Hardcore Motorsports ARCA Safety Initiative Adds New Position

Kibler, who already has a racing and emergency services background, also serves as the safety director at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio.

"I look forward to the chance to work with all the teams, drivers and officials at ARCA by providing a higher responsibility in safety for the Truck Series," said Kibler. "I also look forward to working with the different tracks, as we can all learn from each other."

Kibler's job duties will include inspection of the trucks for safety equipment, inspection of driver personal protective equipment, review of driver physicals and investigating safety related incidents. He will also inspect each race facility for safety related items/devices, and make sure the track surface is ready for competition. In addition, Kibler will respond to incidents on the track and in the pit area to assist track safety workers. Essentially, Kibler will serve as the safety liaison between the series and the track.

"Safety is, and always has been, the primary focus of the Hardcore Motorsports ARCA Safety Initiative," said ARCA's Safety Services Manager Marc Williams. "In addition to our affiliation with SFI and what we're already accomplishing with the ARCA RE/MAX Series, we're now ramping up the way we administer safety procedures at all the ARCA Lincoln Welders Truck Series events. Having Terry represent the Hardcore Motorsports ARCA Safety Initiative in the truck series allows us to be more responsible in all things related to at-track safety.

"We will continue to work with each track to ensure the very best possible situations in terms of meeting the necessary safety standards, but, if necessary, we come to the track, as the sanctioning body, ready and able to do whatever we need to do in any situation regarding safety."

Kibler has served in his new role with the Lincoln Welders Truck Series since the Anderson Speedway season opener in April. Kibler will also be working some RE/MAX Series events in 2007 as his schedule allows.

The Hardcore Motorsports ARCA Safety Initiative debuted at Daytona International Speedway in February of 2006.
