LONDON, Ont. --

John Evanchuk and Rob Atchison
Atchison Racing and "Back to Back" IHRA World Champion Rob Atchison are pleased to announce the addition of Edmonton, Alberta's John Evanchuk as driver of the second Erickson Manufacturing Pontiac at the 2005 Mopar Canadian Nationals. John made his eastern Canada debut at last years Mopar Canadian Nationals where he qualified 5th before losing in round two to Terry Munroe. "John and I became good friends at the inaugural Rocky Mountain Nationals" stated Rob Atchison. We managed to get sponsorship for him to come to Ontario and drive our second car last year we all had fun at Grand Bend Motorplex and even though we couldn't get any additional sponsorship we decide to race both cars. This event we have all of our crew here so we have lots of bodies that can maintain both cars.

John Evanchuk races his own 2003 Pontiac named Red Wolf in Western Canada and the US at both NHRA and IHRA events. "This is a great to be associated with such a great group of guys and to drive such a great car" stated Evanchuk. It is no fluke that Robbie and his team are World Champions because they are very talented and have the dedication it takes to succeed. Last year my wife Ruth and I had a lot of fun being part of this team and meeting the great Ontario fans. This year my crewman Shaun is coming because Ruth has work commitments and it will be a great opportunity for him to work hand in hand with the best. Atchison Racing Marketing Manager Dennis Smith is busy trying to get a sponsorship package in place so I can come back East and run the AC Delco Canadian Nationals at Toronto Motorsports Park. Atchison Racing receives valuable support from primary sponsor Erickson Manufacturing and Associate Sponsors Atchison Machine Service Inc., MacMaster Chevrolet, Pennzoil Lubricants, Performance Racing News, TEAM Truck Centres, Tool & Cutter Supply, Ultimate Touch Collision and West Coast Transportation.
