Introducing another 'kid' Kyle; 15-year-old Missouri racer Weatherman to make ARCA debut at Salem

(WENTZVILLE, Mo. - February 22, 2013) - Every off-season, racers across the country reflect on the past racing season and ponder their racing future hoping the next season will be their best yet. For Kyle Weatherman, an up and coming racing talent from Missouri, he's ready to take the next step in his career in 2013, ascending the racing ladder.

Weatherman, 15, will make his debut in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards this season competing in at least seven events in the 61-year-old nationally-acclaimed stock car series. The first event for Weatherman and the team will be at the ultra-fast and high-banked Salem Speedway short-track on April 28.

"I'm really excited for this year," Weatherman said. "We have a lot going on with testing and racing the ARCA car. I'm ready to race against all the professional ARCA teams and drivers and can't wait to finally get on track in a race."

Other ARCA races on Weatherman's schedule in 2013 include Toledo, Elko, Winchester, Berlin, Madison, and a second trip Salem in the fall.

After cutting his teeth in Legend Cars for the past five seasons where he earned more than 190 victories and five championships, Weatherman is ready for his next challenge.

"Racing full-bodied stock cars is going to be a blast," Weatherman added. "We have tested a few times already and will test a lot this year before each race. We tested at Rockingham (N.C.) last fall and it was incredible. I know I am going to love these cars and I know we have the team to be competitive."

Weatherman will also continue to race his Legends car in the Pro division throughout the season at select events across the country and the Summer Legends Shootout at Charlotte (N.C.). He will also race a handful of asphalt Super Late Model races including the prestigious Snowball Derby in December.

Weatherman's younger brother Clayton (13) is also on the fast-track up the motorsports ladder. The younger Weatherman has already earned several victories this year, graduating to the USLCI Legends Pro division after scoring over 130 victories in the Bandolero and Young Lions division the past five years.
