Carnesville, GA – Luke Hyre of Rock Cave, WV has won the 2019 FASTRAK Future Star Cup. The FASTRAK Future Star Cup is awarded to the driver who is still a teenager and accumulates the most points throughout the season. A season which saw him begin the year with a 602 engine, he made the switch to a 604 and saw results before season’s end. A highlight of the 15 year old’s season was making the feature both nights during the FASTRAK Racing Series powered by Chevrolet Performance’s stop at Tyler County Speedway during the “Hillbilly Hundred” weekend.
“It was a great weekend, with a lot of the touring guys coming in, we got off to a great start qualifying 5th in our group,” said Hyre, “We were running fourth in our heat, and held that position to claim a starting spot. Unfortunately, we got caught up in wreck, but making the show as awesome. On Sunday we were better and were running 13th in the feature before we got into wall. It was just awesome to make the show against those guys.”
Hyre’s season is continuing even after the points are over. Piloting his “H2O” car, he reached victory lane for his first Pro Late Model win on Saturday September 21st at Elkins Speedway. His first top 10 of the season came at Elkins on June 21st. On August 17th Hyre recorded his first top five at Elkins Speedway.
“The season started off rocky but has turned out to be a great year,” continued Hyre, “We were able to lead some laps there at Elkins and pick up the win, it was a great night overall.”
The story behind is unique “H2O” car number goes back two generations. His grandfather drilled water wells for 30 years, a business that his father has continued for the last 20.
Hyre competed the entire 2019 season with the AFCO Crate Spec Shocks, which have seen great results throughout FASTRAK in 2019.
