UARA Champ and Rookie of the Year to be at Piedmont Racing Expo

Raleigh, NC. --

PRESS RELEASE- RELEASE IMMEDIATELY
January 15, 2009

UARA Champ and Rookie of the Year to be at Piedmont Racing Expo

Raleigh, NC 

 

 For Immediate Release:January 15, 2009

UARA (United Auto Racing Association)  2008 Champion Jake Crum and 2008 Rookie of the Year, Darrell Wallace Jr., will be among racers making appearances at the Piedmont Racing Expo at the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, Friday and Saturday, January 16-17.
Crum who had a 2008 season filled with determination and hard work found himself clinching the title at the final event at Concord Motorsport Park in October by a mere 14 points over Alex Yontz. Claiming the Championship will also put Crum in the record books as the youngest UARA champion. Danny O’Quinn was four months older than Crum when he won in 2002.

The UARA has had the honor of watching Crum mature from a mere 14-year-old late model stock rookie to the Champion that he has become. Crum has developed skill as a driver to be respected. His personality offers a big smile and kindness of heart to all who encounter him.


Darrell Wallace, Jr. received his glory being crowned the Melling Select Rookie of the Year. Wallace had plenty of competition during the season with the most serious threat being that of Brandon McReynolds. Wallace showed maturity and a driving ability that far exceeds his youth. At 15 years old Wallace is the youngest rookie champion to date for the UARA.

With the talent this young man has, he could possibly uproot Crum as the youngest Champion with a title win in 2009.   Expo Promoter Phillip Walker praised both of these young men, “I’ve watched both Jake and Darrell race this season and have been really impressed.   Both are hard charging, yet drive like seasoned veterans.”  “I think Darrell Wallace Jr. is going to be the “Tiger Woods” of short track racing and at 15 years old, has a great future ahead of him in racing!”.

Wallace and McReynolds both had victories in their rookie season.  Both will have their race cars on display at the 23rd Annual Piedmont Racing Expo held each January in Raleigh.  Almost 100 booth spaces will be filled in the Trade Show while over 1000 lots of all types of racing parts and engines will be auctioned at the two day event.
Tradeshow hours are 1-9pm on Friday and 8am-5pm on Saturday.  The auction starts at 3pm on Friday and 9am on Saturday.  General admission is $10 with ladies and children under 14 free.
