(CLEVELAND, OH) Sam Maxwell Customs has joined the American Sim Racing Series as title sponsor of the ASRS Sam Maxwell Customs Truck Series.
The Sam Maxwell Customs Truck Series is two races into the 25 race campaign for 2017 and has seen two different winners in those races. Zac Bozanich picked up the win at Daytona where 51 drivers attempted to qualify for the 36 truck starting field while Danny Rodgers took the checkered flag at Atlanta, where 49 drivers attempted to qualify for the race. The Sam Maxwell Customs Truck Series returns to action Tuesday, March 21 at Auto Club Speedway.
“I am honored that Sam chose ASRS as the venue to promote his products, as many people know being comfortable while sim racing is one of the most important elements of what we do, you are in that seat gripping that steering wheel for nearly two hours at a time, so you must be comfortable and having a custom wheel with everything where you want it is huge and that’s what Sam does” said ASRS President Jim Foose. “This partnership brings all the work of the last year full circle for me and the league, and I appreciate all the support we have from our members and our great partners. This brings even more attention to the Sam Maxwell Customs Truck Series and our league and that is a great thing!”
The ASRS Sam Maxwell Customs Truck Series began in 2005 using the NASCAR Racing 2003 Season simulation, a run that continued until mid-2011 when ASRS made the switch to the iRacing Motorsport Simulation. The Sam Maxwell Customs Truck Series restarted in 2012 and has run ever since using iRacing. 2014 brought the debut of broadcasted races and 2015 featured the full schedule being broadcasted including the series’ 250th race at Homestead-Miami Speedway. In 2016 ASRS began a partnership with OffCamberTV (OCTV) that has grown into a driver supported broadcast partnership for the full schedule in 2017.
