PARKER, Ariz. – Cameron Hayley of Calgary, Alberta, Canada has just signed to drive with the 2012 Championship Team of Gene Price Motorsports of Parker Ariz., in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West.

GPM drivers Dylan Kwasniewski and Greg Pursley recently finished the 2012 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West championship standings in first and second place, respectively.

“Everyone at Gene Price Motorsports is very excited to have Cameron Hayley join us for the 2013 season,” said car owner Gene Price. “He’s a very talented young driver and I’m personally looking forward to him winning some races and most importantly having fun. We are all excited and eager to start the 2013 season.”

Hayley will team with Pursley, the 2011 series champion.

“I’m really looking forward to working with young Cameron Hayley as my teammate for the 2013 season,” Pursley said. “I appreciate Cameron’s talent and enthusiasm and know he’s going to fit right in at GPM.”

“Going into the new year with Gene Price Motorsports is something that I am really looking forward to,” said Hayley. “Everything I have learned up to this point will help me succeed this year with the Gene Price championship team. We hope to be successful right out of the trailer. I’m very excited to be teamed up with Greg Pursley too; this will be a great year.”

Hayley, who is just 16 years old, will be entering his second full season in NASCAR. His first race in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West resulted in a second-place finish. Earlier this year, NASCAR named Hayley to its NASCAR Next9 program, nine drivers 21-and-under in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series who represent the next wave of young talent set to make an impact on the national series scene.

At the NASCAR Champions Award’s recently held in Charlotte, N.C., Hayley received the Driver Achievement Award for 2012 and the Featherlite Most Improved Driver Award. He finished second in the Sunoco Rookie of the Year standings and was seventh in the overall standings.
