Turner-Scott Motorsports rookie driver, Dylan Kwasniewski, made the final round of qualifying Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway. As the final session drew to a close, however, Kwasniewski, crashed his No. 31 Rockstar Energy Chevrolet.
Kwasniewski, who won the 2012 K&N Pro Series West championship and followed that up with the 2013 K&N Pro Series East championship, is competing for Rookie of the year honors n the NASCAR Nationwide Series this season.
Kwasniewski currently sits eighth in the standings, with one top-10 finish and has an average finish of 15th.
It was also announced earlier this week, that the Las Vegas, Nevada native, has signed with Chip Ganassi Racing as a development driver. Chip Ganassi Racing driver, Kyle Larson, was also signed as a development driver two years ago, and is now competing for Rookie of the year honors in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
The Turner-Scott Motorsports team decided to not bring out a back-up car, therefore, Kwasniewski will be starting 11th in Saturday’s Drive to Stop Diabetes 300.
