NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Division II-V Update
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — When he was a high school student Doug Curry helped field a race car for one of his teachers. Curry used the racing lessons to help win his first feature race this year. The lessons from the teacher helped him craft his off-track career.
Curry leads the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series mini stock point race at Connecticut’s Waterford Speedbowl. He’s in his fourth season of full time driving, but been around the .375-mile paved oval most of his life. His dad John Curry was a mini stock owner-driver in the 1990s. His grandfather, the late William T. Curry was a modified division owner-driver in the 1960s. It seemed natural for Curry, 20, of Groton, Connecticut, to become a race car driver at Waterford.
His step into Victory Lane in April was the culmination of experience and a lot of hard work on the family race car over last winter.
