2024 Kulwicki Driver Development Program Application Made Available




The Kulwicki Driver Development Program is again accepting applications for short track drivers across the country. Entering its nineth season, the Kulwicki Driver Development Program has helped mold dozens of drivers across the country, including Program Champions, Max Cookson, Ty Majeski, Alex Prunty, Cody Haskins, Brett Yackey, Jeremy Doss, Luke Fenhaus and Dylan Zampa.


Established in 2015 by the family of 1992 NASCAR Winston Cup Champion and 2019 NASCAR Hall of Fame Inductee Alan Kulwicki, the Kulwicki Driver Development Program (KDDP) is the premier short track driver development program for stock car drivers in North America. The role of the KDDP is to help worthy drivers achieve their dreams, while also keeping alive the legacy of Alan Kulwicki.



Seven drivers will be selected to participate in the season-long race for the 2024 Kulwicki Cup. 


Each driver will receive $7,777 in monies, goods, and services at the beginning of the season, and will compete against one another for a $54,439 grand prize (monies, goods, and services) and a coveted, one-of-a-kind trophy. Program participants will be judged on race results, off-track civic participation, program promotion, fan interaction, and stewardship for Alan’s story.



Applicants should have experience in asphalt late model stock, pro late model, super late model, or a comparable style of racing, and plan on participating in AT LEAST 15 RACES during the 2024 season. 


Drivers who have competed in, or in 2024 plan on competing in the NASCAR Cup, Xfinity, Truck, ARCA Menard's Series (National, East, and/or West), and/or NASCAR Pinty's Series are INELIGIBLE for the program. 


There is no age limit, but preference will be given to candidates between the ages of 16 and 25.


All application materials are due by midnight on January 15, 2024. Click here to submit your KDDP application.
