Posse Standout Tosses Hat Into All Star Ring for 2008 Rookie of the Year Run
CAMARGO, IL (10-10-07) As the O'Reilly All Star Circuit of Champions begin to plan and schedule races for the 2008 campaign the race teams also begin to formulate their plans for the next racing season. This is the time of year when the same question always arises: "Who will be running for Rookie of the Year next season?" The first contender for the $10,000 prize has thrown his hat into the ring. Central Pennsylvania's newest standout, Kevin Nouse, will leave Posse soil to travel with the All Stars full time next season. Kevin is a welcome addition to an already tough group of All Star drivers who he will challenge for the $50,000 All Star Points Championship.
Kevin is a full time racer from Mechanicsburg, PA and will pilot the BG Motorsports #12 as he did in 2007. This was his first full season in a 410 sprint car and he was able to pick up two wins at Williams Grove and three wins at Port Royal against stiff Posse competition. Kevin has 59 career open cockpit A-Main wins at 14 different speedways in his sprint car career which began in 1994. Kevin actually began racing in the mid-80's in snowmobiles and micro sprints before moving up to Super Sportsman, 358 Sprints, and then recently 410 Sprints.
Kevin just missed winning the Port Royal track championship in 2007 by only 35 points. He missed one race to take care of a sick family member and that's all it took for veteran Keith Kauffman to nab the championship trophy. Kevin was disappointed, but said he would do the same thing over again if he had to as some things are more important than racing.
Kevin is looking forward to getting out on the road with the All Stars in February. "I think it will make me a better driver," said Nouse. "The All Stars are a good group and I look forward to racing on different tracks and learning different setups. The All Stars are a tight knit group and have fun on and off the track. That's one of the things that drew me to this series."
Kevin will begin his Rookie of the Year run in Florida in February as the All Stars kick off the 2008 racing season. Look for more announcements regarding the 2008 schedule and who will compete with Kevin for the $10,000 Rookie prize in the near future. The 2007 All Star awards banquet will be held in January and details will be released on that soon as well.
