IN SEARCH OF HIS FIRST SPEED CONNECTION SPORTSMAN TITLE
Nick Guererri sits second in the Speed Connection Sportsman division one point behind his brother and defending champion Matt coming into this Saturday, June 25th. The Guererri family has been a major part of the Land of Legends Raceway in the past three decades and its Speed Connection Sportsman division.
It’s certainly interesting and exciting for the family, “I have never won a championship, this is the closest I’ve ever been to one,” says Nick, who calls nearby Waterloo home. Nick is employed at Phelps Cement Products in its sales department. In past seasons, he spent some time at other local tracks, but with a ten-month-old daughter at home, Everleigh, he will just race exclusively at the Land of Legends Raceway in 2022. He is also engaged to be married to his fiancé Mercedes in 2023.
In addition to his brother Matt and uncle Paul, other Guererri family members in the Speed Connection Sportsman class are his cousins Frank Jr and Tony Velez. Its truly a family affair.
Nick has fifteen career feature victories, starting his career in 2007, all in the Speed Connection Sportsman division.
His sponsorship program for the 2022 season is impressive, The Young Agency (also a top sponsor at Land of Legends), Rock Solid Services, Phelps Cement Products, Champion Power Equipment, Waterloo Container, A+ Superior Services, Image X Graphics, BG Oil, Onyx Industries, NG Promotions, Scott Jeffery’s Performance, Traction Grabber and Haers Bros Racing.
Helping out on the team is Ant, Phil and Mashesk.
