ROSEVILLE, CA- (10-12-
As the largest one day event of its type brings thousands of travelers into Placer County, it will also bring numerous talented drivers that will be behind the wheel as the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West brings its door to door NASCAR action to the tight 1/3 mile track at the Placer County Fairgrounds. Among the talent will be NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Michael Waltrip.
A two time Daytona 500 winner, Waltrip will be aboard a Bill McAnally Racing NAPA Toyota to race in this upcoming event that will benefit the Placer County Breast Cancer Endowment. Waltrip garnered victories at the world center of speed in 2001 and 2003 and is one of NASCAR's most colorful drivers. A native of Owensboro, Kentucky, Waltrip is not only known for his decorated racing resume behind the wheel. He is also a nationally known racing commentator, a published author and the co-owner of Michael Waltrip Racing which fields multiple drivers in the nationally known Sprint Cup Series including drivers such as Martin Truex Jr., Clint Boyer, Brian Vickers, Mark Martin and more.
The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West is home to the future stars of NASCAR. The highly competitive series is known for its superior level of competition as drivers compete for a regional championship from which many advance to the highest level of NASCAR competition. This series has garnered many of today's top NASCAR drivers including names like Kevin Harvick, Trevor Bayne, Clint Boyer and Martin Truex. Notably Kyle Larson, of Elk Grove, the 2012 K&N Pro Series East championship is already a top competitor in the NASCAR Nationwide Series with plans to graduate to the elite Sprint Cup next year.
This race series is filled with both young and veteran drivers, all of which are hungry for victory and will bring a great deal of fireworks to the All American Speedway that are even hotter than those which are launched during the opening ceremonies of this grand event.. Last year, an outstanding 31 NASCAR K&N Pro Series entries arrived in Roseville, all vying for a spot in the 24 car field.
In addition to the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, the October 12 event will feature a high dollar Late Model race in honor of the late Matt Camp. Camp was a popular driver at All American Speedway who lost his life in a boating accident last summer. In his honor, the Matt Camp 52/52 will be a prelude to Saturday's NASCAR race. This fall classic is expected to draw record entries with over $14,000 in purse money up for grabs and the honor of racing in Camp's memory. The door to door action on race day will all start with the exciting Legends of the Pacific kicking off the on track competition.
Throughout the day, the Placer County Fairgrounds will be home to various vendors, car shows and special attractions on the grounds making this more than just a Saturday night racing program. The action on the track will start as early as 11:30 a.m. with practice for the K&N West Series. Coors Light Pole Qualifying will begin at 5:30.
