DDM Prepares for 2017 Season; Adds JC Crockett as Co-Crew Chief!
(January 10, 2017) Since the completion of their 2016 campaign in early October, Double Down Motorsports has been working feverishly to prepare for their second full season as a top-flight Super Late Model operation. To help prepare and work on the potent Longhorn machines for drivers Shanon Buckingham and Robby Moses, team owner Roger Sellers has added veteran crew member JC Crockett to the team as a Co-Crew Chief with Tom Buckingham. In addition to JC and Tom, Jacob Webber, Trevor Crittenden, and Evan Lohr will return to the Double Down Motorsports team to help turn the wrenches on both the #50 of Shanon Buckingham and the #21 of Robby Moses.

JC brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the team after stints with Daniel Baggerly (2008-2012), John Blankenship (2012-2014), and Chris Brown (2015-2016). "I am extremely excited to be a part of the Double Down Motorsports team and I can't thank Roger (Sellers) enough for bringing me on board," stated the Rural Retreat, Virginia native via telephone earlier today. "It is close to home for me and there is so much potential for this race team to do big things. The schedule we have put together is a nice fit for me, as it is a great regional schedule with some crown jewel races sprinkled in, so it is not the grind of being out on the road following a national tour. Hopefully we can perform well all year, win some races, and have a lot of fun along the way!" (Rick Schwallie Photo) | FULL STORY
