Representing stock car racing is 17-year-old Dylan Hutchison, driver of the #5 Bay Bio Diesel/Johnnie Walker Performance Chevrolet. One of this year’s rookie contenders in the NASCAR K&N Pro West Series, this weekend we will find him competing on the “too tough to tame” 5/8-mile oval, Evergreen Speedway.
Quote from Hutchison: “I can't wait for Evergreen! I'm starting to get used to driving bigger tracks and beginning to like them a lot. After watching some videos I'm pretty confident of how I will drive this track and my crew chief John Krebs has a lot of experience there so he has a good idea of how to set up the car. As a team we are really prepared and excited for this race. We hope to start getting some more top-tens to get back into the Rookie of the Year battle as well!”
And representing open-wheel we find 16-year-old Trey Starks, a third-generation driver, as the youngest driver competing in this weekend’s World of Outlaws $50,000 to-win Kings Royal at Eldora.
Quote from Starks: “It’s pretty exciting to know that I am going to an event like the Kings Royal. In sprint car racing everything has been around since before I was born or is two times older than me. There are some guys out here that were racing 20 years before I was born. On the scale of things, you try to not think about that though or let it psyche you out. If we can run like we did last time at Eldora and like we did at Knoxville with the Outlaws, that will make it a good weekend. We had the right mindset going in, and didn’t think of it as our first time at those tracks. We just kind of dove in and went after it and things worked pretty well. We feel pretty good going into this weekend and have a good game plan.”
