4-10-12 HAVASU 95
SPEEDWAY UP NEXT FOR WEST ROOKIE DYLAN HUTCHISON
SACRAMENTO, CA– 17 year-old Dylan Hutchison continues his 2012
NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West Rookie of the Year campaign on Saturday
night, when the series will make its debut at Havasu 95 Speedway in
Arizona for the "TOYOTA/NAPA 150". Hutchison drives the #5 Johnnie
Walker Performance / Bay Bio Diesel Chevrolet for Jack Sellers
Racing and car owner Charlie Silva.
Hutchison is coming to Havasu on the heels of a 23rd place finish in
his Phoenix International Speedway debut last month and the rookie
is looking forward to getting back to the short tracks like Havasu
95 Speedway. Havasu is listed as a quarter-mile speedway but is
similar in size to the All American Speedway where Hutchison won the
2011 NASCAR Late Model Rookie of the Year.
"I hope to improve in a lot of ways," Hutchison said. "Everything
from better communications with my crew chief about how the car is
handling to being more patient. If we can come out of this race with
a clean car and a decent finish I'll be happy!"
The Jack Sellers Racing team tested at the tight confines of Havasu
last month to get familiar with the race track. A gritty surface and
narrow racing groove will make for an interesting 150 lap event.
"Our series has never raced there so just being on the track should
give us an advantage to those who haven't seen it," Hutchison said.
"I have raced a lot of short tracks before so I'm pretty confident."
On Wednesday, Hutchison took a break from his studies at Del Campo
High School to make an appearance at the Eibach Springs World
Headquarters in Corona, Calif. Hutchison had the opportunity to tour
the facility and see how racing springs are made.
Racing action on Saturday at Havasu 95 Speedway will see practices
at 12:30 and 1:45 p.m., qualifying at 5 p.m., and the "TOYOTA/NAPA
150" scheduled to start at 8:30 p.m. Race fans can follow Dylan's
progress at hometracks.nascar.com where the series is providing
lap-by-lap updates throughout the day.
