Faison takes second place at Old Dominion Speedway

--

SEAFORD, De. – C.J. Faison made an impressive return to the track, taking second place in a 75-lap Late Model feature last Saturday at Old Dominion Speedway, in Manassas, Va.

The finish signaled huge strides of improvement for the 16-year-old Seaford, DE, resident, who was competing in only the second NASCAR Whelen All-American Series race of his career. Faison made his debut five weeks ago, but has his race cut short thanks to a wreck in Lap 25.

But the rookie had a much different outcome in his return to action.

Faison – a rising junior enrolled in the distanced learning program at Bradenton Preparatory Academy in Bradenton, Fla. -- qualified fourth and quickly moved up to third, and then second place where he and leader Davey Callihan battled with a half-track lead.

Faison and his No. 39 Delaware Auto Exchange Chevy Impala took the lead in the 52nd lap and he maintained that position for 14 laps.

“The feeling of when I was leading the race was something that will never be taken away from me, and that I’ll remember until the day I die,” said Faison, who in his debut five weeks ago had wrecked in the 25th lap. “It was just a great feeling. Hopefully there will be more feelings like that.”

Callihan overtook Faison in lap 66 and never relinquished his lead and finished .726 seconds ahead of Faison for the victory.

“I was a little disappointed,” Faison said. “I could’ve definitely held him off and won it, but I knew he would’ve pressured me, and I didn’t want to risk wrecking for a second straight race. I knew his car was faster to begin with and knew I had a solid second-place car, so I let him by and followed him and tried to earn his respect and learn some things about his line and study how he raced.

“Rather than risking tearing up the car again, I figured I would rather second place and earn [Callihan]’s respect and the respect of the fans and NASCAR officials,” Faison added. “Callihan came to me afterwards and said he appreciated me racing him clean and that he’d be sure to return the favor in the future.”

Faison was warmly received by the fans following the race and drew encouragement from their enthusiasm.

“It was exciting for them, but it was just as exciting for me to know my fans have such faith and confidence in me, that I can be something special,” Faison said. “It was humbling, but also was a big confidence booster.”

Faison aims to build on this past weekend’s showing when he returns to Old Dominion Speedway on Saturday.

“Next race we have a chance to win,” Faison said. “We learned a lot about the No. 39 Delaware Auto Exchange Chevy Impala, and we have only a few things to do to her. After this week, I’m just ready to take it to another level.”
