CHRIS GRBAC SET FOR ATLANTIC CITY RACING ACTION-

                                                   PLANS BUSY 2011 CAMPAIGN

  

                                        SOMERSET, NJ Ė Popular 40 year second generation racing stand-out Chris Grbac is currently in the midst of planning a very hectic and varied racing season in 2011. It will all get underway the weekend of January 28 and 29 at the Atlantic City, NJ Boardwalk Hall indoor racing events.

                                          Grbac is set to see racing action at that time in the Slingshot ranks. After those activities conclude he will setting his sights on becoming a regular on the Race of Champions Series. He will take to those racing wars with a Bicknell chassis mount equipped with a small block power plant assembled by fellow racer Kenny Carberry.

                                             In addition he also is setting his sights on being in the Modified field at the New Egypt, NJ Speedway as much as possible during the fast approaching campaign. Grbac has a separate big block Modified creation ready for this weekly competition. Assisting in a big way in these efforts are long-time friend John Larsen and Chrisís uncle Jimmy Grbac. A good bit of technical advice that comes from Joe Mcfarlan has been greatly appreciated also.

                                            His good friend, Bobby Sandt, Jr., who will soon become a part of the Grbac family marrying Chrisís 19 year-old daughter has also spent time wheeling a 600cc micro along with Sportsman and Modified stock cars.. Sandt has even spent some time behind the wheel of a 305 sprint car.

                                              In 2011 Sandt will be making his debut in the United Racing Club sprint car racing ranks. Assisting him in this first time venture will be long time Grbac Racing Team supporters Tom and Carmella Ditmars.

                                              Chris Grbac, especially, has very high hopes for the coming season to be a successful one. It just may be his time to make a big mark on the sport of auto racing in the same manner that his noted late father, Mike, did during his racing career.

                                                Racing roots continue to run quite deep in this Grbac family. Chrisís daughter, Destiny, competes in the micro stcok and go kart ranks at the Snydersville Speedway. His eight year old son, Christopher, is starting to get the feel of a go kart.
