FRANK HECKENAST, JR. LEADS THE WAY IN ROOKIE CHASE!
(August 20, 2014) Of the three rookies following the World of Outlaws Late Model Series this season, Frank Heckenast, Jr. has been both the most competitive and the most consistent. Not surprisingly, he has a firm grip on the rookie points chase. Of course, that could change quickly if Heckenast struggles or runs into trouble and Junghans or Briggs hit their stride in the season's final races.

Heckenast is going to do everything he can on his end to make sure that doesn't happen. "I'm not really worrying about the rookie deal, but I know that Chase or Briggs could catch us," said Heckenast, a 26-year-old second-generation racer. "I know that if I just go out each week and run my best, we should be fine. That's really how I'm approaching it, just doing my best to be competitive each night." | more
