NASCAR Whelen All-American Series News
Malone Making Big Gains In NASCAR WHELEN All-American Series

Daytona Beach, Fla. --

(June 12, 2007) – Kerry Malone decided to scale back his racing endeavors last year. In his free time, he figured he’d join his daughter – a competitive skier – in visiting the slopes in Chile and New Zealand.

Instead, he spent all his time working.

So Malone made the choice to return to full-time racing this season, and the results have proven it to be a good decision. He picked up his first win of the year last Thursday at Thompson (Conn.) International Speedway. Despite a 12th-place the next night at Stafford (Conn.) Motor Speedway, Malone surged up to sixth in the national standings.

After more than 25 years of racing, though, the 47-year-old from Needham, Mass., isn’t getting too hung up on his progress just yet.

“We don’t think too much about points this time of year,” said Malone, who is fourth in points in the Sunoco Modified division at Thompson (5/8-mile) and second in the SK Modified division at Stafford (1/2-mile). “You just let the finishes take care of themselves. We just want to keep finishing up front and hope for the best.”

Malone’s 388 points allowed him to jump up from 11th last week. He was 20th the week before and 56th the first week.

Rodney Cook earned his second win of the season at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, N.C., to further cement his overall points lead. Cook leads the nation with 444 points. Guy Jubinville and Jean Francois Bouvrette, both of Autodrome St. Eustache in Quebec, occupy second and third, respectively, with 420 and 404 points.

Jamey Caudill of Southern National Raceway Park in Kenly, N.C., is fourth with 398 points, followed by Andy Loden of Hickory Motor Speedway in Newton, N.C., with 390.

Malone’s team knows about winning championships. His teammate at Thompson is Woody Pitkat, who won the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Division IV championship last season. Pitkat is currently 13th in the nation.

And Malone was ready to get back in the car full-time after last season’s hiatus. The middle of Malone’s three children, 19-year-old daughter Hailey, was training with the U.S. Development ski team. Kerry Malone, who estimates he goes skiing about a 100 times a year, figured he’d use his free time to travel with her. It didn’t quite work out as planned.

“I took that time off last summer to do some other things,” Malone said. “She went all over the world. I didn’t do anything expect work. … I figured I’d might as well race.”

He’s replaced the rush of going downhill with the adrenaline of a race night.

“In a (Modified) race, it’s kind of like running a high-speed video game,” Malone said. “You’ve got 40 laps to do whatever you can to get it done.”

Entering its 26th season – and the first in a long-term partnership with Connecticut-based Whelen Engineering – the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series features the best in short track racing across North America. The new point system for 2007, which in addition to crowning a national champion, will honor state and track champions and rank the top-500 drivers.

Under the simplified point structure, the race winner will receive two points for every car in the event up to 25 cars. Second place will receive two fewer points, and so-on through the field. For example, if there are 25 cars, the winner receives 50 points, second gets 48 and third 46. If there are 15 cars, the winner receives 30 points, second gets 28 and third 26.

Competitors will count their 18 highest point finishes through Sept. 30. The national champion will earn a reserved spot in the 2007 NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown at Irwindale (Calif.) Speedway in October.
