14-year-old Ryder Wells from Lumberton, TX ready to race micro sprints at four tracks in five days

BEAUMONT, Texas - iSportsWire -- It'll be a busy week for POWRi 600 Gulf Coast Rookie of the Year, Ryder Wells, as he battles five straight nights in the NOW600 Lucas Oil National Championship Series presented by Hi-Plains Building Division. Known as #Sooner600Week the action encompasses four tracks over five nights from June 9 through June 13. It's the first time Wells has raced outside of Texas since his spectacular rookie run in the Tulsa Shootout, where he finished 19th in the Restricted A-Class.

"I've been looking forward to this since the Tulsa Shootout," Wells said. "The thought of racing five straight nights, at 4 different tracks, against the elite micro sprint drivers/teams in the nation is pretty exciting. Going into these races and not racing for points allows me to make some gambles on decisions where some other teams cannot.

"Without the help of Preferred Contractors, Kickin' the Tires, Universal Coin & Bullion and The Brooks Report Live, we wouldn't have this chance. But, most importantly, I want to thank my family, especially my mom, dad, (big sister) Chaise and my grandparents, who all believed in me."

Wells will kick off the action Wednesday, June 9 at Caney Valley Speedway in Caney, Kansas. Pits open at 4 p.m. with hot laps getting underway at 7 p.m. Racing action is slated to start at 7:30 p.m. From there, it's four more nights of racing in northern Oklahoma:

Creek County Speedway – Thursday, June 10
Red Dirt Raceway – Friday, June 11
Port City Raceway – Saturday, June 12
Creek County Speedway – Sunday, June 13

With the exception of Port City Raceway, the racing will be streamed live by Fast Four Media. In the Restricted Class, Wells will be racing each night for a $300 first-place prize.

"I must stay humble and open-minded as Sooner week is against the best of the best," Wells said. "My goal is to win at least one race and come away with a top 5 in the others but just being able to race at this level is a dream come true."
