Charlotte, N.C. (December 11, 2014) – HScott Motorsports with Justin Marks is proud to announce that Dalton Sargeant will join their newly-created NASCAR K&N Pro Series team to compete full time in the 2015 racing season. The announcement comes just four days after Sargeant’s impressive debut in the Snowball Derby, finishing in second to John Hunter Nemechek.
HScott Motorsports with Justin Marks will field four teams with returning driver Scott Heckert, and Rookie of the Year contenders William Byron, J.J. Haley and Dalton Sargeant.
“The future of NASCAR is being developed in the NASCAR K&N Series,” said Scott. “My partnership with Justin Marks to field four teams in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East is an opportunity for us to help young drivers get to the next level. We are fortunate to return to the series with remarkable talent that already includes two championships, 15 victories and 14 poles.”
Sargeant, a former competitor in the International Kart Federation and World Karting Association, also will compete for K&N Rookie of the Year honors in 2015. The 16 year-old native of Boca Raton, Fla., began his stock-car career in 2014 by competing in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series and earned his first career stock car victory last August at Virginia International Raceway and followed it with a second win at Orange County Speedway in October. Along with his two wins, Sargeant posted 26 top-10 finishes in his rookie season, including a runner-up finish in the prestigious Snowball Derby.
“I couldn’t be happier to join this esteemed organization and compete in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series,” said Sargeant. “These past six months have all been dedicated to preparing myself for the next level in stock-car racing, which will be in the ultra competitive NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. I’ve been watching the series and the graduates for a long time and it’s definitely the best proving ground and platform there is. If we can be competitive and put ourselves into positions to win races in that caliber of series, it would be a really big accomplishment. It was always a big goal to compete in a NASCAR series so I’m going to wear that patch on my firesuit proud. Couple that with Mike Greci and the great people at HScott Motorsports and the new partnership with Justin Marks is all really exciting. There’s still a lot of work to do before we go racing, so we’ll get down to business immediately and come out strong in 2015.”
