The UARA congratulates Brandon Mc Reynolds and Brennan Poole on their great showing at Daytona in the ARCA race last Saturday. Poole came from the 33rd starting position where he was moved to after post qualifying tech to finish 7th. McReynolds turned a many a head with his fantastic run. McReynolds led 64 consecutive laps, was heading for the checker coming out of turn four for the win when he ran out of gas. The dissappointment was surely there but his talent definitely was out there for all to see in a finish that will be well remembered by many fans and his fellow racers.
Several past UARA drivers will be working the track this coming week for the Camping World Truck Series. We wish them all the best of luck. 2008 UARA Champion Jake Crum will be there to show the talent that won him the UARA championship. Clay Greenfield who ran two full seasons with the UARA in 2007 and 2008 will be returning to the truck series. Greenfield's truck will have a photo on the hood helping to spreading awareness for childhood cancer. John King who has signed with Red Horse Racing for 2012 will be running for Rookie of the Year in the truck series. We wish them all the best for a good safe race.
Fifteen year old Brandon Jones is another newcomer to the UARA for 2012. Jones from Atlanta, GA will be in contention for the 2012 UARA Rookie of the Year title. Jones has teamed up with veteran racer Butch Miller as his crew chief in a Eddie Sharp Racing Chevrolet. Jones is the reigning Pro Truck Champion at Lanier Speedway and Gresham Motor Sports Park. In 2010 Jones had 6 wins and 15 top fives finishes out of seventeen races in the truck division. Miller said "Brandon is a talented young driver, and I'm very honored and excited to be able to play a part in developing his career."
