Robbie Mansfield is leaving his longtime IHRA Pro Stock sponsor Dingman Racing in an attempt to
pursue his NHRA aspirations with Wilson Manifolds. Wilson partners Keith Wilson and Scott Revell
are pushing hard to put Mansfield behind the wheel of a third KB Racing Pro Stock machine for the
2009 season. Mansfield has already demonstrated his abilities with two impressive appearances at
the Indy Nationals and again during the Carolina Nationals at Concord, NC.
This move allows Dingman Racing to replace Mansfield immediately with a new driver, and to take
advantage of early testing for the 2009 IHRA Pro Stock season. Dingman Racing will announce their
new driver soon.
Wilson Manifolds' livery will continue to adorn the Dingman Racing transporter and Wilson employee
Justin Elkes will continue his co-crew chief duties for the Dingman team at the forthcoming final
race at Rockingham.
Wilson, who has enjoyed close relations with Dingman during the past five years on the IHRA
circuit, will continue their development work on the team's 824 IHRA race motors.
