NASCAR unveils bumper SpeedFest VI entry list

Thursday, May 31 2018

No fewer than 31 stock cars are expected to take to the track in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series (NWES) at American SpeedFest VI in just over a week's time, with American NASCAR legend Bobby Labonte among those in action.

Labonte will race at SpeedFest for a second successive year on 9-10 June, after making his European racing bow at Brands Hatch in 2017, and heads to Kent ninth overall in the NWES standings after an encouraging start to the season. The 2000 NASCAR champion will compete in two races across the weekend, racing in the Elite 1 class for pro drivers - there will be two additional Elite 2 races for gentlemen drivers.

Other drivers to look out for in the Elite 1 division will include reigning champion Alon Day, plus two-time champions Lucas Lasserre and Anthony Kumpen. There will even be an appearance from former Formula Ford Festival winner Marc Goosens, whilst fans will have a homegrown hero to cheer on in Alex Sedgwick.

In the Elite 2 class, some of you may recognise the name Tom Boonen, though not from the world of motor racing - he's a convert from road cycling. Boonen actually won the Green Jersey in the Tour de France when the race passed through Kent in 2007, and is a former World Champion.

Both classes will have a race on both the Saturday and the Sunday, guaranteeing race fans a quadruple helping of NASCAR action.
