What can you say about this year’s racing except “exciting”?

The Nationwide series has seen 4 different drivers win over 5 races and featured Kyle Larson and Kyle Busch battling for the win at California with Larson coming out on top for his first Nationwide win.

The Sprint Cup series has seen 5 different winners across 5 races with a lot of factors going in to make the races as unpredictable as, well, the weather. Or tires.

Get to Know Cole Witt of Swan Racing

colewhittheadAs driver of the Swan Racing 26 car, native Californian Cole Witt is one of 8 drivers competing for the 2014 Sprint Cup Rookie of the Year. In addition to that, he is just trying to learn what he can about Sprint Cup racing and competing against some of the best drivers in the world week in and week out. Witt is teamed up with crew chief Randy Cox and has a teammate in Parker Kligerman, another rookie, at Swan Racing this year.

I recently had a chance to ask Witt a few questions about his young Sprint Cup career and just what he has found surprising so far.
