Big Wheel has Big Plans in 2021!

[FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE] - 12/17/20 - (Sheboygan, WI); Scotty Thiel will have a new look coming into the 2021 race season as he inked a deal with the pairing of STM and Ozzie Motorsports. The new partnership will be competing full time with the Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprint Car Series to chase a championship, along with competing at various World of Outlaw and Allstar Circuit of Champions events as their schedule allows.

The 2020 race season for Scotty Thiel and his race team was simply summed up as “trying.” The team found speed all season long but came up short to park the 64 car in Victory Lane. A few high notes of the year was setting Quick Time with the World of Outlaws at the Jackson Motorplex in June, a couple dash’s with WoO at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 and the Wilmot Raceway. The team was faced with some struggles late in the year with three DNF’s in a row. The low point of the season and a collapse of energy and drive with Scotty and his team. The team finished off the season with two podium finishes in Illinois and Missouri before heading back home to begin a much needed offseason. However, a new spark of energy came along after a call from Ozzie and Fran of Ozzie Motorsports. After several meetings, the pair reached an agreement to create one ultimate race program for 2021!

Already starting to build up equipment, the team will start the race season at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, GA on January 29th and 30th with the Allstar Circuit of Champions followed up by an early week venture to East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, FL! The 73 team will then turn their focus to run the full Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprint Car Series schedule and chase for a championship. Over the course of the season, they will also plan to attend a good majority of World of Outlaw and Allstar Circuit of Champions events as the schedule allows.

“I honestly didn’t see this opportunity coming at all. After we finished out the year in the 64 car, my team and I had some brief talks about doing something different in 2021 and focus on specific events” Thiel noted. “After a couple meetings with Ozzie Motorsports and their sponsors, my team and partners, we all agreed that merging our programs into one stable would create an ultimate force that can tackle both goals and plans we had in mind. So in the end, it’s a win-win for both parties. My guys and I were able to run for Oz and Fran last year a few times and we all really clicked. Being able to have them all on board for this coming season will really make this team gel right away.”

“We wanted to come out in 2021 stronger than ever and ultimately go win a championship with the IRA” Ozzie explained. “After laying out some options, talking with our sponsors, we decided that Scotty and his team were the right people to team up with and chase that goal. And with that, also be able to go out and travel with these other series and attend some high caliber events.”

Keep up to date as the new #73 team continues to prepare for the upcoming season. A full schedule will be released soon on and the Scott Thiel Motorsports Facebook page, soon to have new branding.
