Story initially reported by DirtonDirt.com.

After spending a year behind the wheel of the Larry Garner-owned Blount Motosports ride that resulted in a Southern Nationals championship and two feature victories including a $10,000 triumph at Tri-County Race Track in Brasstown, NC, Casey Roberts has announced that he will pilot the Longhorn by Weaver Chassis owned by Wynn Motorsports for the remainder of the 2019 season. Roberts and BMS parted ways at the end of the 2018 campaign which left the Toccoa, Georgia native without a ride until the announcement.

Ray Cook had been the driver for Wynn Motorsports but cited his ever growing commitments to his Tri-County Race Track and the Southern Nationals family of race series as a reason for scaling back his driving duties.

Roberts spent several years driving for Jim and Anne Cushman until those owners decided to step away from the sport at the end of 2017. With that team, the 41-year-old racer won numerous features including a Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series race at Smoky Mountain Speedway to go along with a Southern Nationals championship.

Roberts will not only have Longhorn Chassis but will also have a Durham Racing Engine and a Jay Dickens power plant at his disposal with Penske Shocks also on board. The No. 101 car and its new driver will hit the track sometime in mid-March with plans of running as many as 30-40 events in 2019.

Edit: Removed wording that Ray Cook would continue to drive Capital Race Cars for Wynn Motorsports.
