Summerland’s Sarah Cornett-Ching continues to make moves in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East.

In her last race in Mobile, Alabama Cornett-Ching passed the most cars and won the Coca-Cola Move of the Race Award, taking the checkered flag in 11th position.

On Saturday, March 26, she raced for the first time at the Greenville Pickens Speedway in the Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 150 on the historic half-mile South Carolina oval.

“I’m excited to race at Greenville Pickens, it’s a track with a lot of history and is known for some great racing,” Cornett-Ching said before the race.

“We have momentum from last week at Mobile that we will take to this new track this weekend.”

This was her second race with Dickies on-board as a sponsor, after the company announced their plan to team up with Cornett-Ching for the remainder of the 2016 season just before the race in Mobile. Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, the Williamson-Dickie Mfg. Co. is the number one manufacturer of work apparel worldwide.

Off the strength of her solid finish last week, Cornett-Ching moved into a tie for 12th place in the K&N Pro Series East driver points standings, and is only four points outside of the Top 10.

She finished Greenville in 13th place.

“Not a bad finish, but it doesn’t reflect how much effort we are putting in and we are still looking for more,” she said after the race.
