"I am very honored to be able to partner with NGK/NTK and their Shop Squad program for the 2023 season" said Van Wormer recently. "I believe everyone already knows that NGK is the best spark plug available on the market and not only do I run their plugs in my Dirt Late Model, but NGK is the only plug I use in all my applications. With NGK spark plugs under the hood, I know I will maximize my horsepower that will help put the #55 in victory lane. I cannot thank NGK and the Shop Squad enough and look forward to representing them on our IRON Motorsports car all year! We have had a good start to 2023 and look forward to building on the recent momentum to carry into Eldora and more special events this summer!"
Already competing in three events so far this year, Jeep is planning to take Memorial Weekend off with tentative plans to tackle Tri City Motor Speedway in Auburn, MI on June 2nd, and then to prepare the car for the upcoming 29th Annual Dirt Late Model Dream on June 8th, 9th and 10th. Preliminary nights on Thursday and Friday will split the field into 2 groups, with each group chasing the $12,000 prize. Driver's will accumulate points from each night to set the 6 Heat Lineup for Saturday's Headliner that pays $129,000 to the winner! If you cannot attend Eldora Speedway in person, you can catch all the action live each night on FloRacing.
