Jared Irvan to Race in PASS Super Late Model Series

Pit Note #8

ERNIE IRVAN’S SON ANNOUNCE RACING PLANS – Former NASCAR driver Ernie Irvan announced Friday at Charlotte Motor Speedway that his son Jared would race fulltime next year in the PASS Super Late Model Series. Jared, 15, will race a Super Late Model car owned and prepared by the family. The team will have full sponsorship from Auramist, a misting fan company.

“We now have a reason to come to the race track,” said Ernie. “(Jared) learned a lot running the Summer Shootout (Legends Car series at Charlotte Motor Speedway) and that speaks a lot for itself. There have been a lot of great guys that run the Super Late Model series. We are kind of following in Ryan Blaney’s footsteps. And obviously, Kyle Busch ran that series a lot. Ross Kenseth, Matt’s son, he runs that series a lot. We are really excited about going down that path. We hope to move into the K&N Series in a year or two.”

Jared said he had learned a lot from his father’s career, but most of it wasn’t firsthand.

“I really learned the most about his career from watching videos,” Jared said. “I learned that miracles happen. I was only one when he quit racing, so I couldn’t be there in person, so I just had to learn everything from videos. I’m just trying to learn more about what I need to do to make it in racing.”

Jared started his racing career at four, driving quarter-midgets. As a teenager, Jared raced a Ford Focus, and he raced in the Summer Shootout and some Super Late Model events last year.

BUSCH GRABS POLE FOR DOLLAR GENERAL 300 -- Kyle Busch will start on the pole for Friday’s Dollar General 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway after piloting his No. 54 Monster Energy Toyota around the 1.5-mile speedway in 29.446 seconds (183.387 mph).

“I don’t know how we went so fast,” Busch said. “It was certainly a little bit slick out there. But our lap ended pretty well. I’m happy to be sitting on another pole here, but you‘ve got to win tonight. Starting up front is going to be exciting. We hope to lead a lot of laps and put ourselves in victory lane when it is all said and done.”

BUSCHES RAISE MONEY FOR ‘CHAMPIONS’ – Just after her husband clinched the pole for Friday night’s Dollar General 300, Samantha Busch stepped in front of a hospitality tent full of breast cancer patients and their families to give them a little bit of good news. And it didn’t have a thing to do with racing.

“I want you to know that your medical bills are covered,” Busch said, presenting a check for $80,000 as she wiped away tears.

One by one the breast cancer champions (the preferred term by the foundation) came up to hug Busch, pick up a bright pink bag of goodies, and share stories with the woman who spearheaded the fundraising effort that will help them fight for their lives.

“Breast cancer touches everybody; it’s somebody’s sister or wife or mother or aunt,” Busch said. “For us it’s a wonderful employee at KBM who’s a survivor. It’s wonderful to hear the stories and know that we’re making a difference in their lives.”

The Pretty In Pink Foundation exists to provide financial assistance to uninsured and underinsured breast cancer patients in North Carolina with quality, life-saving medical treatment regardless of their ability to pay. It was those qualities that drew the Busch family to this local organization.

“These 12 champions have come from Charlotte and right around here – they’re neighbors,” Busch said. “We knew we had to help them so that the only thing they had to focus on was getting better.

Kyle Busch couldn’t be at the presentation because of his on-track duties, but he made sure to mention the effort after his pole-winning run.

“Samantha has done a wonderful job with all of our Pretty In Pink Foundation people that are here,” Busch said. “We raised a lot of money for them this week. This is just the first part of it.”

NATIONWIDE INTRODUCES ANGLER OF THE YEAR TO NASCAR – NASCAR Nationwide Series Sponsor, Nationwide Insurance, brought a rookie to Friday’s race.

Aaron Martins has been named Angler of the Year for 2013, and he picked up Nationwide as a sponsor along the way.

“It’s a pretty big deal to have Nationwide come on board as a sponsor,” said Martins. “Especially to have someone from outside of the industry is pretty neat.”

Martins, who is from Birmingham, Ala., was excited for his first exposure to NASCAR.

“This is cool being here at Charlotte Motor Speedway. I haven’t had the chance to experience it all. This brings goose bumps to my arms. I can’t wait to see then run. It’s a pretty neat deal.”
