A FRIENDLY REMINDER
EDMONTON, AB – The Northern Provincial Pipelines Late Model Series is proud to continue an annual off-season tradition. The official pace car of the NPP Late Model Series is once again displaying a special decal honoring the top three drivers and top rookie from the just completed race season.
“This decal features the top drivers of the Series from 2015,” says NPP Series announcer Gord Craig, “it’s for everyone to see and a friendly reminder that we [as a Series] don’t hibernate during the off-season.” Darrell Midgley took home the season championship in 2015. “This is the second time that his familiar Integra Tire(Edson) #14 Dodge has been featured on the back window.” The Sidney, British Columbia driver won his first NPP Series Championship back in 2009.
For the second consecutive season Mark Miller’s A1 Autobody #69 Chevrolet is featured on the back window of the pace car. The Calgary, Alberta driver finished second in 2015 and won his first ever championship in 2014. Edson, Alberta’s Ken Clark finished third in the 2015 point standings and Sylvan Lake, Alberta’s Marc Hobe’ was top Rookie. “Really nice to see Ken and Marc’s race cars on the back window [of the pace car],” adds Craig, “these two are real fighters. They both fought through some stuff during the season but persevered and never gave up.”
The 2016 race season of the NPP Late Model Series is still more than seven months away. The official pace car and website remain active during the off-season. “This pace car is our moving billboard,” exclaims Craig, “you just never know where it will make an appearance.” During last year’s off-season the NPP Series Pace car was seen in six US States including California and Arizona.
