Trevor Farbo Makes Jump From Pro Challenge to Pro Cup
16-Year-Old To Run for Rookie of the Year Title
Trevor Farbo has turned a lot of heads in recent years, but he hopes to turn a lot more in 2008. Farbo, 16, recently made the bold announcement that he will make the leap into the highly-competitive USAR Hooters Pro Cup Series.
When asked about his 2008 Pro Cup endeavor, Farbo does not seem fazed by the thought of competing against drivers more than twice his age.
“This is by far the biggest step of my career,” said Farbo. “I am confident in my abilities as a driver and I know my team has put all the right pieces together to have an excellent shot at experiencing success in the [Hooters Pro Cup] series. Of course it is going to be a huge challenge, but I am certain that we will step up to the plate and get it done when it counts.”
The young native of Concord, North Carolina recorded a stellar Aaron’s Pro Challenge Series season in 2007 as he was crowned Aaron’s Pro Challenge Rookie of the Year as well as finishing second in the national points championship.
Farbo was a force to be reckoned with after scoring three national victories along with a majority of top-five finishes. In the summer of 2007, Trevor sharpened his skills by competing in a Legends car during the televised Summer Shootout Series at Lowe’s Motor Speedway. The stats were impressive as he recorded 1 win, 6 top-five finishes,
and a third-place finish in both Red, White and Blue points as well as the Summer Shootout Championship Standings.
Now graduating to full-size stock cars, Trevor is poised to make a lasting impression. With a two-car stable of Chevy Impalas fielded by Trevor’s father, Greg Farbo, and sponsorship backing from Reagents, Inc., the team is ready for a run at the Hooters Pro Cup Rookie of the Year title.
“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to compete at this level,” said Trevor. “I’m ecstatic about the 2008 Hooters Pro Cup season and I am fully prepared to represent Reagents, Incorporated in a professional manner. I also look forward to being an outstanding role model and earning the respect of race fans nationwide.”
