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 theYour 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.
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.
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!
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.
