After sitting out the last two NHRA national events, Greg Stanfield is back racing his Pro Stock Camaro.
Stanfield is returning to action at the Route 66 Nationals Thursday through Sunday at Chicago.
“We are teaming up with Richard Freeman to run his motors at the next two races Chicago and Norwalk (July 5-8),” Stanfield said Tuesday. “We have got these two races with this deal and then we will see where we are at. This would be great if this would work out for both of us.”
Stanfield made some test laps Tuesday at Tulsa (Okla.) Raceway Park with Freeman’s motors in his Camaro.
“Everything looked really good,” said Stanfield about the three full test runs he made. “We made three runs to get an idea of where things are at and I think we should be really good.”
Stanfield said he is not going to be running as a teammate with anybody. Stanfield didn’t compete at Englishtown, N.J., and Bristol, Tenn.
Stanfield has competed at eight national events this season, the last coming at Topeka, Kan., on May 20. Stanfield is 14th in the point standings. He finished seventh in the points last season.
“We have been talking for awhile and he (Freeman) wants us to run his motors,” Stanfield said. “We are under-funded and we really do not have the money to do it right, so this could be a real good deal.”
Veteran engine guru Jimmy Oliver spearheads Freeman’s engine program.
“I have known Richard (Freeman) for a long time, but I have never had the opportunity to work with Jimmy,” Stanfield said.
Stanfield is especially glad to be returning to the track.
“A bad day of racing is better than no racing,” Stanfield said.
