The National Open Wheel 600 series is the largest 600 micro-sprint sanctioning body in the United States.
Dominic White, 13, of Plainview, competed in this national series in the “Winged A” class during the 2022 racing season, competing against a total of 158 total registered drivers in this class throughout the year.
This national series led White to compete at race tracks in Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Nebraska and Arkansas, making 12 A Feature Races, five top-5 finishes and eight top-10 finishes. He was awarded the overall 2nd place finish in the National Series, coming in behind 32-year old Frank Flud from Broken Arrow, Okla.
This is only White’s second year in a micro sprint car, and the 2023 race season will begin again this month.
