DENVER, North Carolina (June 30, 2015) - Tony Blanchard, president of RACE 101 announced today that his team will expand its platform to the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) division beginning with Saturday night’s event at Columbus Motor Speedway.

Sarah Cornett-Ching (@scornettching), the astounding rookie sensation will drive for the team in select races this season.

The former certified welder continues to mold her racing resume in preparation for a full-time career in NASCAR.

The 24-year old enters this weekend’s race on the heels of three straight top-10 finishes in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards, including a ninth-place finish Sunday at Winchester (Ind.) Speedway in the Herr’s Chase The Taste 200. With her fifth top-10 performance of the season, Cornett-Ching continues to march closer to the top-five in the championship standings, as well as inching towards the lead in the Rookie of the Year standings.

“We’re excited to add the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East to our schedule this season,” said Blanchard, who serves as Cornett-Ching’s driver coach, mentor and crew chief during ARCA race weekends. “For us, the extra seat time will help Sarah as she continues her goal of competing full-time in NASCAR.”

Cornett-Ching, a native of Summerland, British Columbia will make her second NASCAR K&N Pro Series East start of the season. In April, she competed at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway and scored a competitive top-20 finish.

“I can’t thank Tony (Blanchard) and everyone at RACE 101 enough for this opportunity,” the driver of the No. 02 RACE 101 Chevrolet said. “This is a great chance for me to learn more about the K&N cars, the different tire, while also racing at a new track and earning a good finish.”

While, Cornett-Ching has never seen the 0.333-mile oval of Columbus before, she takes the challenge in stride.

“All the tracks I’ve competed on in ARCA series this year have been new and we’ve had some great success there,” she added. “The K&N Series has stiff competition with a lot of great teams and drivers. We haven’t set any expectations other than to complete the laps and see the checkered flag. I know with Tony and the crew behind me, that shouldn’t be a difficult task.”

Blanchard echoed his driver’s sentiments.

“It’s not fair to put any expectations on the line this weekend,” Blanchard added. “The entire RACE 101 team is still learning about the K&N Series and the drivers she’ll race with. She earned respect at Bristol a couple months ago and we will continue to focus on improving our program as we go Saturday night.”
