North Carolina Racer Launches New Team Website

Mooresville, North Carolina (11/30/20) – Nick Hoffman put an exclamation point on his 2020 season on Saturday evening.

With 44 Brucebilt Performance Iron-Man Modified Series entries on hand for the fifth running of the annual event, Hoffman earned a front-row starting spot for the 25-lap feature via his qualifying effort. He out-dueled Justin Allgaier to the lead as the finale went green. The North Carolina racer went on to pace every circuit of the finale en route to the victory, which marked his first ever with the tour.

“I didn’t forget how to win,” Hoffman laughed after the feature. “I haven’t felt balanced in this new car until tonight. We tested all last night and picked up the pace today. Thanks to all my fans, sponsors and everyone that helps make it possible. We’ve got a lot of momentum in our corner as we prepare for a big 2021 season.”

Justin Allgaier, Brandon Kinzer, and Blake Brown completed the Top-5 finishers.

Rico Abreu scores top-five and podium during Copper Classic weekend at Arizona Speedway

Dates: Friday and Saturday, November 27th-28th
Event: Fifth Annual Copper Classic
Series: ASCS Southwest Region 360 Sprints
Track: Arizona Speedway (Queen Creek, Arizona)
Rico Abreu A-Main Finishes (Start):
Friday: 4th (4th)
Saturday: 3rd (2nd)

ST. HELENA, California (November 30, 2020) - The decision to venture south from the heart of the Golden State to take part in Arizona Speedway’s annual Copper Classic proved to be well-worth the miles logged, as St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu secured back-to-back top-five finishes during the ASCS Southwest Region doubleheader, highlighting each of his starts with a third-place performance during the $5,000-to-win finale on Saturday.

Abreu, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Abreu Vineyards/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/The Wiser Agency/Self Made Racing/Salty’s BBQ/Whistle Stop Bar and Grill/Wiser Golf/J. Davidson Scrap Metal/No. 24 sprint car, led the majority of Saturday’s 30-lapper from the outside-front row, eventually surrendering the top spot to Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson with just eight laps remaining. A slight bobble on the cushion through turns three and four allowed Larson to sneak by. Carson Macedo, who helped create a California podium sweep, would also slip by Abreu just before the two-to-go signal was given.

With 55 cars entered for action, Abreu opened the Copper Classic finale with a victory during his respective heat race and qualifier.

Before snagging a podium run on Saturday, Abreu commenced Copper Classic weekend with a fourth-place finish during preliminary action on Friday; he started in the exact same position.

“It was a fun weekend. We were happy to get a few more races in before calling it a season,” Rico Abreu said, who will end 2020 with six victories on the year. “I can’t thank my team enough for stepping up and making the trip to Arizona. It was a long weekend, but we raced well and put together some solid runs. That’s a great momentum boost heading into the off-season.”

Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will soon begin the scheduling process for 2021. Any news and notes pertaining to Rico Abreu’s upcoming agenda will be released in the near future.

Mallett Improves in 2020 to Place Sixth in ASCS National Tour Standings

Inside Line Promotions - GREENBRIER, Ark. (Nov. 30, 2020) - Jordon Mallett made the most of his sophomore campaign on the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour by finishing sixth in the championship standings, which was a three-spot improvement from his rookie season.

"The COVID-19 virus really put a big damper on the year, but we recovered to do fairly well and didn't have a single DNF all year," he said. "I think if we'd had more races to run we could have been more consistent, but we made the best of it and it wasn't too bad considering the circumstances."

Mallett's best finish of the season on the tour was a second-place outing at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., in September during the 10 th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial. He also scored finishes of fifth and seventh during the three nights of racing at the facility.

Other highlights included a fourth-place run at Caney Valley Speedway in Caney, Kan., in June and a fifth-place result at I-30 Raceway in Little Rock, Ark. He climbed as high as third in the championship standings as well.

"There is always room for improvement, but looking back it was a solid effort," he said. "Of course we want to win every night, but making sure our program is continuing to move upwards at the end of the year is the main goal and we did that for sure.

"It was really tough as every time you left the track you couldn't be certain the next race on the schedule was even going to happen. It just made it really hard to plan and be fully invested in racing when there was so much going on worldwide."

With COVID-19 causing ASCS National Tour race cancellations, Mallett was forced early in the season to find places to compete. As his team made the switch to Triple X Chassis in the offseason, Mallett needed to be able to build a notebook for when the series resumed.

As a result he participated in the 15th annual USCS Series Speedweek and on the heels of six consecutive top-five finishes, Mallett was able to capture the Speedweek championship for the first time in his career.

He finished second at Old No. 1 Speedway in Harrisburg, Ark.; third at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark.; third at Lexington Speedway in Lexington, Tenn.; third at North Alabama Speedway in Tuscumbia, Ala.; third at Hattiesburg Speedway in Hattiesburg, Miss.; and third at Jackson Motor Speedway in Byram, Miss. Mallett was the only driver to finish on the podium each night.

"The Speedweek deal really allowed us to figure out our equipment at a time when we really needed to get some laps and learn," he said. "To be sitting on the podium every night against talent like that was a huge confidence booster and made us feel really good about making the switch to Triple X."

Mallett ended the hectic season with 13 top fives and 18 top 10s in only 32 races. This marked an improvement from the 2019 season in both categories with 10 fewer starts as a result of COVID-19.

"It's definitely a bummer to not win any races, but when you look at the stats we improved from last year and I'm proud of that," he said. "We lost a ton of racing this year and to improve like we did gives us some validation that we're moving in the right direction long-term."


32 races, 0 wins, 13 top fives, 18 top 10s, 24 top 15s, 28 top 20s






"I really just want to thank all of my sponsors for sticking it out with us this year during a year when there was so much uncertainty everywhere," Mallett said. "This was a trying year for us as a race team and I know it was no different for businesses worldwide. It says a lot about how great of partners we have and I'm grateful for the opportunity to represent them every time we hit the track."
