CENTERVILLE, TN – Willie Allen announced that Kyle Neveau of San Clemente, California, will pilot his team’s W.A.R. Development Toyota entry at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway on Oct. 3 for the track’s next local racing program.
Neveau last ran the 5/8-mile Fairgrounds Speedway in the 2019 All-American 400 where he started 28th and finished in 8th position. The second generation driver captured the runner up spot for the Spears Srl Southwest Tour Rookie of the Year in 2018, finished top-10 in points for 2019, and has continued to run the Super Late Model circuit this racing season. The 28 year old says he’s looking forward to the opportunity with W.A.R. and running in Nashville’s premier local division.
“I’m really looking forward to having the opportunity to work with Willie and the W.A.R. team there at Nashville. The guys who run there frequently are very good, but I know we’ll have great equipment and people with W.A.R. to put us in a good position. I’ve also never driven a Pro Late Model, so I’m excited to see what that’s like,” said Neveau.
W.A.R.’s Willie Allen says the team has been hoping for an opportunity to showcase Kyle in one of its development cars.
“We’ve been helping Kyle with his setup and shock program on the west coast with his Super Late Model program for a while now, and we have talked a few times about him running one of the Pro Late Models over here with us. He’s had good success at this track in the [All American] 400 and we’re excited that things have worked out with him for this race coming up on October 3rd.”
Neveau will start the No. 25 W.A.R. Racing Development machine sponsored by Santa Monica Brew Works, Axalta Racing, and Gordon Frazier, CPA. The team says announcements on practice and testing for the October race will be forthcoming.
