So the Mercer group is private messaging Penn Ohio drivers on Facebook asking them to support Mercer both days over the Penn Ohio series. Problem is they didnt do their homework and messaged Shaun Hooks who is not only a registered driver but also the series promoter. Ooops. Old habits die hard I see. Stay classy Mercer.
My guess is they identified past Mercer regulars, including Hooks, and sent them this message. Probably sent it to other "household name" drivers, too.
Did the message specifically mention not going to the Penn Ohio race, or did it just ask them to support Mercer? If the former is true, they're agressive - it's a one-off race; what do they have to lose? If the latter is true, fake news.
If at first you don't succeed, then maybe you just suck.
