Avoids Wreck To Take K&N Pro East Checkers At New Hampshire
LOUDON, N.H. — Third-place was the perfect position for Jesse Little on the white flag lap at New Hampshire Motor Speedway Saturday. The end result was him standing in Victory Lane with his first career NASCAR K&N Pro Series East win.
The 17-year-old from Sherrills Ford, North Carolina, drove around the two wrecking leaders in Turn 3 en route to winning the Granite State 100. The NASCAR Next driver and 2013 K&N Pro East Sunoco Rookie of the Year was making his 33rd K&N Pro start.
“The celebration was one I will never forget,” said Little. “It was truly amazing. And to do it on my mom’s birthday, too – it’s an amazing birthday present that I can hand her that trophy.
