4-16-12 HUTCHISON FINISHES 12TH IN K&N WEST DEBUT AT HAVASU 95 SPEEDWAY

SACRAMENTO, CA– 17 year-old NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West rookie Dylan Hutchison put together a strong points day at Havasu 95 Speedway on Saturday night, finishing 12th in the "Toyota / NAPA Auto Parts 150" on the quarter-mile asphalt bullring in Arizona. With the 12th place finish, Hutchison is 12th in series points and second in the Sunoco Rookie of the Year award standings after two races.

Driving the #5 Johnnie Walker Performance / Bay Bio Diesel Chevrolet for Jack Sellers Racing and car owner Charlie Silva, Hutchison qualified in the 14th position with a 15.764 second lap around the speedway. The race track had been sealed since Hutchison tested but he was still able to lean on his laps around the speedway for a good qualifying effort.

Hutchison ran strong against the 22 car field, avoiding several incidents and driving into the top-ten at one point in the race. The Del Campo High School student managed to stay on the lead lap on the tight facility and wound up finishing 12th in just his third NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West start.

"The car was getting a little tight during the race," Hutchison said. "With as many cars that came out beat up and laps down, we are happy that we finished on the lead lap with minimal body damage."

The 12th place finish was a testament to the setup that John Krebs put underneath Hutchison.

"I really want to thank my whole crew for their hard work in getting the car set up," Hutchison said. "With it being a new track we didn't know what to expect during the race."

The 2011 All American Speedway NASCAR Late Model Rookie of the Year will now look forward to Saturday April 28, when the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West hits the Miller Motorsports Park road course in Tooele, UT. The event will mark the youngsters first start on a road course.

Race fans can watch the "Toyota / NAPA Auto Parts 150" from Havasu 95 Speedway on SPEED, airing Thursday May 10 at 12 p.m. Pacific Time.
