JAR taps Dylan Westbrook for Knoxville Trucks
Jordan Anderson Racing Bommarito Autosport will add a little Canadian flair to its lineup of pilots as Dylan Westbrook is in the Chevrolet Silverado #3 for Saturday NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race to Knoxville Racecourse. Westbrook, a speed car racer who has competed on both sides of the Canada-US border, is hosting his first NASCAR race.
“I was fortunate to have the opportunity to race sprint cars all over the United States and Canada, and to make my NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut at the most famous track for motor racing. of sprint, it’s really to complete everything”, Westbrook commented.
The 23-year-old has won sixty-four times in dirt championships like the American racing car series, where he is currently second in points with a win at Lake Ozark Speedway. In his native Canada, he won the Ohsweken circuit track championship in 2015, 2016 and 2019. Westbrook is also no stranger to success in Knoxville, winning the Brownell’s Big Guns Partyof the 360 class in 2021.
He also participated in series like the All Star Champions Tour and United Sprint car seriesas well as events such as Knoxville Nationals and legendary Chili Bowl Nationals dwarf race. In the latter, he reached the A-Main twice in 2016 and 2017.
“This year, the race for Hill’s Racing we have tried to run as many weekly races in Knoxville as possible when there is no Lucas Oil ASCS Tour event trying to log extra laps and learn as much as possible in preparation for the famous national championships 360 and 410 from Knoxville in August,” Westbrook added. “Hopefully some of the things I’ve learned over the years in Knoxville will allow me to have an edge over the NCWTS regulars and get a respectable finish.”
JAR competes full-time in the Xfinity Series but has maintained its Truck program for its namesake owner. After missing the season opener, Anderson ran four races in No. 3 with top-twenty finishes in all but one and a race best of fourteenth at Texas and Gateway. Parker Price-Miller drove the truck at the 2021 Knoxville event to a twenty-ninth.
“Dylan has proven himself to be a very talented driver behind the wheel of a sprint car, with the number of competitions at some of these 360° national races, it’s an impressive feat in itself to park him in the road to victory, Anderson commented. “The ability of off-road racing drivers to adapt quickly to the ever-changing track conditions that Knoxville Raceway will provide during the race will accelerate Dylan’s learning curve as he straps in behind the wheel of the truck. His experience and knowledge of the Knoxville circuit will make him a great addition to the Jordan Anderson Racing Bommarito Autosport team.
