Austin Langenstein and KAR Racing Announce Winter Race Schedule!

, N.C.

Austin Langenstein, along with KAR Racing, have announced their intention today to run an aggressive Winter Schedule to conclude their 2009/2010 racing season.

“We are getting our cars and team ready for an all out assault”, said Austin Langenstein.  “This is going to be a take no prisoners approach as I close out my career in the INEX 600 Bandolero Series style race car”, added Austin.  “Since we last raced we have been very busy doing a lot of promotions for our sponsors and raising money and awareness for our different charity groups that we promote through our association with racing.  It’s going to be a lot of fun getting back on the race track again”, said the young driver.

Austin had a great summer driving the #7 Bandolero and would like to recognize his contributing sponsors: Rifenburg Construction, Scotty’s Fashions, Original Pizza Logs, Mohegan Sun Casino & Resort, Walker Lawn Mowers by GHS, Energy Logic,, A.E. Smith Electric, Truck, Tathwell Printing, J. Edwards Designs, Taste Apple, Design Engineering Inc., Coconut Island, Razoos Cajun Eatery, Sweeteners Plus, John Davison Racers Designs, Micro-Armor, PUMA, Lake Norman Soda Blasters, QA-1 Precision Products, Impact Racing, Performance Prime, Thermal Control Products, The Brake Man, Schroth Racing, Calico High Performance Coatings and Charlie Langenstein Speed Shop; for all their support and assistance.

In 11 National Points Events Austin scored 3 wins (two at the Lowe’s Motor Speedway during the 2009 Summer Shoot-Out and one at Atlanta Motor Speedway), 7 top five and 7 top ten finishes; an extremely impressive record for this young up and coming driver.

“We have 12 more races coming up this winter at many different style race tracks”, said Austin.  “I love this portion of the schedule and have been looking forward to this for a long time”.  “We have one more race on the 1/4 mile at Lowe’s and then we move over to the fast 1/5th mile for a series of events, including a 100 lapper, with a handful of road course races at Lowe’s and Rockingham thrown into the mix as well”, Austin grinned, “and everyone knows how much I love those”, he added.  

“These races will give my marketing partners a lot of visibility, starting with the event on Pole Night at Lowe’s on Thursday night, October 15th.  This race takes place during the NASCAR Sprint Cup run for the Pole, which attracts well over 50,000 people annually and the exposure we plan to get is priceless”, noted Austin.

“ is right down the street from Lowe’s Motor Speedway and we want to showcase our program in front of this captive audience for them”, said Austin.

“We have a lot of good things starting to happen as we start to make our plans for 2010 and these races will be a huge part to closing a lot of our deals and I plan to be on my game and focus on winning these races”, Austin concluded.
