VIDEO: Scenes From The Rock

For K&N Pro Series East from Rockingham

November 7, 2012 - 2:30pm

Throughout the season, NASCAR Home Tracks will be featuring a video recap of select events on the Wednesday following race weekend.

Scenes from The Rock is from the NASCAR Pro Series East finale from Rockingham (N.C.) Speedway.

The 2012 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East championship came down to the last lap of the season and when the smoke cleared at Rockingham Speedway, rookie Kyle Larson won his first NASCAR title. Tyler Reddick, 16, earned a victory in the Classic 3 Championship presented by RCR Racing Museum in a wild finish.

Reddick, who was making his series debut, got a run on race leader – and championship contender – Brett Moffitt coming out of Turn 2 toward the checkered flag. Moffitt came up on Reddick, made contact, and went spinning onto the grass. Reddick then came around in the No. 98 Broken Bow Records Dodge to take the yellow and checkered flags.

A sixth-place finish by Larson in the No. 6 Toyota Racing Development Toyota was enough to give him the title by 15 points over Corey LaJoie. It marks the first NASCAR touring championship for Rev Racing and NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity initiative.
