Daniel Alvarez Racing
2014 was a steller year for me running 29 races this season and bring home the Rookie of the Year trophy at the historic NASCAR Greenville-Pickens Speedway (GPS). We finished 3rd in the points standings just behind the 2014 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series National Champion Anthony Anders, who also won the GPS track Championship this year.
Finishing 80th in the nation in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series in our rookie year was pretty cool also. A big Thank You goes out to my parents, team, fans, competitors and primary sponsor Piedmont Technical College for their support.
  

IT'S OFFICIAL!
Daniel Alvarez Racing wants to officially welcome its  newest sponsor 
E3 Spark Plugs  
to the
2014 NASCAR Whelen
All-American Racing Series
.
I also want to give a very special Thank You to all of my facebook friends that vote for video.
 This could not have happened without you.
Winning the E3 Spark Plug video contest was very special to  me and my race team. We hope to make 2014 a winning season for both us.

The opportunity to be with Jack Roper and Megan Heidlberg this morning on their show was really cool. Mrs. Silvia Porter, Track Promoter for AMS and I were guest on the Your Carolina morning show getting the word out about the start of the 2014 racing  season and AMS getting their NASCAR sanction. I think the best part was holding the bear cube.
 A Night To Remember
The 2014 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series banquet was the event of the year for Hammer Time Racing thanks to an invite from the NWAAS 2014 National Champion and my friend Anthony Andres. It was great being able to attend this event and see my friend receive the National Champion Award. NASCAR really did a First Class job.

We did not win an award this year but I was still in the show. While sitting at the dining table talking about the NASCAR photographer who came and took my photo at
Greenville Pickens Speedway this season, we looked up and the there I was. It was the totally awesome. Everyone at the table started yelling and clapping as if we won something. It was great.The view from my seat. I had to get a picture of this. Yes that is a hammer in my hand working on the rearend. Made my year. 

We finished 80th in the country for my rookie season in NASCAR Division 1. I'll take it and the check.   








 
39 Races  39 Finishes
Running 39 races in one season is a tall order for any race team and team 33  did it. I ran 39 NWAAS events in 2014 and it was one of the hardest things I had ever done. When you run that many races in one season you eat, sleep and dream about speed. All the time!

I finished 3rd in the points at the historic 1/2-mile Greenville-Pickens Speedway & 10th in the points at Anderson Motor Speedway this year. 

If you work on your own stuff week-in and week-out you'll know what I am talking about. When you have to setup your car to run at one track one night and then turn around and then setup it up to run at a different track the next night. It makes for a seriously long weekend. Do this every weekend all season and you will find out what you are made of.

I can not thank my team at Hammer Time Racing and sponsors Piedmont Technical CollegeOuzts-Tinny Chiropractics and E3 Spark Plugs enough for their support and hard work.
