South Carolina Driver Wins First Whelen All-American Crown
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Anthony Anders was sitting with friends in the grandstands off Turn 4 at historic Greenville Pickens Speedway when he got the itch to give this racing thing a try. Twenty years later, the Easley, South Carolina, driver has reached the pinnacle of short-track racing.
Anders is the 2014 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series championship.
The 43-year-old Anders accomplished the feat by leading the national points standings every week of the season and finishing with 30 wins, ninth most in a single season in the history of the series.
“I remember being at the banquet and seeing all those banners (of past national champions),” Anders said. “I said, ‘I want to be there one day.’
Hill Takes Kevin Whitaker 140 Checkered Flag At Greenville
GREENVILLE, S.C. – Ben Rhodes entered the Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 140 needing to finish at least 13th to clinch his first NASCAR K&N Pro Series East crown, he did nine spots better.
The 17-year-old Louisville, Kentucky, native earned his 11th top-five finish of the season, crossing the Greenville Pickens Speedway finish line fourth and clinching his first series title in the process. Fellow NASCAR Next driver Austin Hill earned his first victory of the season and second of his career.
“It means a lot to see this year to come together like it has,” said Rhodes. “This is what we set out to do in the beginning of the year.
GREENVILLE, S.C. – Ben Rhodes is picking up right where he left off.
Rhodes, who won the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race at Greenville Pickens Speedway earlier this year, posted the fastest time in practice at the half-mile oval Saturday afternoon.
The 17-year-old from Louisville, Kentucky, had a fast time of 20.900 seconds (86.124 mph) in the first 45-minute practice for the Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 140. Rhodes needs only to finish 13th or better in the race to clinch his first series championship.
Austin Hill was the second fastest in the first practice with a time of 21.202 (84.898 mph) and Gray Gaulding followed in third with a time of 21.224 (84.810 mph).
Cameron Hayley of Calgary finished eleventh in his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, ONT on Sunday. He qualified tenth in the No. 32 Cabinets by Hayley Chevrolet for Turner Scott Motorsports, and ran solid throughout the day.
“I knew it was going to be tough coming in, and I think we did well,” Hayley said. “I qualified in the top 10, which was our goal, and felt that I could do a little bit better in the race. But we were up to seventh at one point I believe and just kept rallying back and the cautions never really worked out in our favor, but we were really happy with the day and just learned a ton.”
“It was crazy how fast the track was and there really was no slow section,” Hayley said of the 2.46 mile track. “Most of the time on a road course, you use all four gears and spend most of your time in second around these tighter road courses and this track you spent most of your time in third and fourth, which shows how quick the track was and it was definitely the fastest one I’ve ever been on.”

16-Year-Old Hoping to Improve on Season-Best 12th Last Week at Bristol
After filling the books with notes in the first three events of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East season, 16-year-old Brodie Kostecki and his Arcoplate No. 43 tem are ready to build some momentum towards a run at the Sunoco Rookie of the Year title. Kostecki has positives to build on from his first races at New Smyrna (FL), Daytona (FL) and Bristol (TN), but the results at the end of the three races haven’t been to his satisfaction.
Kostecki now hopes to continue an upward slope following last week’s 12th-place finish in the K&N East race at Bristol as he moves to historic Greenville Pickens Speedway for the Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 150 this Saturday, March 22.
“I raced late models last year and we ran on a lot of flat racetracks and some of that experience will be put to good use this weekend at Greenville, considering I’ve never raced there before,” said Kostecki. “I know that place is tough, very flat and you have to run right up against the inside wall. It’s just one of those things where you’ve got to have a lot of forward drive at the end of the race. That’s what will make or break your night.”
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East heads to Greenville (S.C.) Pickens Speedway on Saturday, March 22 for the Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 150, the season’s fourth event. Below is a look at the performance of the series and selected drivers at Greenville, as well as, some other statistical trends:
Greenville Race Setup
• Sergio Peña is part of an impressive list of NASCAR K&N Pro Series East winners at Greenville that includes Austin Dillon, Dylan Kwasniewski, Joey Logano and Darrell Wallace Jr., who is the only multi-time series winner at the track.
• Eddie MacDonald, who broke a 53-race winless streak with a triumph on March 15 at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway, leads active drivers with 10 GPS starts and four top-five finishes.
• Track position is critical in short-track racing, and Greenville is no exception. The average starting position for the 11 race winners is 3.18.
That’s the belief of Ben Rhodes as the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East makes its 12th visit to Greenville (S.C.) Pickens Speedway on Saturday, March 22 for the Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 150.
“I think adding the break and giving us four tires will make a huge difference over what we saw last September,” said Rhodes.
After several drivers opted to employ a tire-saving strategy in the last series race at the South Carolina half-mile oval, NASCAR decided to add a halfway break and allow the teams four additional tires to use during the event.

K&N East Teams Make Strategic Play For Success At Greenville
GREENVILLE, S.C. – It was a strange sight at Greenville Pickens Speedway on Monday evening, watching race car drivers toss both instinct and conventional wisdom out the window net in a battle to go… slower.
The Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 140 on the worn-out half-mile was a game of chess in which NASCAR K&N Pro Series East drivers and teams played a sort of reverse-chicken. Instead of racing to gain track position as quickly as they could in the early going, almost to a person drivers slid back outside the Top 10 in an effort to not push the speedometer and wear out tires.
“I’ve never seen a race here where we were all on the same game plan like that,” said Eddie MacDonald, the series veteran who went from 15th at the midway point of the event to finish fourth at the checkered flag. “It made it a little easier because everybody was on the same page. Nobody was really trying to race each other, except for a couple of guys who didn’t really know what the game plan was.
K&N Pro East Points Leader Rolls To Season-High 5th Win
GREENVILLE, S.C. – Dylan Kwasniewski dominating season just keeps rolling along.
The 18-year-old from Las Vegas won for the fourth time in the last six NASCAR K&N Pro Series East races – and for the fifth time this season – as he took the checkered flag in Monday’s Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 140 at Greenville Pickens Speedway.
Kwasniewski’s No. 98 Royal Purple/Rockstar Energy Drink Chevrolet finished 2.650 seconds over runner-up Daniel Suárez. After starting on the pole for the third time this season, he surrendered the lead on Lap 3 to Suárez and fell back to as far as ninth, but that was part of the plan.
“That was the strategy today to make sure we had something for the end,” said the victor, whose best Greenville finish coming into the day was seventh. “We didn’t want to drop too far and put us in a bad spot when it was time to go.”
Patience paid off for Kwasniewski. After dropping back in the pack he began a methodical march back through the field. By Lap 100 he was back in contention for the race lead. On race’s 108th lap Kwasniewski worked his way around Jeremy Burns in Turns 3 and 4 for the lead. From there, it was just a matter of staying away from trouble as he was able to get away from the rest of the lead pack.
GREENVILLE, S.C. — Dylan Kwasniewski continues to lead the way.
The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East points leader topped the field in qualifying Monday at Greenville Pickens Speedway for his his third 21 Means 21 Pole Awards presented by Coors Brewing Co. in the last four races.
Kwasniewski, who enters Monday night’s Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 140 with a 28-point lead over Brett Moffitt, had a lap of 20.810 seconds (86.497 mph) around the flat half-mile oval.

Moffitt, who had three previous pole awards at Greenville and led both practice sessions, was fourth fastest in qualifying. Austin Dyne rounded out the top five.
