Ford Performance Joins TSR

Share:

INDIANAPOLIS - With the 2017 sprint-car season opening today in Florida for Tony Stewart-Curb/Agajanian Racing, the team features two of the most accomplished drivers in all of motor sports.

Behind the wheel of TSR sprint cars are eight-time and reigning World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series champion Donny Schatz and three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Tony Stewart.

The team has announced the continued support from Curb/Agajanian’s Mike Curb and partner Cary Agajanian in co-entrant roles, and the addition of Ford Performance as a partner on both cars.

"The strength of any team is the sum of its parts, and we are so fortunate to be surrounded by so many incredible people and partners," said Stewart. "To sustain success, a vision of the future must evolve from within. Mike Curb and Cary Agajanian have been part of our commitment to championships the past five seasons, helping us continue to raise the bar. And I’m excited that Ford Performance is teaming up with our organization."

Curb’s tradition of motor sports involvement dates back to the early 1980s. TSR became part of that history in 2010 when Curb/Agajanian became a co-entrant on TSR’s United States Auto Club entries. While earning USAC championships in both the Silvercrown and Sprint Car Series with Levi Jones, Bobby East and Bryan Clauson, Schatz carried the Curb brand to a 2012 WoO championship and a victory in the 2013 Knoxville (Iowa) Nationals before Curb/Agajanian elevated to co-entrant on the TSR No. 15 in 2014. TSR/Curb-Agajanian won the 2014 and 2015 Knoxville Nationals and the last three WoO championships heading into 2017.

"Curb Records and Curb-Agajanian Motorsports are excited about expanding our relationship with Tony Stewart, with Tony driving alongside teammate Donny Schatz," said Mike Curb.

As Ford Performance returns to sprint cars, it will work to develop a 410-cubic inch engine the teams will ultimately compete with. In the meantime, Schatz and Stewart will continue competing with their current motor programs.

"We're happy to be partnering with Tony Stewart Racing in this effort," said Dave Pericak, global director of Ford Performance. "Tony and his team have been leaders in many of the grassroots racing efforts in this country and we're happy to assist them in this program. Although our Ford engine will not be ready at the start of this season, we're committed to getting a competitive engine package available to this program as soon as possible."
