Colin Garrett, a fellow Virginian who made his K&N Pro Series debut with an impressive sixth-place finish at Langley in the series’ most recent race. Originally only slated to run up to four races in the HSR No. 18 Toyota, Garrett’s showing at Langley had his team — and Rick Burtner, owner of Garrett’s primary sponsor, Propel GPS — rethinking its goals for 2018.
Expect to see Garrett run the remainder of the K&N Pro Series schedule.
Garrett only began racing in 2015, and that the K&N Pro Series is a long way from Limited Late Models. But he has a couple of things going for him — the first is Hunt, who only a few years removed from trying to climb the NASCAR ladder as a driver himself can relate to what Garrett will experience this year, and the second is Sellers. The Sellers family has been hands-on in Garrett’s racing career since his entry-level days at South Boston, and Sellers has himself been a NASCAR Whelen All-American Series national champion out of South Boston with on-track experience in the K&N Pro Series, the NASCAR XFINITY Series and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
Another talented teenager to bear watching in Saturday’s race is South Boston resident Colin Garrett who will pilot a Toyota out of the Danville-based Hunt-Sellers Racing stable.
Garrett finished sixth in his debut race in the recent NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race at Langley Speedway, giving the team its highest-ever recorded finish in NASCAR K&N Pro Series East competition.

But when it comes to South Boston Speedway, he’s far from a rookie, which should make up for some of his K&N inexperience. He was South Boston’s Limited Sportsman champion a year ago and has two full seasons in that division on the .4-mile oval.
Colin Garrett, South Boston Speedway’s 2017 Limited Sportsman champion, has signed with Hunt-Sellers Racing for three races of the 2018 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (KNPSE) schedule.
Garrett joins HSR’s driver development program while he competes in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series full-time, focusing on the Dominion Raceway track championship. For his partial KNPSE campaign, Garrett has partnered with Propel GPS.
