Tyler Hines of N. Haven, CT will begin his rookie campaign Sunday in the Chassis Dynamics-Pettit Race Engines No. 94 SK Modified® at Stafford (CT) Motor Speedway. The 2014 SK Light Modified Most Popular Driver won the NAPA Spring Sizzler weekend race last year. Hines had two wins in three seasons in the SK Light Modifieds. The team sold the car after last season and have a new car from Steve Greer with a former Frank Ruocco engine.
“My short-term goal is to finish races early on and get seat time to get acclimated to SK racing,” Hines said. “Long term goal is to battle up front and possibly get a win and try and win Rookie of the Year.”
The Chevrolet Cavalier is owned by his parents George and Christine Hines with George Hines and Mark Cooper handling the crew chief duties. Former SK Modified championship crew chief Stash Butova, Steve Butova, Stan Zunda, Billy Dillon, Sue Weller, Dave Greer, Kevin Pierce, Paul Popielarczyk, his grandfather Butch Hines, and his brother Jake Hines are his crew.
