stuff and keeping all of our people happy it's a great opportunity. From my standpoint, showing up at the track and helping a little with the car but not worrying about the setup has been huge already. I feel we've been more competitive."
Wilson and the team have a busy five-race slate with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series on tap this week. It begins on Tuesday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, for the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic prior to back-to-back Kings Royal events running Wednesday through Saturday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio.
"It's not exactly where either of us wants to be because it's hard to do something like this in the middle of the season, but I feel like we're as good as we're going to be at the moment," Wilson said. "If we can get into the races and catch some breaks, I feel we can be competitive at all five races. With Andy (Potter) working on it, the more we race together and understand each other the better we will get. From the start of the night to the finish of the night we've gotten better in all but one night so far and we know what happened there."
