Winston-Salem Driver And Family Team On The Rise
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Dillon Bassett made his debut among NASCAR Whelen All-American Series national point leaders this month, ranking as the No. 2 driver in the nation for the first three weeks of the season.
Bassett, 17, of Winston-Salem, N.C., didn’t plan to introduce his name to a national audience with such success.
“This is just the way it’s happening,” Bassett said. “Going into the season we had no intentions of being in championship point standings. We just wanted to focus on our equipment and try to win races.”
