For Immediate Release:
Lancaster PA – (Nov. 21, 2016) After 36 years behind the wheel and 12 years as owner of Racer X Motorsports, Randy Kaylor has announced that he is semi-retiring. Although Kaylor said he is not ready to give up the driving duties forever, he is ready to turn over the wheel and his attentions to Racer X’s new driver, Nick Sweigart.
The 19-year-old Sweigart participated in a test and tune at Susquehanna Speedway earlier this year and proved to be faster and required a great deal less coaching than anticipated. “He has a great deal of natural talent. We’re very excited to see where 2017 leads us,” stated Kaylor.
Sweigart began his career in quarter midgets and then up to micros in Pennsylvania. He will continue his climb with Racer X in 305-winged sprint cars on the tough Central Pennsylvania circuit. He is tentatively scheduled to run 10 events at Susquehanna Speedway in 2017 but more may be added as sponsorship allows.
