Dyne To Drive For Sunrise Ford

MALIBU, Calif. - Twenty-year-old Austin Dyne has signed with owner Bob Bruncati's Sunrise Ford Racing team to contest the 2012 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West Championship.

Dyne - whose background includes extensive experience in go-karts, Skip Barber Formula cars, S2, and a season of Late Models in 2011 - will make his K&N debut at the series April 14 round at Havasu 95 Speedway in Lake Havasu City, Ariz.

Austin, son of apparel company William Rast CEO Colin Dyne, will carry the William Rast livery the late Dan Wheldon drove to victory at last year's Indy 500.

"It's an honor for me carry the same livery Dan drove to the win at Indy, and to be able to compete at this level in the sport he so loved," said Dyne.

Bruncati and the Sunrise Ford Racing team won the 2009 West Championship with driver Jason Bowles, and is looking forward to working with Austin this season.

"I really enjoy taking a young driver like Austin and teaching him what it takes to win a championship," said Bruncati.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series is made up of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and the K&N Pro Series West. This division represents NASCAR’s top regional touring series, where competitors refine their skills before making the jump to one of NASCAR’s three national series.
