Ken Maler Jr. moves up to NASCAR Super Trucks at Irwindale
Ken Maler Jr., a driver from Acton, has moved from the Legend Cars to the NASCAR Super Trucks. Maler posted two top-10 finishes and was 17th in the Legend Cars standings last year.
He is driving the Super Truck that Jon Campbell raced at Irwindale and Mesa Marin in Bakersfield. Maler has had the truck for a few years, but opted to race go-karts and Legend Cars while he and his dad prepared the truck to return the track.
Maler qualified 10th and finished sixth for the first Super Trucks race of the season. He was awarded the hard charger for the race, making up the most spots.
