2020 Matt Stone Racing SuperLite drivers Zane Goddard and Jake Kostecki are taking a leap in their career and stepping up to the next level.
"It is great to be renewing with Zane and Jake and being able to take that next step in their journey into the main game by putting them up into a full-time drive with our team. It is something we have worked very hard on and are very passionate about, so it is good to see it come to fruition." MSR team owner, Matt Stone
After successfully completing what was the initial year of the SuperLite program, both MSR rookies will progress to full time drivers in the 2021 Repco Supercars Championship.
"I am super grateful to everyone at Matt Stone Racing for allowing this opportunity, we've all been working for this for a long time and it is pretty cool to see it all come to fruition." says Zane Goddard
While Jake Kostecki said, "Signing for the 2020 season in the SuperLite program with Matt Stone Racing was a massive steppingstone for myself and now that I am going full time with the team is very exciting."
Matt Stone Racing are also proud to announce the continuation of their partnership with both Yellow Cover and UNIT into the 2021 championship season. Jake will remain in the #34 UNIT Racing machine while Zane will step across to the #35 Yellow Cover Racing rocket.
"UNIT is proud to announce its continuation as the naming-rights sponsor of MSR's car #34 and strengthen our relationship with Jake Kostecki as he enters his first full-time season next year.
"As an Australian-owned and run brand it has always been important for us to support local athletes, events and sports, and we are pleased to reaffirm our commitment to Supercars and helping to develop up and coming drivers via the UNIT Racing platform." says UNIT Marketing Manager, Toby Lynch
NTI's Head of Motor Portfolio, Nick Dendrinos says, "Yellow Cover look forward to returning trackside in 2021 and supporting MSR's new line-up. We're thrilled to see both rookies get the opportunity to step up. We're excited for Zane and we're here to back him all the way.
"We can't wait to reveal the new #35 livery. The Yellow Cover car will be unmistakable. Watch this space".
The team at MSR are focused on consistency as they head into their second season with young guns Zane and Jake. Although this year's season was shorter than expected, the team are super impressed with their commitment and determination, and believe they have the potential and promise in achieving great results in the 2021 season.
Matt Stone Racing is committed to helping young drivers move through the ranks and this is proof that the SuperLite program is an excellent steppingstone for young, up and coming driver's chasing their dreams.
