CUMMING, Ga. – After opening a number of eyes in his first NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race at Greenville (S.C.) Pickens Speedway last April, 16-year-old Dylan Murry will now tackle the always challenging Watkins Glen International road course on Friday, August 4, in the Bully Hill Vineyards 100.
Murry, who finished sixth at Greenville Pickens Speedway, will be carrying a new sponsor – Turtle Wax – on his Rette Jones Racing Ford Fusion when he takes to “The Glen” for his second series start.
“I’m excited to get up to Watkins Glen,” said Murry, who is the son of champion road racer David Murry. “I can’t thank Turtle Wax enough for coming on board as a sponsor. Case It, Simcraft, Tupelo Honey and Bokampers have also been a tremendous help in getting this race together for us. Without them, this would not be possible.”
In his K&N Pro Series East debut, Murry qualified 16th, but ended up as the top finishing rookie. He picked up the Sunoco Rookie of the Race award, Coca-Cola Move of the Race award and the Brembo Brake Through Challenge award.
Because of his impressive performance at Greenville Pickens Speedway, Brett Bodine, head of NASCAR’s Driver Development Committee, approved him to race at Watkins Glen.
“The next two weeks can’t go fast enough for me,” said the Cumming, Ga. resident. “For sure, it’s going to be another challenge, but I feel like I’m quite prepared. My dad has certainly been around Watkins Glen a number of times during his driving career so he can provide some terrific coaching.”
In 1995, driving for ARCA series veteran Mark Thompson, David Murry qualified for the then NASCAR Winston Cup Series race at Watkins Glen.
“Watkins Glen is a high speed, technical road course,” said David Murry. “But, I have all the confidence in the world that Dylan will be competitive and perform well.”
