The Hunter Index for June has Keith Rocco at the top of the rankings for the drivers in the NASCAR development series across the nation, Canada and Mexico.
Rocco, a NASCAR modified driver from Connecticut, has 16 wins in 28 starts at Thompson International Speedway, Stafford Motor Speedway and Waterford Speedbowl. In June, he won six races in 10 starts.
He received five of the six first-place votes. The other first place vote went to Andrew Ranger.
Again, I was the lone dissenter in the Hunter Index voting for the top driver. Ranger won the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West race at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma and the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race at Lime Rock Park in Connecticut.
On the same day as the Lime Rock Park race, Ranger flew to Quebec, Canada, and finished ninth in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series race.
Eric Holmes, the leader in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West standings, came in fifth in my rankings. Auggie Vidovich, the winner of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West race at Toyota Speedway at Irwindale, was eighth in my rankings.
