With A New Hometown And A New Ambition, Roger Crockett Set For 2019

(Special to Shawn Miller)

Medford Oregon’s Roger Crockett is set to embark on a new era of his driving career. After relocating to Broken Arrow, Oklahoma last year, the Sprint Car veteran is tackling the full Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series (ASCS) in 2019.

Crockett aimed to tackle the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour as a full-time competitor last year for the first time in his career. His campaign got off to a rousing start by winning the season opener. Unfortunately, misfortune hampered him throughout the season, and he was forced to pull off the tour in late June.

Roger Crockett won the 2019 Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour opener.

“Last year we had a terrible year, the worst year since I started racing,” Crockett said. “Things didn’t go right and I made mistakes. The primary problem was we just didn’t run well. We made a lot of changes and we’re pretty confident we stumbled upon our problem. We finished last year with the car we wanted.”

For the 2019 campaign, Crockett is utilizing JR-1 Chassis and Rider Racing Engines. He also welcomes primary sponsorship from Tulsa’s Route 66 Chevrolet.

“It’s been a goal for a really long time to figure out a way to run the ASCS National Tour,” Crockett said. “Even when I was living on the West Coast I was constantly trying to figure out.

When not competing with the Lucas Oil ASCS, Crockett plans to fill his schedule with regional events throughout the Midwest. He’s shooting to enter roughly 60 events this season.

“My dad still helps out a lot with BC Motorsports and I want to say thanks to Steve and Kim Swinney for their continued support,” he said. “We have a lot of things going our way and we’re excited to go after a full season on the ASCS National Tour.”

Crockett’s season with the Lucas Oil ASCS kicks off this Friday and Saturday at Devil’s Bowl Speedway (Mesquite, Texas).
