He’ll officially get things underway this weekend – February 28 - March 2 – with a trio of events during the Chevrolet Performance World Championship Week at Bubba Raceway Park.

“Man, this winter has seemed especially grueling, and I’m looking forward to getting things underway this week,” Ford commented. “The past few years we’ve run mainly a partial schedule, but this year will our most aggressive season to date, so I’m really chomping at the bit.”

The 31-year-old racer has spent his entire life around the race track. The 2019 campaign will mark his 12th year of competition. He’ll once again be behind the wheel of his Mike Whitehead Racing No. 83 Whitehead Construction Inc./ TNT Race Car/ Eagle Racing Engine Late Model. To date he has amassed 65-career victories.

“Kicking things off with the Chevrolet Performance World Championship Week will be a nice measuring stick of where we are at with our program,” Ford continued. “There’s going to be a lot of stiff competition, but hopefully we can come away with some big wins.”
