Parker Kligerman is poised to become Westport’s most famous race car driver since Paul Newman.

The Staples graduate — now a freshman at the University of North  Caroline-Charlotte — has broken every rookie record in the 57-year history of  ARCA.  He’s won 7 ARCA RE/MAX stock car races this season.  The previous record was 4 — and there are still 2 races to go.

Parker has led in championship points several times — despite racing often on tracks he is seeing for the 1st time.

Two wins came on dirt tracks — a new venue for him.

Penske — Parker’s sponsor — has rewarded him with two NASCAR Nationwide races this fall.   His 1st NASCAR race is today at the Kentucky Speedway.  It will be televised on ESPN2 (2 p.m.).

Like most Westporters, you’ve probably never watched a stock car race.  If you make an exception for a neighbor, Parker Kligerman’s car is #22.
