New Management Team Alliance With Grumpy's Performance, Inc

Empire Racing, a racing organization in both the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS), and the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) Racing Series as well as a development program announced Monday that Mike 'Grumpy' Cheek, crew chief, will expand his involvement with the team through Grumpy's Performance, Inc.

Team manager John Bellesfield and Excel Motorsports Services have parted ways with Empire Racing. Excel Motorsports Services was the firm managing the team. The team management firm Grumpy's Performance, Inc. will immediately take over the operation of the team.

"After five years, Empire Racing and Excel Motorsports Services have separated," Empire Racing owners Sean and John Corr said. "We would like to wish John Bellesfield all the best in his future endeavors."

Established in 2009 within the ARCA Racing Series, Empire Racing started to compete in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2012 with driver Sean Corr. With the partnership of Grumpy's Performance, Inc., the team is scheduled to field a team at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with driver Jake Crum.

"We are dedicated to making our teams ultra-competitive," John Corr said. "With the introduction of Grumpy's Performance, Inc. we know that we will continue to strive for success."

Mike 'Grumpy' and Sherry Cheek founded Grumpy's Performance, Inc. in 2006 as a driver development program. In 2013, Cheek became crew chief with Empire Racing. Cheek carries with him 38-years of experience in team management, as well as organization creation and development.

"I am very excited for the future of Empire Racing and I look forward to working with the Corr family," Cheek said. "John and Sean Corr have structured a great team with their leadership. I am eager to begin the task of securing the success for Empire Racing as well as the success of the driver development program."

The team will continue to operate out of its current facility in Mooresville, N.C., with the same team and crew continuing to be an integral part of Empire Racing, a division of ERG, LLC.
