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.
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.(For more information on Westport’s NASCAR driver, click here.)
