No “Off-Season” for Yoder Ahead of Busy 2019

Staff Report | Thursday March 14th, 2019

While Mark Yoder did not compete in the Indoor Auto Racing Championship Series this winter, the cold weathered months were anything but relaxing for the driver of the #75 Ames Construction/ Neshaminy Electrical Contractors Hyper Chassis.

“We spent a good bit of the off-season rebuilding the our car and adding some updates to it which will help us out with speed and handling on race day,” stated Yoder.

The team’s hard work will surely pay off and for good reason. Yoder is preparing for a full season, championship run in the 2019 Hoosier Tire-Mid Atlantic ATQMRA powered by VP Racing Fuels season.

“I’ve had a lot of help this winter to get us to a point where we feel confident about competing for top 5s and wins this season. Tom Frachetta did a lot of the updates. My dad, with help from Ted Schmidt and as well as Larry and Jason Hentrich put a lot of work into this car. I can’t thank them enough for all the help.”

On the ATQMRA off-weekends, don’t be surprised to see Mark and his team sling some dirt in his micro-600 as well.

“While our TQ remains our top priority, the goal this summer is to get as many laps as possible and be competitive in doing so. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Catch Mark and the rest of the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic ATQMRA powered by VP Racing Fuels storm into the Lehighton Pennsylvania’s Mahoning Valley Speedway on Saturday, April 20th 2019 to kick off a brand new season.
