Historic Toyota Tundra returns to a action with Mike Skinner at Sebring International Raceway
NASCAR Truck Series Champion earns back-to-back overall wins in Group 10 class in ATF & Gunslinger’s first SVRA race
SEBRING, Fla. (March 3, 2019) –ATF & Gunslinger put historic trucks back in action this weekend, as they took on their first weekend of Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) competition at Sebring (Fla.) International Raceway. NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) champion Mike Skinner drove the team to victory in back-to-back wins, while earning the overall class win in each of the weekend’s two Group 10 feature races.
“It’s such a cool feeling to bring a retired Truck 10—what I view as the most famous Toyota Tundra ever built—back out and let it have another victory,” said Skinner. “It’s like taking a horse that has been put out to pasture five times, bringing it back out and it keeps performing. It’s just an amazing feeling. We have such great partners that allow us to keep doing this. From Toyota, Goodyear and Maui Jim, who have been with us since I was a full-time NASCAR racer, to Cessna, Wilkens Foodservice, JRi Shocks and Overkill Motorsports who have just joined us over the last few seasons—I really appreciate their support. Then you have Howard and Debby Palmer with E-Z LINE Structural Steel Fabrication who are some of our best friends in the whole world; but they’re also our partners and they help us go do this with ATF & Gunslinger. It’s so special.”
