Kaylee Bryson

Kaylee Bryson, 17, of Muskogee, will be featured as part of the Rev Racing Youth Driver line-up at the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Development Program, competing at the Bojangles Summer Shootout at Charlotte Motor Speedway, according to Rev Racing.

Bryson is an accomplished race driver who started racing winged karts in 2010 when she was only 8 years old. In two and a half years, she racked up 50 wins in the division, before she made the transition to Restrictor Micro-Sprint cars, where she got another 16 wins between 2013 and 2015. She was just the second female in history to win a Golden Driller at the Tulsa Shootout in 2015. In 2016, she won both of the micro-sprint races she ran before moving up to A-Class and Outlaw Micro-Sprint Cars, where she garnered multiple top three, top five and top 10 finishes before claiming the 2016 Port City Raceway A-Class rookie of the year and points championship honors.

In 2017, she won two A Feature races.

The junior NASCAR program she’s entering “cultivates growth and seizes the opportunity for development in drivers at the earliest age possible,” Jusan Hamilton, NASCAR senior manager of racing operations and event management, said. “Drivers who are successful and show promise are considered to compete for a chance at the next level of the program in the Late Model Series.”

The summer shootout will kick off with a practice session on Tuesday.
