Caruso Wins 2022 NHRA Rookie of the Year
After nineteen races from coast-to-coast, Camrie wrapped up a strong season by qualifying for the 57th Auto Club Finals at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona. During the two days of qualifying rounds, Camrie made consistent runs and rolled into race day as the No. 13 qualifier. The 24-year-old driver qualified for every national event this season!
“We qualified for every race and our highlight was the race in Houston when we were No. 1 qualifier and raced to the final round,” said Camrie. “Every race this season I feel like we got better and I am excited to get back on track next season. We will have a lot of exciting announcements over the off-season and I want to thank Tequila Comisario, Powerbuilt Tools, Right Trailers, Sand Haulers of America, Procar by SCAT and everyone else that has supported us this season.”
