Tester at Daytona
Daytona Beach, FL - 18-year-old Tayler Malsam got his first taste of Daytona International Speedway this past weekend and came away feeling pretty good about his chances when the ARCA RE/MAX Series makes its season opening trip to the 2.5 mile superspeedway in February.
"We really worked hard on the racecar this weekend, and the entire Cunningham Motorsports team did a great job putting together a really fast package," said Malsam, who will begin his rookie season in the ARCA RE/MAX Series at Daytona.
"It was pretty special to get to drive here finally."
Malsam was 9th quickest overall by the end of testing on Sunday. "We rolled off the trailer with a good car, but we made a lot of progress as the weekend went on, and by Sunday we were able to show our speed. We struggled a bit on Saturday trying to find exactly the right package, but by Sunday the car was really good both by itself and in the draft, which is important for us, because we want to qualify toward the front for this race. The next step is to win here, and hopefully I'll get the opportunity to do that in February."
Malsam announced in late summer of '07 his intentions to compete in the ARCA RE/MAX Series fulltime in 2008 as a Dodge Development driver for Cunningham Motorsports.
