Forrister Set to Run Talladega with Lira Motorsports
Lira Motorsports announces today that Korbin Forrister will be behind the wheel of the No. 59 ARCA Racing Series entry at Talladega Superspeedway for this weekend’s General Tire 200.
Ever since he was able to walk, Korbin had the need for speed. He knew at a young age that motorsports was where he wanted to be. He can typically be found at the dirt track because that’s where he got his racing start, but his passion truly lies within asphalt stock car racing.
Forrister, who has years worth of experience in both the ARCA Racing Series and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, is excited to be tackling the high banks of Talladega. This will be his second career ARCA start at the track following his 13th place finish there in 2013.
“I’m looking forward to being in Talladega,” Forrister said. “I have some success there in the ARCA Series and the NASCAR Truck series with a few top-15 finishes, but I really think we can be fast enough to get a win there this weekend.”
This weekend, Forrister will be bringing new sponsors on board of the No. 59 Ford Fusion. Far From Stock will be the primary sponsor on the hood of the Lira machine, as well as Banana Oral Solution, and Tilted Kilt.
“This team is extremely competitive, and I couldn’t be more thankful for the opportunity. Thanks to Carlos, my sponsors, and the team for allowing me to hop on board. It’s going to be a fun one, for sure.”
Lira Motorsports would like to thank the sponsors and Korbin for coming on board this weekend in Talladega for the General Tire 200. It will be shown live on Fox Sports 1 at 6PM/ET.
