UARA Ready For Annual Rockingham Stop
At one point of the race Dillon Bassett, who captured the Rookie of the Year title, stood a chance at winning the championship as well.
Ty Dillon, grandson of famed NASCAR team owner Richard Childress, and 2008 UARA Rookie of the Year Darrell Wallace Jr. have also entered the UARA-STARS event at Rockingham. Dillon ran some events with UARA in 2010.
Wallace has become a regular competitor in the UARA events at Rockingham. He claimed a top five finish during the season finale in November and won the Holley Performer of the Race Award for gaining the most positions.
Wallace currently sits fifth in Truck Series points driving for Kyle Busch. Wallace will come to Rockingham after a second place qualifying run and a strong fifth place finish at Martinsville this past weekend. Dillon is currently eighth in the truck points.
Last year’s Most Improved Driver Cory Joyce will also be joining his fellow drivers at The Rock. Joyce has taken the first few events off to get ready for Rockingham.
While some drivers prepared for the event in shop, others hit the road and got more seat time. Devin Jones competed in his first Truck race this weekend at Martinsville, Ben Rhodes traveled to Sportsdome Speedway in Indiana for a Legends Car event and rookie David Garbo Jr. captured his first late model win at Hickory Motor Speedway during their weekly Saturday night racing.
