Sean Corr is taking his talent to the NASCAR Camping World Series Garage this week after his strong fifth-place finish during the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards season opener at Daytona. Corr moved up over a dozen spots during the course of the 200 mile ARCA race on Saturday Feb 16th.

Qualifying in the same car he won the pole with last year, Sean was able to shave off three tenths of a second to earn the 18th starting position for the race. After a gas and go pitstop, Corr entered the top 10. Pairing up with series veteran Frank Kimmel, he continued his advance through the field.

“I am so glad to be able to have put the #82 Warriors In The Workplace/LBS South Ford Fusion in the top 5 here in Daytona. Ben Leslie and the Empire Racing crew worked hard and put together a really good car,” Corr said. “RoushYates Engines and Nick Ramey gave us the power we needed to get to the front after starting 18th.”

Corr pointed out that a combined effort from sponsors and his shop played a huge part in his strong finish. Not only were sponsors thanked, but the young driver tipped his cap to an ARCA series veteran and former Champion.

“We had several new marketing partners join us this week, CroftgateUSA and RageTank, and I am happy that we were able to give them a good experience here at Daytona,” Corr said. “I also want to thank Frank Kimmel for working with us as our drafting partner today.”

Now it’s time for Corr to move his helmet and gloves over to the NCWS garage as he takes to the high banks of Daytona again in the NextEra Energy Resources 250 in the Truck race on Feb 22nd.
