Dylan Kwasniewski finding his stride early on NASCAR West Series
When the season started, he was only 15 years old. The age limit to compete in NASCAR touring events was 16. But that changed to 15 after the West Series season opener at Phoenix International Raceway.
Kwasniewski, a driver from Las Vegas, had to wait until the second West Series race to make his debut. He started his West Series career with a bang, the good kind, and posted a fourth-place finish in his first race.
Kwansnieski said he isn't happy with top fives though. He wants to win every race. He's with the team, Gene Price Motorsports, that has won four of the first six West Series races with Greg Pursley as driver.
Kwasniewski will be at Toyota Speedway at Irwindale this weekend looking for his first West Series win.
Go to the K&N website for more on Kwasniewski and his being selected as one of the NASCAR Next 9.
