Scotland sprint car driver gearing up for NASCAR truck racing debut

Local NewsScotland sprint car driver gearing up for NASCAR truck racing debut

Scotland sprint car driver Dylan Westbrook is preparing to make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) debut in the Clean Harbors 150 at Knoxville Raceway on Saturday, June 18.

“I’ve been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to race sprint cars all over the United States and Canada, and to make my NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut at the track most famous for Sprint Car racing really brings everything full-circle,” Westbrook said in a media release.

The 23-year-old jumped into a 360-winged sprint car just seven years ago and has been racing ever since. He has captured 64 wins on dirt tracks all across the United States and Canada, with three wins in the ultra-competitive Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series (ASCS).

Westbrook is a three-time Ohsweken Speedway track champion (2015, 2016, 2019) and also holds one win at the historic Knoxville Raceway during the 360 sprint car competition in June 2021.

He is currently competing full-time on the Lucas Oil ASCS tour sitting second in the series point standings with one win in 2022 driving for Hill’s Racing team.

“This year, racing for Hill’s Racing, we have been trying to run as many weekly races at Knoxville when there isn’t a Lucas Oil ASCS Tour event,” Westbrook said. “We’ve been trying to log some extra laps to learn as much as we can in preparation for the famed 360 and 410 Knoxville Nationals in August. I am hoping some of the things I have learned over the years will allow me to have an edge over the NCWTS regulars and earn a respectable finish.”

Westbrook will join Jordan Anderson Racing Bommarito Autosport for the event, driving the team’s number three Chevrolet Silverado.

“Dylan has proven he is a very talented driver behind the wheel of a sprint car, with the amount of competition at some of these national 360 races it is an impressive feat in its own right to park it in victory lane,” said Jordan Anderson, President of Jordan Anderson Racing Bommarito Autosport. “The ability for drivers of a dirt racing background to quickly adapt to the ever-changing track conditions Knoxville Raceway will offer over the course of the race will speed up the learning curve for Dylan when he straps behind the wheel of the truck for the first time. His experience and knowledge at the Knoxville Raceway will make him a great addition to the team.”

Qualifying heat races will be broadcast LIVE on Fox Sports 1 and the Fox Sports App at 7:00 PM EST, while the Clean Harbors 150 presented by Premier Chevy Dealers can be seen at 9:00 PM EST. The entire event will also be broadcast on the Motor Racing Network and on SIRIUS/XM NASCAR radio Channel 90.
