12-7-12 HUTCHISON JOINS KLEEN BLAST MOTORSPORTS FOR 25 HOURS AT THUNDERHILL

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA– With the 2012 NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West campaign in the books, Dylan Hutchison has teamed up with Tim Spurgeon and Kleet Blast Abrasives Warehouse to compete in the 25 Hours of Thunderhill. Saturday and Sunday's 25 hour event in Willows, CA is the longest road race in North America and is celebrating its tenth season this year.

The car Hutchison will pilot is a former Southwest Tour chassis and engine with a dark blue 2012 Chevrolet Camaro Late Model body. The team competes in the top level ES division among a field of more than 70 entries from around the world.

With over 600 horsepower in a 2850 pound machine, Spuregon's squad successfully competes against several $200,000 Porsche GT3 Cup factory cars. Besides Spurgeon and Hutchison, other team drivers include Steve Johnson, Jim Inglebright, and Mike David. Inglebright is one of the most accomplished Southwest Tour and K&N Pro Series drivers on road courses which should make him a great mentor for the young Hutchison.

Hutchison carries sponsorship from MakeMyPayments.org and EcholsRVRepair.com The sponsors have provided RV accommodations for the team as they stay throughout the weekend for the grueling event.

Hutchison, 18, recently completed a rookie season in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West that included a top-ten finish at the Brainerd International Raceway road course in Minnesota. He hopes to translate that experience to the 25 Hours at Thunderhill.

"This race should be a good learning experience both in the hours of road course experience and also night racing experience," Hutchison said. "I have never raced at Thunderhill so driving a new track will also be a lot of fun. Overall I hope we can finish really well in our class and I am well prepared!"

Unique aspects of this event include multiple different classes of cars competing and racing at night. Throughout the night stints, the Kleen Blast Camaro can make hundreds of passes per hour as it works through slower traffic. The entry can run up to two hours on 30 gallons of fuel and most drivers do a double-stint, meaning four hours straight behind the wheel.

The goal when competing in a 25 Hour event is to run the car at 80% and just make laps to get the finish. The team holds the record for most miles in a Late Model at this race and completed a 21 hour run over nearly 1800 miles in the past.

Hutchison is participating in Friday's practice sessions in preparation for the 11 a.m. green flag start on Saturday morning.

Race fans can follow Saturday and Sunday's action live on www.NASA25Hour.com with live scoring and audio coverage expected.
