DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Jan. 11, 2015) – The NASCAR K&N Pro Series has become the preeminent development proving ground for the sport’s future stars.
The 27 races on the 2016 schedule – from New England to Southern California, and from Washington to Florida – provides a comprehensive slate of venues and events designed to test drivers and showcase the best and brightest for NASCAR fans.
The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and West schedules, announced today, comprise of 14 points races for each championship. It is highlighted by the annual meeting in the Heartland for the combination race at Iowa Speedway on July 29.
Both calendars include some of the best short tracks in the United States, as well as several companion events with NASCAR’s three national series, and three road-course races in each series.
In addition to returns to iconic staples of the East and West, both schedules feature some exciting new events for 2016: New Jersey Motorsports Park, Alabama’s Mobile International Speedway and Virginia’s Dominion Raceway in the East, and West’s first trip to California’s Orange Show Speedway in more than 30 years.
For the last couple years right as summer is about to officially get underway we have a few special guest come into town to visit a certain little play ground! That playground is Langley Speedway, and those special guest are the young, up and coming stars in the K&N Pro Series East series. 22 drivers were in town for the Visit Hampton VA 175 trying to knock Ben Rhodes off of his thrown. This year, with help from one of my sponsors, we were able to sit down with the driver of the #4 Rev Racing machine Sergio Pena.
Right off the bat I would like to thank Sergio for taking some time out of his day to chat with us, share some information about him and also learn a few little fun facts that some media outlets may not have time to dive into. Overall I loved the interview, I was a tad bit nervous as this was my first in person interview with someone in a traveling series! Sergio was great though, very open to answer any question! Put some thought into it and just didn’t give cookie cutter answers! He invited us back to his hauler so we could have some quite (hence the name of the interview). Just an overall great guy who truly loves to race!
Hope everyone enjoys our interview and I highly recommend following him on his various social media outlets and you can find links to those bellow!
