It’s pretty difficult to keep a true racer away from a race track in some capacity, an example you can see demonstrated by multiple competitors in NASCAR’s top-three divisions, like Kyle Larson, Christopher Bell, and Stewart Friesen.
Justin Haley, a full-time competitor in the NASCAR Cup Series for Kaulig Racing, is another driver that can be added to that prestigious list. Even though he may not run all the high-profile, big purse events that Larson does, the Winamac, Indiana driver often finds himself racing on the dirt, when he isn’t otherwise occupied with his NASCAR duties.
One of the biggest non-NASCAR events of the year for Haley, who often races with his brother Quentin, is the World Short Track Championships at Charlotte Motor Speedway’s Dirt Track.
Now, thanks to Limeade Media, fans will get the opportunity to get an exclusive look into the preparation for the event, as well as the race weekend experience, with a series titled “Beyond The Lights: Road to Charlotte”.
The four-part docuseries follows Justin and Quentin Haley, as they compete in the yearly event in Charlotte, North Carolina, albeit in different divisions. Justin will pilot his No. 99 entry in the UMP Division, while Quentin will drive the No. 13 in the Crate Modified Division.
Episode one, released on Sunday, November 20, is titled “Preparation”, and follows the Darkhorse Racecars crew as they introduce themselves, and get prepare themselves to arrive at the track for the race weekend.
The second episode, which will be released on Tuesday, November 22 at 6:00 PM ET, is titled “Rim Riding”, and follows Justin and Quentin in the weekend’s first day of racing action, which includes hot laps, qualifying, and a special feature race for Justin.
On Thursday, November 24, the third of four 20-minute episodes will premiere with the title “Flat Out”, and covers both Justin and Quentin as they set the field for Saturday’s racing action, in the heat races, as both drivers needed to feel out their cars to make final preparations for the big show.
The fourth and final episode of the four-part docuseries is titled “Get Some”, and follows both Justin and Quentin Haley as they make the final touches on their rides, before going out to race for the big check in the A-Main. The final episode will premiere on Saturday, November 26th.
