Austin Berry has been forced to sit out of action the last two weekends while waiting on engine parts to put either of their two engines back in action.  In an effort to shorten their time on the sidelines they worked with their engine builder, A&C Racing Engines, to possibly combine resources from the two engines to make one that would get them back to the track.  Unfortunately, the team encountered challenges with that concept and has determined it isn’t a viable option.


Given that, ABR will sit out a bit longer until A&C Racing Engines has the proper parts to make repairs.  The team expressed their thanks and appreciation to Allen for the time and effort he has dedicated to trying to get them back to the track as quickly as possible.


Allen and everyone at A&C has been great.  It’s certainly not their fault we have been forced to sit out”, car owner Ken Berry commented.


“There are a lot of supply issues this season and we’re not the only ones affected.  We tried to do everything we could over the winter to try to prevent needing to sit out any races this year, but it still happened.  We just want to apologize to our fans.  We’ll be back soon, and we’ll be ready to go after another win“, Austin Berry added.


Although Berry had his No.86 The Tire Mart / JDS Racing / Berry’s Siding & Seamless Gutter / Locust Hill Custom Butcher Shop / Nathan Berry Beef Farm / A&C Racing Engines / Swift Springs / / Penske Racing Shocks / Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic / VP Racing Fuels / Rocket Chassis XR1 in the thick of the points battle at Port Royal Speedway before the engine issues occurred, that has changed due to their absence.  


We’re going to step back and look at our schedule.  It probably doesn’t make as much sense to chase the points (at Port Royal) now, so we will look at our options for some weeks and possibly venture to other places when it makes sense.  We’ll still be at Port Royal most of the time but everything that has happened opens up some other options“, Austin shared.


ABR is anxious to get back to the track of course.  The team is currently planning some cool things for this summer’s Kid’s Night at ‘The Speed Palace’ and they are working on some promotions for their primary partner, The Tire Mart in Harrisburg, PA.  


If you’re anywhere in the Harrisburg area, stop by and see the folks at The Tire Mart in Colonial Park. Thank them for supporting us.  They are great people, and they can help you with any service you need for your car or truck, not just tires.  Best of all, they are a local business that has been run on family values for over 50 years.  It’s tough to find a place like that these days.  We’re really proud of our relationship with them“, Berry said.
