In 2009, 19-year-old Parker Kligerman of Stamford, CT was in the midst of one of the most memorable ARCA Menards Series championship battles. While race fans may recall the Stamford, Connecticut native’s mind-boggling consistency, Kligerman’s 2009 championship run seemed like a story from a Hollywood film. Racing for Cunningham Motorsports’ No. 77 Dodge entry, Kligerman and his team were like ARCA’s version of the 1967 Boston Red Sox with an improbable title run.
Ty Gibbs turned in a historic NASCAR Xfinity Series debut Saturday night, the 18-year-old won in his first series start – holding off reigning champion Austin Cindric on the Daytona International Speedway Road Course in the Super Start 188 At DAYTONA Presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts.
In 2020, the NASCAR Xfinity Series ran on four road courses. They started the season at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course and then went to Road America, the Daytona Road Course and closed out at the Charlotte ROVAL. Austin Cindric, last week’s winner, also won this race last season.
