Established in 2009, Empire Racing Group is a driver-development team that strives to identify young racing talent and assist them in the advancement of their careers. While ERG originally focused on the ARCA Racing Series with drivers Sean Corr (team owner) and Mason Mitchell, the team has since expanded its reach into other series thanks in part to its alliance with Grumpy’s Performance, Inc. Under the expertise of crew chief Mike ‘Grumpy’ Cheek, ERG now competes in various Late Model series and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS). In 2016, Empire Racing Group will be serving as a developmental team for Richard Petty Motorsports, providing young drivers with driver coaching, technical support, as well as public relations and marketing needs. RPM will also utilize ERG for developing full pit crew for opportunities within the RPM organization. Additionally, ERG will compete in multiple racing series including the ARCA Racing Series, NCWTS, and NASCAR Late Model Series at various local short tracks. Drivers for the 2016 season include notable rising stars Austin Hill and Dylan Martin, Thad Moffitt, as well as racing veteran Sean Corr.
