DYLAN K WINS AT GREENVILLE PICKENS SPEEDWAY / Sep.4.2013
Dylan Kwasniewski continues to add to his stellar season, picking up his fifth NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) win of the season and his fourth in the last six races.
After starting from the pole and leading two laps early, the team's strategy was to drop back in the running order early to conserve the tires for late in the race. Kwasniewski worked his No. 98 Rockstar Energy Drink/Royal Purple Chevy back up front to overtake the lead with just 33 circuits remaining in the Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 140. Kwasniewski didn't look back as he opened up a large lead and went on to take the checkered flag, crossing the finish line 2.650 seconds before the second-place finisher.
Following the victory, Kwasniewski has opened up a 40-point margin on his closest competitor in the Driver Points Standings with just four events remaining.
"Everybody on my Rockstar Energy Drink/Royal Purple team worked to give me a great car," said Kwasniewski. "We came in having a lot of confidence that we could win this race, we just needed to make sure we saved our tires for late in the race and that's what we did. I just can't thank the team enough for their hard work."
FOX Sports 1 will televise The Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 140 on Sunday, September 22 at 12 p.m. EDT. The NKNPSE has a few weeks off before returning to action again on Saturday, September 21 for the North American Power 100 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
