RaceOnTexas.com would like to welcome Maine resident Phil Whipple to the company. Whipple will serve as a staff writer, creating exclusive content including race recaps and human interest/feature stories from around Texas.

Whipple started his motorsports journalism career back in 1992, writing a column for the famed 'Speedway Scene' trade paper. In 1993, he began a busy three-year run as a PR representative in theNASCAR Busch North Series.

He returned to journalism in 1998 and was hired by the award-winning Lewiston Sun Journal in 2000. Whipple spent the last 18 years covering auto racing for the Maine-based daily newspaper. He now covers weekly and touring Super Late Model racing throughout New England for Speed51.com, the nation's No. 1 Website for short track stock car racing coverage. Whipple is also the Media Coordinator for the new Texas Dirt Truck Series.

At this time, we offer a hearty Texas-sized welcome to Phil to the staff at RaceOnTexas.com. We know he brings a lot to the table and look forward to his written materials as we all dive head-first into a full slate of racing in 2019.
