DAYTONA BEACH, FL — NASCAR announced today the Top 10 Drivers of the First 25 Years of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East.
From its beginnings as a northeast-based stock car touring series in 1987, the K&N Pro Series East has featured a number of outstanding competitors through the years as it has evolved into NASCAR’s top development series.
Heading the distinguished list of participants through the first 25 seasons of the K&N Pro Series East is Andy Santerre, whose four championships are more than any competitor in series history. Santerre finished in the top five in the standings in four of his first five full-time seasons, then polished off his career behind the wheel with a remarkable four consecutive titles.
Kelly Moore, the K&N Pro Series East’s all-time wins leader, was second and two-time champion Brad Leighton ranked third. Three-time champion Jamie Aube and Ricky Craven, who recorded one of the most dominant seasons in NASCAR touring series history, rounded out the top five.
Mike Stefanik, Joey Logano, Ryan Truex, Dale Shaw and Dick McCabe – all of whom won championships and left a lasting impact on the K&N Pro Series East – brought home the top 10.
