Hutchens Set to Kick Off 2017 Season at New Smyrna Speedway

Hutchens Set to Kick Off 2017 Season at New Smyrna Speedway February 16, 2017

Sunday Night’s “Jet Tools 150” at New Smyrna Speedway marks the season opener for the 2017 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Season and Trey Hutchens second visit to the half-mile race track.

“It has been a long off-season so to say I am excited to get to New Smyrna is an understatement. Dad and I learned a lot there last year and I think we are only going to be better this year. Before we even get to the race track, I need to thank Dad. I have been away at North Carolina State University so he has been working twice as hard to get me to the race track without my help in the shop. Hopefully I can repay him Sunday night with a checkered flag.”

After an unideal qualifying effort last year of 24th, Hutchens and company still managed to finish the race in the 14th position.

“New Smyrna is a unique race track. Track position was critical last year so Dad and I will put an extra emphasis on qualifying. I felt we were a Top-10 car but were unable to show it. I am confident our #14 Chevrolet will be ready to go on Saturday to test and Sunday to race.”
