MARYVILLE, Tenn. (Aug. 28) Nothing succeeds like success and the recent success of Blount Motorsports and driver Tommy Kerr has caught the attention of WATE Sports anchor Mike Wogan.
Wogan and a camera crew spent time at the BMS shops with Tommy on Wednesday afternoon taping a segment on local racers that is scheduled to air tonight on WATE Channel 6 in Knoxville at six and eleven.
“It was a surprise to me and honestly kind of interesting how they went about the whole thing,” said Kerr. “It will be fun to see what they will use out of all the time they spent taping.”
Kerr went on to say that he would have felt more comfortable if the whole team would have been involved.
“The reason we have been running so well lately is not because of the driver alone. But because the driver and the whole team have come together and are working real well together,” continued Kerr. “I don’t want it to sound like we don’t appreciate the coverage that Mike Wogan and Channel 6 have given us. It is great exposure for the Blount Motorsports Team and especially for all our sponsors that make it possible for us to race.”
The next two races for Kerr and the BMS Team will be the Advance Thunder races at Mountain Raceway Park in Maryville on Saturday night and Tazewell Speedway in Tazewell on Sunday night. They have won the last three Advance Thunder Series events and are making a late season run on point leader Rick Rogers.
Blount Motorsports enjoys sponsorship from Blount Excavating, Stowers Machinery Corp., Kelso, Turner Industrial Supply, GEOServices, Cast Stone, Wine and Spirits Cellar, Insurance Partners, Explosive Specialists and Murphy’s Bobcat.
Tommy races a GW Performance Rocket chassis with power from Custom Race Engines, shocks from Öhlins, chassis and suspension components from TWM, seats from Butlerbilt and Sunoco Race Fuel from Bearden Oil.
