Lapcevich Looking For Help to Complete Dream Season
Teenage NASCAR racer lacks funding to carry on
August 1st, 2016, GRIMSBY, ON –Cayden Lapcevich’s dream season could end prematurely if his family-owned NASCAR team Fastline Motorsports can’t find sponsorship.
The 16-year-old Grimsby racer earned his first career win last week in Saskatoon. The result moved him to within one point of championship leader Andrew Ranger in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series standings. Despite his success team owner and father Jeff Lapcevich isn’t sure of the team’s immediate future.
“It’s prohibitively expensive to race in this series,” said Lapcevich. “We lost our primary sponsor after last season to budget cuts, and we have tried to make things work with the associate sponsors we have.”
Fastline Motorsports is sponsored by Ace Services, Troy Cove Marine, Springers Meats, and Epic Racewear.
“Cayden has done a fantastic job,” said Jeff. “We couldn’t ask any more out of him. Following the entire series is just something we don’t think we can do without some financial help.”
Cayden’s win in Saskatoon was notable as he became the youngest winner in the history of the NASCAR Pinty’s Series. Prior to Cayden’s victory the youngest winner had been 19-year-old JR Fitzpatrick in 2007.
The Velocity Prairie Thunder 250 in Saskatoon was race seven of the 12-race schedule with the next stop on the tour coming in Trois Rivieres, Quebec.
