Las Vegas Car & Truck Moves Kayli Barker Racing To Lucas Oil Modifieds
Las Vegas Car & Truck to Sponsor Kayli Barker Racing for the Lucas Oil Modifeds Military and Veterans Appreciation Night at the Las Vegas Bullring.
By: Kayli Barker Racing
Las Vegas Car & Truck who announced their sponsorship for Kayli Barker Racing in April 2016 is eager to support her continued success and has committed to support her run in the Lucas Oil Modified Annual Military and Veterans Appreciation Night.
Barker made her debut run in the Modifieds in November of 2015 at the Bullring and has won nearly 50 main events and a Super Stock Championship on the track. In addition to running the Modified race, she'll also run in the Super Late Model main on the same evening and is currently the only female driver on the roster for the Modifieds for the 75 lap main event on May 21, 2016.
"I'm looking forward to the challenge of running the two very different cars that night. The modified is about 350 pounds lighter than "Monster" my Super Late Model and also has a smaller harder tire which limits the amount of usable horsepower. The real challenge is good car control and tire management on my part, but I am confident and eager to get back in the Modified" ~Kayli Barker
With aspirations of racing in the NASCAR® Truck Series this eighteen year old female driver has already celebrated many milestones in her career, including being the 1st female driver to win three track championships in Las Vegas history and being the youngest female driver to win a NASCAR® Whelen All-American series race. In addition to her accomplishments on the track, Barker has been awarded the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation Leadership Award and NASCAR® UNOH Youth Achievement Award.
"Kayli's championship performance and proven success as a Late Model Series Driver has shown that she is ready to step up to the Modifieds and we're pleased to be able to provide that opportunity for her. Her aspirations include joining the ranks of NASCAR®'s Truck Series and moving her to the Modifieds is a vertical step in helping her achieve that goal. Kayli is a positive role model for young racers alike and is an inspiration for all young adults who desire to win and conquer in life. One of our company's core values is supporting our local Las Vegas community and people like Kayli that make a positive impression on our valley's youth. As a Christian faith based business we're proud to support that Kayli's Christian faith is a strong moral compass throughout her life."~ Dan Walker, Principal Owner, Las Vegas Car & Truck
Currently a freshman at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, Kayli Barker made her NASCAR® Whelen Series debut in 2012 and brings a strong resume to the 2016 season. Barker will be racing her Dana Stahl, 2014 Chevy SS NASCAR Super Late Model for the 2016 season and is hopeful for a continued slot on the Lucas Oil Modified H-Town Racing Roster for the remainder of the 2016 Lucas Oil Modified season.
