Rustin Mayse to Debut New Amer
Seventeen-year-old Rustin Mayse, son of 2005 BTE Million Dollar Race runner-up Robbie Mayse will debut the first of the Mayse teams two new American Race Cars dragsters this weekend at the Tenn-Tuck Triple Crown event at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, KY.
The younger Mayse has earned a solid reputation on the race track in two short years behind the wheel. Rustin, from his families Frost, TX home, gained instant success by earning a runner-up finish in Hot Rod at his first event (an IHRA Pro-Am at Red River Raceway) in 2004. Red River was also home to his first $5,000 bracket victory, along the DragRaceResults.com tour in 2005. He added a $10,000 victory at the Mega 10’s series in Memphis, and an NHRA Super Street triumph at the LODRS event in Noble, OK last fall.
The Mayse racing team took delivery of two new American Race Cars Patriot Series Dragsters just a few short weeks ago, and the Tenn-Tuck event will mark the debut for Rustin’s machine.
“We’ve actually got both cars running,” said Rustin’s father Robbie. “But the body for my car is still at the paint shop, so I’ll have to wait another week or so.” Both cars were assembled at Edmond Richardson Motorsports, alongside Scotty Richardson’s new American built swing-arm dragsters.
“As far as assembly and quality goes, I couldn’t be happier with the American cars so far,” said Mayse. “I’m impressed with the attention to detail, and I’m really pleased with the way the cars turned out. Rustin and I can’t wait to get them on the track and get to racing!”
Travis Colangelo, Mark Horton, and the staff at American Race Cars urge any Tenn-Tuck competitors in the market for a new dragster to take a look at Rustin’s new American Dragster this weekend. American Race Cars customers Brian Lampton and Luke Bogacki will also be on hand with their Patriot Swing Arm dragsters.
