#91 Team News and Rumors
(NOTE: some older links may not work)

  • Congrats - Reed Sorenson: Reed Sorenson got engaged to Laura Frame over the Christmas Holidays. Laura is a Kindergarten Teacher in Mooresville, NC. They will set a date in 2013.(12-27-2012)

  • Cook to run the #19 at Sonoma: Chris Cook will try to qualify the #19 car for Sunday's Sprint Cup race, but if he makes the field his race is likely to be a short one. His team will likely call him into the paddock and retire the car after a few laps as one of the "start and park" cars.(Marin Independent Journal), Mike Bliss was listed in the entry list and is the normal driver.
    AND Cook will be in the main event, driving the #19 Toyota Camry for Humphrey-Smith Motorsports, as a last-minute substitute. Qualifying is Friday at 3:40 p.m. and the race is Sunday at noon. "This is not a track you can take for granted. You've got to be on your game," Cook said of his home track. The 3,400-pound machines are heavy, not sleek, and certainly not built for the challenges of a road course. "They like to go straight. These cars don't turn easily, they don't slow down easily," Cook said.(Larkspur-Corte Madera Patch)(6-22-2012)

  • Fines levied against Parsons and Humphrey: The North Carolina Industrial Commission has levied fines against Phil Parsons and Randy Humphrey, owners of HP Racing [was #66], now Phil Parsons Racing [is #98], for failing to provide workers' compensation insurance for most of the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season. Parsons, who also works as a television analyst for SPEED, and Humphrey were also ordered to pay medical bills and wages to an HP Racing employee who suffered a work related injury last summer. The commission determined that Parsons and Humphrey failed to have the proper workers' compensation insurance from February 11, 2011 - October 27, 2011. Workers' compensation insurance was obtained by HP Racing just five days before the claim was initially set to be heard before the Deputy Commissioner of the Industrial Commission. The Commission also determined that the HP Racing employee had sustained a compensable injury by accident during the non-insured period. The North Carolina Assistant Attorney General's Office, Fraud Unit was also involved in the claim against HP Racing,
    HP Racing [#66] competed in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in 2011, entering driver Michael McDowell in 32 events and earning over $2.4 million in race winnings. The team changed names in 2012, becoming Phil Parsons Racing [#98], a joint effort between Parsons, Whitney Motorsports and new partner Mike Curb, owner of Curb Records. Humphrey formed his own team [#19] for 2012, joining forces with Mark Smith to form Humphrey Smith Racing, fielding cars in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for driver Mike Bliss. The injured HP Racing employee is still awaiting approval from Parsons and Humphrey for necessary medical treatment, as well as payment of his wages and related medical expenses as ordered by the Industrial Commission. The employee has been unable to work since his accident last summer - and is ineligible for unemployment compensation - due to his injury and physician's orders preventing him from returning to work or seeking employment.(motorsport.com)(6-13-2012)

  • Humphrey plans for the #19 in 2012: #19 Humphrey Smith Racing team owner, Randy Humphrey comments on 2012 plans. "It's taken us a little longer than we planned, and been a little tougher than we thought, but we're working at it," said Humphrey, who fielded Mike Bliss' #19 Toyota in Sunday's STP 400 at Kansas Speedway. "We've been thankful to be here, and NASCAR's really been good to allow us to keep working at it and it's been good to us. We're trying to build our program into a bigger program. It's all about people, it's all about sponsors and making everything go." Humphrey, a veteran racer himself, is in his first season with new business partner Mark Smith after he and previous partner Phil Parsons [was #66, now #98] decided to part ways after the 2011 season. "Phil and I made a decision to do something different," said Humphrey, who stayed in Topeka during the Speedway race weekend. "They went a different direction and we went a different direction. We partnered up with Mark Smith, who has been building our motors for four years and owns three Nationwide teams," Humphrey said. "We rented a new big shop. Bliss had been driving for us before, and we got Mike to drive for us." The #19 car has qualified in three of four races, including the Kansas race, since getting a belated start to the year. "We waited a few races to get ourselves acclimated, to get our equipment built up and get our stuff in order and find the right people," Humphrey said. "We're now moving forward and have done really well since we started.'' Humphrey's team continues to employ a start-and-park strategy in most races to save money but has sponsors set up to be able to run complete races later in the season and also will race out of pocket in others. The long-term goal is be able go full bore in the series. "My whole mission is to race," Humphrey said. "I moved from Kansas to Charlotte to race. Our whole mission is to make this into a full-time racing program, with sponsorship. We've talked to some Kansas companies, we've talked to some Topeka-based companies and we're hoping some of those will take notice of us and work with us and come along and help us build our program."(Topeka Capital Journal)(4-23-2012)
