The 2018 Short Track Draft presented by PFC Brakes is officially upon us.  Although the results of this year’s draft have yet to be released, the list of prospects was first released last Friday.  As expected, in the process of combing through thousands of short track racers, we missed a handful of drivers that should have been on the ballot. As a result, we have revised the list of prospects and will soon be sending the ballot out to the nearly 200 industry experts who will be voting.


The official 2018 Short Track Draft prospects ballot includes the names of over 250 short rack racers from throughout North America. From Sprint Cars to Late Models and everything in between, all of the future stars of auto racing are on this ballot.


“We’ve scoured America to find what we believe to be the most impressive drivers age 25 and younger from the short track racing world,” said Executive Editor Bob Dillner.  “We know we may still miss some and if we do, we encourage people reach out to us and to politely let us know. Our experts will also be able to use the write-in category to give us those names.”


In year’s prior, has revealed a ballot that included anywhere from 300 to 500 short track drivers.  This year, we narrowed that list down to include the drivers who met minimum requirements to be considered a prospect.


In order to be eligible for the ballot, drivers also needed to meet the following criteria:

– 25 years or younger as of April 1, 2018

– Maintain rookie status in NASCAR’s top-three series

– Have less than 10 races scheduled in NASCAR’s top-three series

– Competed in a short track racing event at least once in the last two seasons


The assembled list of prospects will be delivered to nearly 200 short track experts including race track promoters, series promoters, former number-one overall picks, short track veterans, media members, Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers and more.


From there, each expert will create their list of the top 51 short track racing prospects in North America. will then tabulate the votes and begin releasing the top picks on April 26 to coincide with the NFL Draft being held on April 26-28 in Arlington, TX.


Race fans, you too will have a say in who gets drafted first overall in this year’s Short Track Draft presented by PFC Brakes. Fans will have the opportunity to vote on our Five Star Race Car Bodies Facebook page and PFC Brakes Twitter feed. More details about the fan voting will be released soon, but fans are encouraged to use our official 2018 Short Track Draft Prospects Ballot when voting.


Write-in votes will also be allowed if the driver meets all of the criteria listed above.
