Can a kid from Cali take on NASCAR legends in the Daytona 500?
It’s not every day that a NASCAR driver and rising star in the stock car racing world offers you a chance to shadow his every move leading up to the ‘Great American Race’. Thanks to Speed Stick®, we were able to hang out with sophomore driver Cole Whitt as he prepped for his second run in the Daytona 500. Watch Cole Whitt 'Defy The Doubt.'
► Excerpts from our interview with Cole Whitt:
Mankind Unplugged: How does a kid from Cali take on NASCAR legends in the Daytona 500?
Cole Whitt: I don’t know. Just go out there and try to do my job. I’ve been racing since I guess I was about 12 years old and just have been doing it my whole life. My whole life has probably been 50 races a year or more. It’s just something I’ve always done, so you just keep climbing the ladder. And now you’re to the highest ladder and the best racing in the world. There are 43 guys who get to suit up on Sunday and do this race.
A lot of people out there don’t have that opportunity. There are a lot of good drivers across the world who come here to compete against these guys. To be one of those top guys and part of the top 43 in the world is pretty cool. I guess I just keep that in my mind, and if we don’t have the best run, we’re still one of the top 43 in the world.
