This is NASCAR's premiere developmental circuit.

ALTON, Va. -

For the first time in Virginia International Raceway's history--- NASCAR’S premier developmental circuit, the K&N pro series hit the track.

But not only was this a new race at VIR, it was the first road race on the series since 2010.

In the inagural Biscuitville 125, it was a four-time winner this season, Dylan Kwasniewski took home the checkered-flag. “We knew we had to keep our tires under us and we couldn’t burn it off,” said Kwasniewski. “We had a good race car and at the end we had something to outrun the guys. Couldn’t ask for anything better”

He led a race high 39 laps out of 57 total holding off, Bryan Ortiz by just over eight, tenths of a second.

Vinton native, Michael McGuire finished 16th one spot higher than he started. This race was the 17-year old's first road race and he says he was able to learn a lot. “Definitely a lot of tire management,” said McGuire. “I made a few minor mistakes that got us towards the back, but we had a top ten car. I wish we could have been up there.”

With just five races left, Kwasniewski leads the points for the K&N East series.
