Klutt's freshman season ended with 1 win, 2 pole awards and 7 top-10s in 11 starts en route to claiming Rookie of the Year honours.
"The competition at this level is some of the most intense I've ever raced against," remarked Klutt when asked of his first full season competing at the national level. "Last season was an amazing experience for our entire team. Every race that we unloaded at was a new challenge and a new learning experience. I couldn't be more proud of every single person on this crew and couldn't be more grateful to each one of our marketing partners that helped make it all happen"
CTL Corp. will also return to Klutt's program in 2016, joining with Pioneer Family Pools to provide support for Klutt's push towards a first career series championship.
"I'm ecstatic to have the opportunity to represent Pioneer Family Pools at the national level," said Klutt. "We have huge plans for a follow-up to our Rookie of the Year season, and Pioneer is going to help us make those plans a reality. The NASCAR Pinty's Series is poised for an awesome season and it's an honour to have the means to be a part of it"
"We are all very excited to be a part of Gary Klutt's efforts this season," said Harry Martyniuk on Pioneer Family Pools' inaugural foray into NASCAR's national series. "Gary is a talented young up-and-comer, and we're looking forward to seeing him on track this year. We've known the entire Legendary Motorcar family for quite a while, and this is an excellent opportunity to continue to support a great group of people"
"Gary has demonstrated a genuine passion for racing," continued Martyniuk. "To be successful in this sport takes a real team effort and it's a similar effort that has made Pioneer Family Pools one of the leading pool, patio furniture and hot tub retailers in Southern Ontario. This is a new venture for us at Pioneer Family Pools. Gary and his team exhibit the core values of fun, family and togetherness. We brought the same values to families in Southern Ontario for over 50 years through the products we sell. Gary is a driven young man and places value on the support he gets from the members of his team much the same as we do at Pioneer. It's just a great match for us all."
Gary Klutt will make his first on-track appearance of the 2016 season at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park on May 22nd for the annual 'Clarington 200' series opener. However, fans can get up close and personal with Klutt during the NASCAR Pinty's Series autograph session at this weekend's Motorama Custom Car and Motorsports Expo at the International Centre in Toronto.
Fans can stay up to date with Gary throughout his 2016 campaign by following him on Twitter @GaryKlutt, Facebook and Instagram.
