Story By: BEN SHELTON / SEAWRIGHT RACING / TBR – FORT PAYNE, AL – Seawright Racing and Troy Baird Racing are joining forces for a few late season events before preparing for a run at the 2024 Hunt the Front Super Dirt Series title.

“This is a really cool deal for our team as well as Troy Baird Racing. Michael (Page) is to a point in his career where he only wants to race a few times each year, and Troy Baird was unsure if he would stay in the sport if his cars weren’t racing much, so we started talking and found a deal that is great for all of us,” Sam Seawright said. “I’ll split time between my equipment and Troy’s equipment. I’m going to debut in Troy’s car this Saturday at Duck River (Raceway Park), and I’m just thankful for the opportunity.
“I’m also excited to have Michael Page returning as our team’s crew chief for a third year next season. He’s helped us step up our program, and I’m confident we can be a contender next year for the Hunt the Front (Super Dirt Series) title.”
