NASCAR K&N Pro Series East at Five Flags Speedway Photo Gallery

PENSACOLA, Fla. – Ben Kennedy captured his first career NASCAR K&N Pro Series East victory in storybook fashion.

The 21-year-old was fastest in practice, won the pole earlier in the the afternoon, and then went out and led every lap in the NAPA Auto Parts 150 Saturday evening as the series made its inaugural visit to Five Flags Speedway.

"It's so cool to come here to Pensacola and win," Kennedy said. "This is a track with so much prestige and this is phenomenal."

Fifteen-year-old series rookie Gray Gaulding had to settle for second, with Johnny Van Doorn third. Points leader Brett Moffitt came home fourth, followed by Five Flags Speedway Super Late Model veteran Kenzie Ruston.
