Inside Line Promotions — LINDSAY, Okla. (April 18, 2016). — Harli White is excited to announce that she will head to Australia in the offseason for the first time in her career.
White will pilot a winged 410ci sprint car for Paul Stirton and the A-One Charge Air Coolers team from early December until the middle of January when she will return to the United States to compete in the Chili Bowl Nationals.
“I was super pumped to hear about the idea,” she said. “For it to be a real thing is pretty amazing. It’s always a dream for sprint car racers to go over there and race. It’s an honor to go over there and race. The family and team I will be racing for are super good people. I’ve had some fans from Australia already. To be able to meet them and make new fans will be awesome as well. I’m honored and blessed to be a part of something like this.”
While a schedule hasn’t been set, White said the team is building two new race cars for the six-week trip and working on graphics, which will incorporate some of White’s sponsors in the United States.
“I plan on arriving before Christmas and racing a couple of shows,” she said. “We want to hit a few races to get some seat time and practice. After Christmas I’ll race in the big shows. I’ve never raced a 410 before so that’s an exciting challenge as well.”
The opportunity appeared after the driver’s seat opened recently.
“They’ve been following me through my career and their past driver just retired,” she said. “They were looking for a new driver and I guess my name has been on their list. One of the team guys is coming in June to spend a couple of weeks racing with us. Everyone at Harli White Racing is ecstatic about this opportunity.”
Special apparel will be available to preorder before December. More details about the apparel and the trip will be announced in the near future.
