GRIMSBY, ON- A 4-season veteran at just 10-years of age, third-generation driver Treyten Lapcevich is no stranger to turning heads and breaking records.
The Grimsby, ON youngster – son of NASCAR Canadian Tire Series star Jeff Lapcevich – first turned a wheel aboard a Quarter Midget at 4 and a half, and began competing at age 5.
“Racing has always been such a huge part of my family. It started with my father and he passed it down to my brothers and I, and it wasn’t long until my kids started showing interest in it as well. It’s in their blood” explained Jeff Lapcevich.
Treyten’s Quarter Midget credentials are unquestioned, in 4 seasons of competition, the grade-school student has earned over 100 feature wins, including a trio of QMA Grand Championships in Michigan, Alabama and British Columbia. Recently, Treyten became the first driver in the 60-year history of the Jr. Honda class to sweep all 6 heat and feature races at the Columbus Indoor Winternationals.
“We’re gonna start Treyten off slow. Sunset has never had a Mini Stock competitor this young, so we’ll begin with some practice sessions, monitor his progress and go from there. He won’t see a green flag until our entire team feels as though he’s ready”
Lapcevich’s Fastline Motorsports team has acquired Mini Stock veteran Dave Bailey’s championship winning chassis for Treyten to pilot, and are hard at work to have the car ready for Treyten to practice as soon as the Spring temperatures roll in.
Fastline Motorsports is actively seeking a primary sponsor for Treyten’s record-breaking freshman season, and would like to thank Tim Hortons, Springers Meats, Castrol, Cathcart Trucking and Troy Cove Marine for their continued support.
