UNCC Lab Manger in Victory Lane

July 10, 2014

The famous number 43 car of Richard Petty Motorsports returned to victory lane last Sunday in the Coke Zero 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Daytona. The last time the number 43 car was in victory lane was 15 years ago, and it was also 30 years to the weekend that Richard Petty won his 200th race. Amongst all that, one of UNC Charlotte's Motorsports lab managers (Kile Stinson) was in victory lane with the 43 team. "It's always special to be in victory lane, but to be part of the first team to take the 43 car to victory lane in over 15 years makes it that much better," said Kile.
