With the closing of the 2014 season and the ending of the X1R Pro Cup Series, Walker Motorsports has decided to change gears for the future. Having spent many years in the NASCAR Late Models as a prestigious car owner to some of the top name drivers of the NASCAR division, Owner Chris Walker of Walker Motorsports is taking a new direction. As this change approaches, we will be transitioning in the Super Late Model division of the C.A.R.S tour this upcoming season. Utilizing our knowledge of NASCAR Late Models/X1R Pro Cup cars, we will be preparing to run with the most reputable teams of the Super Late Model divison. This is a substantial achievement for our company and an appreciable opportunity for our past and future customers. We hope to continue to satisfy our customers during this conversion, as that is our foremost priority. Thank you to our past and future customers as we begin this journey as a pristine team to the C.A.R.S tour Super Late Model division.
JET Polymer Recycling Joins XR-1 Pro Cup Team
JET Polymer Recycling has teamed up with Daryl Eustace Racing and Walker Motorsports to sponsor the #17 Walker Motorsports X1-R Pro Cup Series car this weekend at Montgomery Motor Speedway.
The Scottsboro native competed in a 2011 X1-R Pro Cup Series race at Myrtle Beach Speedway in Myrtle Beach, SC for Andy Hillenburg’s Fast Track Racing. This was the first X1-R Pro Cup Series race for Eustace but not his first time in a stock car. Eustace came through Andy Hillenburg’s Fast Track Driving School to gain valuable experience behind the wheel. With experience of long time ARCA owner Andy Hillenburg and crew chief Dave McClure, Eustace was able to keep the car in one piece throughout the race and move into the top ten before a late race mechanical failure put the Taylor Group Recycling/Jet Polymer Recycling Ford Fusion behind the wall. “According to some of the more experienced drivers here, keeping the car out of trouble at Myrtle Beach Speedway is an accomplishment in itself”, said Eustace after the race. “Some of those more experienced drivers asked why I would pick such a difficult track to drive for my first race. I really enjoyed the race and hope to return to Myrtle Beach.”
The next season Eustace signed a one race deal to drive the Taylor Group Recycling Dodge Charger at Mobile Speedway in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards. Eustace made the field and started in the 30th position. With an ill-handling race car all weekend, Eustace still managed to bring the car home in the 26th position.
This weekend Eustace will make only his second start in the X1-R Pro Cup series. “I am so pleased to get back on the track and drive for such a great group of guys” said Eustace on Tuesday. Jet Polymer Recycling came on board as the primary sponsor for the # 17 Walker Motorsports X1-RPro Cup Series car this weekend.” Jet Polymer Recycling is an ISO9001:2008 certified and family owned thermoplastic recycling company based in Fort Payne, AL. They produce and sell post-consumer and post-industrial recycled products into the thermoplastic industry. Additionally, using an integrated recycling approach, they source, buy and broker scrap from consumers, manufacturers and other recyclers across the world. JET Polymer Recycling is especially interested in the automotive manufacturing market of the Montgomery, Alabama area.
Jet Polymer Recycling is a sister company to The Traylor Group Recycling which has been the primary sponsor for Daryl Eustace Racing in the past. “Finding a sponsor has become very challenging in today’s market so we want to thank Jet Polymer Recycling for jumping on board this weekend at Montgomery Speedway,” says driver Eustace. “With the help of Stacey Puryear and car owner Chris Walker I feel sure we can have a great finish Saturday in the Koma Unwind 200.”
Daryl Eustace Racing is currently searching for sponsorship to run more races in the X1-R Pro Cup series as well as the ARCA Racing Series and other venues. DER offers several different sponsorship packages to fit all businesses, working with sponsors to give them the best return on investment.

Walker Motorsports is a family owned team & was established in January 2013 by Christopher Walker of Archdale, NC. Chris has also been around racing for a very long time. He started out racing go-karts for 10 years but then a medical condition stopped his racing career at the age of 18. But that wasn’t going to stop him from being a part of the sport. And after he graduated High School, he joined Michael Ritch Racing, starting out as a parts cleaner then later moved up to a front tire changer. From there he worked with numerous Nascar teams as a front tire changer but after a few pit road accidents he decided it was time to call it quits. From there he got the fire to start his own Motorsports team and that’s where we are today!!
