Meet Team E3 Racing Tier 2 Winner Alex Prunty

Alex Prunty is a third-generation stock car racer and second-year Team E3 Racing winner. He’s a third-generation racer back for his second year as part of Team E3 Racing. Twenty-year-old Alex Prunty clearly has racing in his blood, as the seventh member of his family to take the wheel on the competitive tracks. The Prunty family’s racing dynasty started with Grandfather Doug Prunty, who ran his one and only season in 1961. All five sons followed and Alex hit the tracks in 2009, racing a donated 1990 Nissan Stanza XE-turned-racecar. Turns out a host of engine and electrical issues were no match for the Prunty men’s mechanical prowess or Alex’s dogged determination. He landed his first feature win in just his sixth race at Wisconsin’s Slinger Super...

Meet Team E3 Racing Tier 1 Winner Brandon Williams

Team E3 Racing winner Brandon Williams runs the popular DirtXtra online magazine. Brandon Williams followed up his 2010 rookie year in unexpected fashion – by taking his sophomore year off.

Meet Team E3 Racing Tier 2 Winner Cody Perry

Team E3 Racing winner Cody Perry was a 2009 Rookie of the Year. Cody Perry has a bright future in racing – and perhaps the best manicured lawn in the neighborhood. “This may sound crazy,” says the latest Team E3 Racing winner. “But I always mow the grass right before we load everything up. It helps me concentrate, brings me good luck.” Perry’s strange pre-race regimen apparently is paying off. The high school senior from North Vernon, Indiana first hit the tracks in 2008 and quickly let it be known that he was the one to beat. Among his accomplishments: 3rd in Points at Twin Cities Raceway Park in the Hornet Division in 2009 Rookie of the Year at Twin Cities Raceway Park in the Hornet Division in 2009 5th in Points at Twin Cities Raceway Park in...

Girl Power Hits the NASCAR Pits -E3 Spark Plugs Digs Christmas Abbott

Christmas Abbott is busting through the gender barriers in professional racing, making history as the first NASCAR pit crew member. NASCAR pit crew members are a rare breed.

Enter Christmas Abbott, a petite but powerful crossfit champion and former Olympic weightlifting trainer who recently became the first female to dare to brave the crew pit. Several celebrated women have slipped behind the wheel to compete on the tracks – most notably Danica Patrick, who earlier this month became the first woman ever to claim the Spring Cup pole at the Daytona 500.
