Young Gun Makes Early Statement in World Series Qualifying

One year ago, Jett Noland was in contention for the Pro Late Model championship during the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna Speedway.  If qualifying for the first night of racing during the World Series is any indication, Noland will be gunning for two championships this year.

 

The Florida young gun was quickest in David Rogers Super Late Model qualifying and second-fastest in Pro Late Model time trials Friday to start the World Series, posting a pair of fast laps in his Anthony Campi-prepared entries.

 

Noland set fast time in the Super Late Model qualifying session, with a time of 17.581 seconds around the half-mile oval.  2019 NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series National Champion Jacob Goede clocked in the second-fastest time, with a lap of 17.598 seconds.

 

Ryan Moore, the Super Late Model champion at the 2013 World Series, will lead the field to green in Friday’s lid-lifter following a four-car invert.  Super Late Model rookie Jake Finch, the son of former NASCAR team owner James Finch, will join Moore on the front row.

 

In the Pro Late Models, Kody Swanson clocked in at 18.035 seconds, ahead of Noland’s 18.145-second lap time.  With just a two-car invert in that division, Noland will lead Swanson and the rest of the Pro Late Model field to the green flag.
