FINALIST: Bubar Leads The Way

By Paul Schaefer, NASCAR

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — From a very young age, Corey Bubar spent summertime weekend nights at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway. He was just two when his dad, Dan Bubar, won the track’s Sport Series division championship in 1994.

In 2004, Bubar began his racing career.

Seven years later, the 19-year-old from Windham, Maine, has spent his summer in a see-saw point race for his first Sport Series Division championship at the famed .333-mile paved oval in Scarborough, Maine.

By Jason Christley, NASCAR

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Travis Braden expected some success when he took over the driver’s seat for Gary Estes’ Late Model. But the consistency in which the 17-year-old from Wheeling, W.Va., has reached Victory Lane has caused a perpetual re-evaluation of the team’s goals.
