WORLD SERIES WRAP - YOUNG NASCAR Stars

YOUNG NASCAR STARS SHINE IN 49TH WORLD SERIES AT NEW SMYRNA SPEEDWAY

NASCAR’s future was on full display at New Smyrna Speedway’s 49th Annual World
Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing. The nine-night event ran at the .48-mile
high-banked NASCAR Whelen All-American Series track in conjunction with the
2015 Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway.

Christopher Bell, 20, won his first NASCAR Super Late Model race on Saturday
night in the Bruce Gowland Memorial 100 finale. The Norman, OK driver won 24
times last year in open-wheel Midget competition plus scored a victory on the
tough World of Outlaws Sprint Car circuit. Bell raced three times at the
World Series for Kyle Busch Motorsports. Super Late Model points runner-up
Harrison Burton, 14, picked up a pair of wins on the week. They were the
first two NASCAR Super Late Model wins for the son of former NASCAR Sprint Cup
Series driver Jeff Burton. Californian Zane Smith, 15, claimed the World
Series title for the Super Late Model Division on the strength of one win and
an average finish of 5.8 over the seven races he entered. In addition, NASCAR
K&N Pro Series East driver David Garbo Jr., 18, had a win and 17-year-old
Wisconsin native Natalie Decker, who will run a Late Model for NASCAR Drive
for Diversity and Rev Racing this year, had four top-ten finishes.

Indiana’s Dalton Armstrong, 20, won the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series
Division II Pro Late Model title. Armstrong, a former USAC Midget Series
driver, is the younger brother of NASCAR XFINITY Series driver Dakoda
Armstrong. NASCAR Next driver and 2013 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion
Ryan Preece, 24, won the World Series title for the Tour-Type Modifieds.
Preece had four wins, including the extra-distance finale, the Richie Evans
Memorial 100 on Friday.

The start of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series point season at New Smyrna
Speedway begins on Saturday night, March 14th with an open practice slated for
all classes the preceding Saturday, March 7th.
