HANFORD, Calif. — D.J. Netto has announced his racing team will follow the King of the West Series in 2014 during the tour’s 18-race schedule across the state of California.
“I am very excited that we are able to run with the King of the West Series in 2014,” Netto said. “They have put together a great schedule, and I am excited to see what the new ownership group does with the series.”
Running with various sanctioning bodies last season, Netto filled his schedule with various 360 races ranging from the Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif., with the Taco Bravo series, to competing with the Civil War sprint car series.
Coming into his third full season racing winged sprint cars, Netto has found success early in his career, winning the 2012 Rebel Cup Series Championship and picking up two feature victories in 2013.
In 2014, Netto and his team welcome sprint car mechanic Cori Guy, who worked for the Finley Farms Racing team in 2013 and previously served a stint with Silva Motorsports.
“We are very excited to have Cori Guy join our team in 2014,” Netto said. “With his knowledge, we are hoping we an have an even better year in 2014, pick up a few more feature event wins and be competitive with the KWS boys on a nightly basis.”
Netto’s season will start March 5 with the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas. Netto and his team will follow WoO trail to Tucson Int’l Raceway and back to California.
“It is always a good test to take on the World of Outlaws,” he said. “Last year we did it at the start of the year, and learned a ton, that I think helped us with our regular season, so hopefully with a year of 410 racing under our belt, we can be a little better with them.”
