Beers Joins Up With Gaydosh Team for '07 Mod Campaign
Crowley to Turn Wrenches For New Combination
Asphalt Modified standout, Eric Beers of Northampton Pa., has joined forces with team owner Gary Gaydosh of CT, to run the entire 2007 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour in the JMG Excavating number 94 NASCAR Modified. Kevin Crowley of Billerica, MA, will serve as the Crew Chief.
Crowley has assembled a formidable team with aspirations of a breakout season. “I feel that I have a driver and crew that are performing at the top of their game in our division,” related Crowley. “They all have diverse and successful backgrounds and are willing to put in what it takes to win. Their effort and attitude is a necessary component in propelling the team throughout the long season.”
Beers and Crowley have an excellent rapport when it comes to the driver crew chief relationship. “Eric is a racers – racer. He doesn’t care where the race is,” explains Crowley. “He wants to race and he wants to win. He never complains while out on the track, he gives the feedback we need to keep the entire operation performing at the highest of levels.”
Together the two have won races and championships; including the 2004 Speedweeks New Smyrna Speedway Championship, several Race of Champions Tour wins, of which one was the first ever Modified Feature at Adirondack Speedway plus many other top three finishes at the biggest Modified races in the country.
Beers has faith in everyone involved to get the job done. “Kevin and I have developed a unique relationship working together for so many years,” offered Beers. “He sets up a fast car and when I get out on the track, I can tell him what the car is doing and he has the uncanny ability to make the right adjustments to give us an even better chance to win.”
In addition to the support by team owner, Gary Gaydosh, who has a history of fielding competitive NASCAR Modifieds, it is the impressive crew that Crowley has assembled that will make the number 94 Modified competitive once the season begins at Thompson International Speedway in April. The cars will be housed at Crowley’s Garage in Massachusetts and will be worked on by a veteran group of crew members, who have been associated with Crowley for several years. The veteran crew provides the ability to prepare the cars for the challenging competition and have the consistent strong pit stops it takes to be competitive on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour. With the additional support from the core group of longtime Beers Motorsports #9 Modified Team Members, you have a team that is capable of winning immediately.
In addition to the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour events, Gaydosh Motorsports will field a team car for Justin Gaydosh to run at selected events.
Beers, who is to some extent superstitious, jumped at the opportunity to pilot the number 94 machine. During the 1998-2002 seasons, Beers won over 30 Modified features, of which many were in the Horwith Trucking number 94, so he is familiar with taking the number 94 to victory lane. The 2007 white and red number 94 NASCAR Whelen Troyer Modified will be powered by Billy the Kid Engines and Sunoco Race Fuels.

Beers and Crowley will begin the 2007 season in the Beers Motorsports # 9, Sunoco Race Fuels, Roc Modified Tour, Horwith Trucking Asphalt Modified at New Smyrna Speedway during Speedweeks, competing in the grueling 8-night World Series of Stock Car Racing marathon, as the team will work on building a strong foundation in preparation of the upcoming NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season.
