Thirty Years of Friendship Culminates with Special Paint Scheme on Darin Mock's Racecar at Road Atlanta This Weekend

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (March 20, 2024) – It was over 30 years ago when Steve Sousley walked into Butch Mock’s NASCAR Cup Series race shop seeking employment. The meeting led to not only a job offer, but also a lifelong friendship—one that will culminate this weekend with Sousley’s ProFabrication, Inc., featured on a racecar driven by Mock’s son, Darin Mock. The younger Mock will be racing the No. 51 ProFabrication Ford Mustang for Nitro Motorsports at this weekend’s Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli’s CUBE 3 Architecture TA2 Series race at Road Atlanta. The weekend will also mark ProFabrication’s entrance into the TA2 Series market, offering exhaust systems to teams throughout the paddock.

“We're all super excited for this weekend,” said Sousley. “As a business owner, we've done very few sponsorships with customers or teams. Working for Butch [Mock] was my first job in professional motorsports; we’ve had a great relationship for over 30 years. I'm honored that we're able to come together and have this opportunity to have our name on his car. It's exciting to go to the track and watch Darin—I’ve known him his entire life. Butch has been a mentor to me throughout my career, and I have a tremendous respect for him and all of his achievements. Being able to do this with him is really cool; we're thrilled to be a part of this event.”

“I'm excited to race at Road Atlanta,” said Darin Mock. “It's my favorite track out of all the racetracks that Trans Am visits. I have it circled on my calendar and always look forward to it, but it’s even more special this year with having ProFabrication on the car. With the history between Steve and my dad, it really is a full-circle moment. It means a lot to have Steve’s company on board, and I’m excited to see them enter the TA2 market with their products.”
