Following the sale of much of the Clack Motorsports Top Alcohol Funny Car
equipment, team driver Will Hanna enters the remainder of the season as a 'free
agent' driver. After breaking into the 5.60's at the recent ACDelco
Gatornationals, Hanna plans to diligently pursue another ride for the 2008
season or sooner.
Hanna, 27, of Richwood, Texas, received news
earlier in the week that Team Owner Harry Clack had made the decision to sell
the race team to focus on his new business venture, a sports bar/resturaunt, The
Big Easy Daiquiri Factory in Orange Beach, Ala.
"I completely understand and respect Harry's
decision to focus on his new business," said Hanna. "There is no ill will on
either side, it was just a business decision on Harry's part. I wish him the
best and hope to see him back on the scene when his business allows. He took a
big chance on a rookie and stuck with me while I was developing. We made great
strides the past two races, but business trumps racing in the absence of a major
sponsor. I really enjoyed the two years we raced together and I'll always be
grateful of the opportunity Harry gave me."
