NASCAR Whelen All American Series Debut for K&N Development Driver
Dreams do come true for girls who have been racing for most of their life. Caitlin Shaw’s stock car debut ended in a top-ten finish in the NASCAR Whelen All American Series. Shaw is a K&N Development Driver.
K&N Development Driver Caitlin Shaw Moved up to NASCAR Whelen All American Series
The 19-year-old Albuquerque, New Mexico resident experienced her first late model stock event at Hickory Motor Speedway in Newton, North Carolina. Shaw drove the No.12 Calico Coatings car with K&N products on “The World’s Most Famous Short Track.”

“The car was great during testing,” said Shaw. “We made a few changes to get ready for race day. Then, it was a different car. It would not turn. My crew did everything they could. We found a broken right rear shock toward the end of the night, but everyone showed a lot of heart through it all.”
Shaw joined the K&N racing family when she was racing Ford Focus Midgets. She started racing at 9-years-old and has been on the track one way or another ever since.
“I’m really excited to race this season at Hickory Motor Speedway,” she said. “Some of the most prominent drivers in NASCAR history have driven the 3/8th mile track. Drivers like Ralph Earnhardt and his family, to Junior Johnson and the Jarrett family have all been a part of the Hickory traditions and tough Saturday night racing competitions.”
Shaw hopes to compete in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series within five years, but for now she’s climbing the ranks at Hickory. “My Calico late model has a lot of potential,” she said. “Even though the competition is tough I believe our team can be a contender ever time we come to the track. I’m also a big believer in K&N products. I’ve used
for years. K&N makes the best products out there. We get excellent filtration and additional horsepower with K&N.”
Shaw will run in the NASCAR Whelen All American Series for the next few months.
