Welcome to our Covenant Racing Team website. We are delighted to share the unique history of the creation of the Covenant Racing Team with you.
In December 1993, Doug and Connie Thompson married. Doug had been involved in stock car racing from the age of nine. He had a dream to use the skills, training and opportunities stock car racing had given him to glorify the Lord’s name.

Early in their marriage, Doug and Connie got down on their knees and asked the Lord to give them an opportunity to use Doug’s racing career, both past, present and future, to glorify the Lord’s name by developing the Covenant Racing Team.

Immediately one door after another opened to give Doug and Connie the opportunity to develop the Covenant Racing Team.

The Covenant Racing Team expanded its racing operation from late model dirt track racing in the Midwest to the NASCAR Goody’s Dash Series followed by a limited number of races in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.

Since 1993 the Lord has opened the doors for Doug and Connie to develop Kansas Racing Products. KRP builds the “Super Duty” cast iron four cylinder inline block which accepts V-8 small block Chevrolet cylinder head, Ford SVO V-8 cylinder heads or Mopar Performance V-8 cylinder heads. KRP also manufactures intake manifolds, crankshafts and other component parts.

The Covenant Racing Team also developed the Kansas Auto Racing Museum located ½ mile south of Interstate-70 at Chapman, Kansas. The Kansas Auto Racing Museum is home to the first NASCAR trophy, first NHRA trophy, restored race cars, rare film footage and memorabilia highlighting the rich, proud racing tradition of Kansas. The museum has developed into one of the finest tourist attractions along I-70.

The Lord blessed the racing operation by allowing Doug and Connie to acquire interest in the Jayhawk Racing Journal. The JRJ provides weekly racing coverage for sixty race tracks throughout six states in the Midwest.

In 2003 the Covenant Racing Team returned to its grassroots of late model, sprint car and modified racing throughout the Midwest.

2004 has seen the Covenant Racing Team take another leap forward with its reverse sponsorship of American Family Radio. Covenant Racing Team actively solicits deserving racing teams to pre-designate a race for American Family Radio.

All of the proceeds of the pre-designated race go directly to American Family Radio to support the many ministry functions of AFR.

Race teams carry the Covenant Racing Team logo as a member of the Covenant Racing Team as well as the American Family Radio decal to signify their support of AFR.

Covenant Racing Team owner Doug Thompson stated, “The good Lord has blessed us with 353 feature wins, nine track championships, three Kansas State titles, two Nationals and lots of good friends. The Lord took a negative in my life and turned around the racing skills and organizational ability to a positive through the development of the Covenant Racing Team. Once I made the commitment to the Lord he has been absolutely, totally faithful to Covenant Racing Team and it has been one miracle after another.”

Connie Thompson stated, “It’s awesome to see the Lord’s hand at work with Covenant Racing Team. Doug and I have seen one miracle after another for Covenant Racing Team and we know the Lord has many more miracles in store for this operation.”

Be sure and stay in touch as the blessings are passed on we will share the vision with you.
