First Time In NASCAR History Three Rookies Took All Three National Division Events On The Same Weekend.
The race week of July 27 - August 1 was one for the ages. On the same weekend two weeks ago, twenty-three-year-old Chris Buescher and eighteen-year-old William Byron won the Sprint Cup and Truck Series races at Pocono Raceway, respectively.
Additionally, twenty-year-old Erik Jones captured the Xfinity Series race at Iowa Speedway.
Further, ‘Rookie of the Year’ contenders swept all five national and touring NASCAR Races run at three different tracks over the six days!
Wow, the average age of these winning NASCAR Drivers is eighteen point six (18.6). Chris Buescher is the elder at twenty-three.
Todd Gilliland is the K&N Pro Series Point Leader and won his race from pole last night.
Cayden Lapcevich, a third-generation racing driver from Grimsby, won the NASCAR Pinty’s Series race in Saskatoon. In so doing, he became - at 16 years of age - the youngest racer to score a win in Canada’s only national racing series.
