NASCAR returns to Gresham Motorsports Park on June 9th for the Slack Auto Parts 150 K&N Pro Series East. The Slack Auto Parts 150 is guaranteed to be a night of action-packed fun for the entire family!
Brett Moffitt had an unbelievable finish over Chase Elliott in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Blue Ox 100 with a margin of only .011 seconds. Elliott made up for the second place finish by gaining the first place standing in points, just four ahead of teammate, Ben Kennedy. Finishes like the previous one at Richmond are what make the K&N Pro Series East some of the best races in NASCAR.
With such a strong start for the NASCAR K&N young drivers like Moffitt, Elliott, Kennedy, Dylan Presnell and more, the veteran drivers might want to take notes. Depending on the results at Iowa Speedway and Bowman Gray Stadium, GMP could be a nail-biter just because the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East drivers are so close in points.
Henry Slack and his business, Slack Auto Parts, partnered with Gresham Motorsports Park in 2011 for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and GMP is excited to have Slack Auto Parts behind Georgia’s only other NASCAR race event, besides Atlanta Motor Speedway’s AdvoCare 500.
