12-7-12 HUTCHISON JOINS KLEEN BLAST MOTORSPORTS FOR 25 HOURS AT
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
Hutchison carries sponsorship from MakeMyPayments.org and

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.
