TULSA, Okla. – Frank Flud has branched out and created a driver development program, which hits full steam this weekend as the outdoor season begins for Frank Flud Racing.
Flud and his development drivers – Jace Park and Ethan Ayars – plan to compete in both the Stock Non-Wing and Winged ‘A’ Class divisions this Friday and Saturday at Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Okla., during the Lucas Oil National Open Wheel 600 Series presented by Hi-Plains Building Division season opener.
“I’m excited to guide some up-and-coming drivers with their setups as well as talk to them throughout each race night,” Flud said. “I’m looking forward to sharing what I’ve learned and the experience I’ve gained throughout the years with a younger generation coming into the sport.”
Flud is the winningest driver in NOW600 Series history, capturing 49 Stock Non-Wing wins and 53 Winged ‘A’ Class victories during series competition. He also won series championships in both divisions in 2017 and 2019.
Flud is tied for the lead with two career NOW600 Series Stock Non-Wing triumphs at Red Dirt Raceway. He also holds the top spot in Winged ‘A’ Class victories thanks to winning the last four in a row.
“We’ve enjoyed a lot of success at that track and we’re looking forward to producing another good weekend,” he said. “The goal is to compete for wins each night and to help Jace and Ethan improve every time they hit the track as well as to be in contention at the end of each night.”
