Aspiring racers will be put to the test during a three-day racing competition.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – PEAK Motor Oil, Michael Waltrip Racing (MWR) and PEAK Motor Oil spokesperson Danica Patrick have announced the finalists of the PEAK Stock Car Dream Challenge, who will now compete for a chance to join Michael Waltrip Racing as a rookie stock car driver.  
Hailing from all across the country, the finalists were selected from more than 700 entries on, where aspiring amateur racers could submit a video audition highlighting their abilities, sharing their enthusiasm for racing and telling fans why they should be chosen to become the next stock car star.

They will be tested behind the wheel, through short-track road course, speedway, car control and endurance racing – all led by some of the biggest names in the sport.
One final winner from the racing competition will be selected and fast-tracked through an extensive preparation process including additional training and the opportunity to earn their competition license. Subject to qualification and licensing, PEAK will equip the winner with a sponsored stock car to compete in a sanctioned K&N West race to prove they have what it takes to become Michael Waltrip Racing’s next all-star driver.
The PEAK Stock Car Dream Challenge finalists are:
* Chase Briscoe – Mitchell, Ind.
