McKENZIE, Tenn. (Dec. 1, 2017) – When we’re young, we are taught that hard work will help you achieve your goals. Sometimes the road is easy to travel, sometimes it takes perseverance – just like a full racing season can at times.

Both Jared Horstman and Justin Whittall showed they have the staying power to persevere in what can be an emotional sport – taking drivers, teams and fans from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows.

Ohio’s Horstman was crowned as the 2017 NRA Sprint Invaders champion on Saturday, Nov. 25. His third career series title, Horstman won 11 feature events en route to the title. He and his wife Meagan also welcomed their first child, a daughter named Brenley, in June of this year.

Pennsylvanian Whittall proved that steady is the course in claiming the 2017 Selinsgrove (PA) Speedway Rookie of the Year honors. While the teenager didn’t crack the win column this season, he consistently ran competitively in the 360ci Winged Sprint Car division. Whittall also dabbled in the 410ci division late season.
