Ocala, FL – April 12, 2014 – Florida racing sensation Devin Walker will be looking to continue his march toward the front of the United Dirt Late Model Series field when he unloads his sharp looking No. 55jr. Late Model and takes to the renown East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, Florida this afternoon.
Walker, 17, is considered one of the top racing prospects in the Sunshine State and is the 2013 Hobby Stock champion at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala.
Last weekend Devin returned to Bubba Raceway Park with his Late Model and despite getting caught up in a couple of early skirmishes, rebounded from the back of the field to finish ninth.
“We changed the whole setup on the car for this week,” the young Christian racer said. “The transition to the Late Models has been tougher than we’d hoped, but we’ve learned a lot about these cars. It’s so easy to drive. We just need a little bit of luck and a little more knowledge and we can start working our way to the front of the field.”
Devin is hoping that East Bay, a track he’s never raced at before, will provide a spark to set the team on a path of progress in the coming weeks.
“New track, new start,” he smiled. “I’ve watched the World of Outlaws Late Models race there but never have raced there myself. I can’t thank everyone enough who is helping me to make this step into Late Models and I am going to do everything I can to give them all something to smile about this week by driving as hard as I can. East Bay is a pretty famous track and I’m thankful for the opportunity to race there!”
