Official 2019 Short Track Draft Prospects Ballot Released

Before they make it to the big leagues of NASCAR, aspiring stock car drivers cut their teeth within the short track racing ranks.  Each year, the Short Track Draft presented by PFC Brakes on Speed51.com ranks the top prospects at the short track level.

 

Although voting for this year’s draft has not yet commenced, the official ballot of eligible drivers has been released.

 

The ballot for the 2019 Short Track Draft presented by PFC Brakes on Speed51 contains 300 short track drivers hungry to climb the stock car ladder.  From Outlaw Karts to Sprint Cars, Bandoleros to Super Late Models, and everything in between, the ballot is filled with promising young stars of the racing world.

 

The ballot will next be distributed to a panel of industry experts, who will place their votes on which drivers belong on the final list of 51 draft picks, and which driver will be named the number-one draft pick of the 2019 Short Track Draft.

 

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

 

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

  • 25 years or younger as of May 1, 2019
  • Maintain rookie status in NASCAR’s top-three series
  • Have less than eight races scheduled in NASCAR’s top-three series
  • Competed in a short track racing event at least once in the last two seasons

 

Once all ballots have been submitted, Speed51 will tabulate the results and announce the top picks, coinciding with the NFL Draft being held on April 25-27 in Nashville, Tennessee.

 

A full schedule for the 2019 Short Track Draft presented by PFC Brakes will be revealed later this week.  Additional features such as scouting reports on selected drivers, the latest list of ineligible drivers and more will be published leading up to the announcement of the number-one pick.

 

Below is the full list of drivers on the 2019 Short Track Draft Ballot. Write-in votes will also be allowed if the driver meets all of the criteria listed above.

 

Like most people in this world, our staff at Speed51.com doesn't pretend to be perfect. It's possible that we may have missed a deserving driver or two on this list. If that's the case and you believe they deserve to be on the ballot, let us know by emailing [email protected]
