Daytona Beach, Florida-Daniel Die will remain at Ben Kennedy Racing to compete in the ARCA Menners Series East for the upcoming race season, choosing an event for the ultra-late model.
Dye challenges the entire schedule of the ARCA Menards Series East, in addition to the 17 ultra-late model events.
Dye made two ARCA Menard Series East Starts for Ben Kennedy Racing last year, including a 7th place finish at the Season Finale at the Five Flags Speedway. A 17-year-old junior at Lopezcatrick High School in Daytona Beach, Florida, chases the East Series Championship with the handle of Race No. 43 Chevrolet SS to prevent suicide.
“I am very grateful for the opportunity to drive for such a prominent organization at Ben Kennedy Racing,” said Die. “BKR is a prestigious business and a great group of people to work with. Thank you for your full support of my partner and me for another year.”
Dye launched 29 professional and super late model events in 2020, garnering 21 Top 10 and 11 Top 5 finishes, ending the season with high attention. In November, Daniel finished second in the New Marna Speedway’s Governor’s Cup against Baba Polard and was the best finish rookie in the December Snowball Derby.
“I’m very excited that Daniel will grab the steering wheel of BKR’s 43rd car and drive again in 2021,” said team owner Ben Kennedy. “It was great to work with Daniel this year. I am confident that we will win many wins next season.”
Ben Kennedy Racing also has a technical partnership with GMS Racing. The organization will work closely with the preparation of all ARCA Chevrolets that dyes will race during the ARCA Menard Series East Season.
“We are proud of the progress Daniel has made at BKR last year and look forward to the participation of him and his partner in the 2021 season,” said Jimmy Kitchens, Vice President of Ben Kennedy Racing.
No. 43 Ben Kennedy Racing entries are regularly seen on the New Marna Speedway and will start racing in the New Year. Dye will be competing in all Super Late Model events during Speed Week on Red Eye 50/50 on January 2nd, ARCA Menard Series 175 on February 8th, and Home Track at News Marna Beach, Florida.
