Haley Moody Wins NASCAR’S Diverse Driver Award
Kinston, NC – The accomplishments keep pouring in for the 19-year-old Limited Late Model driver. Just a few short months ago Moody was crowned track champion in Southern National Motorsports Park Limited Late Model division. Now she has something else to add to her already growing resume as she has been chosen to receive the 2015 NASCAR Diverse Driver Award. Haley will be accepting this award down at Daytona International Speedway later on this month at the 8th Annual NASCAR Diversity Awards Luncheon.
This award is to recognize her on and off track performance as well as her contributions to encourage participation in NASCAR by other woman as well. This award does not come lightly as the 2014 winner is Daniel Suarez, who recently just signed with Joe Gibbs racing to run full-time in the Xfinity series come 2015. Just goes to show that no matter what level of competition you have to leave it all on the track because you never know who might be watching.
Moody is coming off a record-setting season for her self where she earned 16 Top 5’s – 23 Top 10’s – 3 victories all coming from Southern National – in her rookie season mind you! When talking with Haley this afternoon she expressed her excitement for being chosen for this award telling us that she knows this means a lot and she knows this is a big thing for her. Going forward into 2015 Moody told us she is looking forward to travel a little bit more, as well as looking to find herself in victory lane.
