FALMOUTH, Maine – After a pair of wins last season and a runner-up finish in the PASS North Series championship standings, Mulkern Racing heads into 2012 eager to build on the success it forged in the second half of 2011.
New Brunswick driver Lonnie Sommerville is back with crew chief Gary Crooks to run the full PASS North schedule, while team owner Scott Mulkern will run a partial schedule with Seth Holbrook calling his shots atop the pit box. Sommerville won at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in July and finished second in the final standings as a PASS rookie – garnering co-Rookie of the Year honors for his efforts, while Mulkern won the season finale in October at Oxford Plains Speedway.
Both drivers feel all the parts are in place to improve on their strong finish a year ago.
“We can keep things going. We're going to just get better and better, I really believe that,” Mulkern said. “Time is everything, really. It takes time to build all the stuff you need to get it where you want it. If you're working on setting everything up, it just takes time.”
