Sinclair To Back Self in Nine TA2 Races In 2021
February 16, 2021
(High Point, NC) Sinclair Oil Corporation will join Michael Self as primary sponsor on his Silver Hare Racing TA2 Camaro for nine races in 2021, beginning this weekend at Sebring International Raceway. The company has been a long-time supporter of Self, first partnering with him in the 2016 ARCA Menards Series season finale at Kansas Speedway. Since their first race together, they’ve gone on to compete in the K&N Pro Series West and two full season ARCA efforts, collecting eleven wins between the two series and finishing second in the ARCA championship in both 2019 and 2020.
“The Trans Am schedule and partnership with Michael and Silver Hare Racing provides Sinclair with valuable opportunities to engage with our distributors, dealers and licensees in our marketing footprint,” says Jack Barger, VP of Marketing at Sinclair Oil.
Self is a familiar face in the TA2 paddock, having coached drivers in the class since 2015. He was recently hired by Silver Hare Racing as General Manager where, in addition to driving, he will oversee operations. Having come up through the ranks of karting, open wheel and sports cars, Self is shifting focus from full-time oval racing back to his roots.
“I’ve always had a passion for road course racing and would always circle those events on the ARCA or K&N schedules as races I looked forward to,” said Self on his transition back to road racing. “The partnership I’ve been fortunate enough to build and grow with Sinclair has really led to all of these opportunities being opened up for me. They took a chance on me with the oval racing a few years ago, and I’m extremely proud of what we accomplished over there together, now I’m anxious to see what kind of splash we can make in the road-racing world. I can’t wait to have Dino on the side of our SHR TA2 car.”
