Daniel Alvarez wins 2013 Rookie of the Year honors at Anderson Motor Speedway.
This is a huge honor for me after competing in all 11 Late Model Stock Car races this year I finished 6th in the points championship standings and won rookie of the year. I could not be happier. It was a tough season and the competition was extremely furious. I want to thank everyone that made this possible, my Lord, my team, my sponsors Piedmont Technical College, SoapSaverStore.com, Ouzts-Tinney Chiropractic & Spinal Rehabilitation, E3 Spark Plugs and my parents.
I also want to thank Anderson Motor Speedway for providing such a great facility to race at.
I am very excited about next season because we will be competing in NASCAR's Whelen All American Racing Series.
We have a Winner!
2013 PRI was a blast for Daniel "The Hammer" Alvarez.
Winning the custom made Butler Built racing seat at PRI was AWESOME! I was visiting the RAD "Race Against Drugs" booth and bought a couple of raffle tickets. I figured it was going to be nothing more then a donation because there were so many tickets in the box, I didn't think I had a chance. About an hour later my phone rang and BAM I won. They drew my name and I could not believe it. I am going to put it in my #33 Hammer Time racing Late Model to start the 2014 season.
I want to say Thank You to Scott Steger and Brian Butler.
Those are the guys in the photo below.
Hammer Time Racing and driver Daniel "The Hammer" Alvarez made a special visit to PTC's Automotive Technology shop today August 21, 2013 to greet all the students before the 2013 fall classes get underway.
Daniel "It was great. All the students were very interested in what makes the #33 PTC Ford Fusion go fast".
It was a good time for all and we always enjoy visiting the school, Below are some photos taken at the PTC Shop.
Just like a racecar driver when there's a caution, we pull off the race track and pit. If you get a text while driving, use caution and pull off the road in a safe place and pit.
Daniel Alvarez Racing has teamed up with Anderson Motor Speedway to launch Pit Your Text.
A campaign directed at educating todays youth on the dangers of T&D "Texting & Driving". It is extremely important that kids understand the consequences T&D because they are going to be tomorrows drivers.
Recently the team visited Southwood Academy School of the Arts in Anderson, SC and had an opportunity to speak to around a hundred 8th graders about this very dangerous activity. The kids were great and asked a lot of really good questions about T&D. They also asked a lot of questions about driving a NASCAR Late Model Stock Car.
We believe if you can get these future drivers to stop and think about the danger of texting while driving before they get behind the wheel, maybe just maybe, it will prevent personal injury, property damage or even save someone's life.
I believe everyone present walked away with a new sense of awareness on the dangers of Texting & Driving as well as knowing the safe thing to do when they find themselves or someone they know in that situation.
The team would like to give a special Thank You to the staff for their help and support of this event while we were on the campus.
2013 PTC Auto Camp
We had the privilege to attend this years Piedmont Technical College Auto Camp. It was a great time. I attended the camp years ago and it fueled my desire to go into the automotive profession. I even enrolled in the Automotive Technology program before I graduated high school.
Having an opportunity to speak to the campers and show my #33 NASCAR Late Model, Ford Fusion was really cool plus it gave me a chance to tell them my story and let them know it is possible to reach your personal goals in life. You just have to keep working at it, stay focused and capitalize on your opportunities.
I hope I get to do it again next year.
