Jimmy Zacharias recently captured his fourth NASCAR Whelen All-American Series state title in New York, and now he's changing and moving up to a new series.

Zacharias will compete in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East in 2018, and he will make his debut at New Smyrna Speedway on Feb. 11 in Florida.

He'll drive the No. 31 Whelen Engineering/Marsh Racing Chevrolet for Ted Marsh next season.

"We're going to start at New Smyrna and see how it goes," Zacharias said via Motorsport.com. "(Marsh is) a good guy, Monday was my first time meeting him and the team. It seemed like we knew each other for a while and we just hit it off and had a good day talking."

Zacharias has dominated the Whelen All-American Series in recent years, and he feels like he's ready to take the next step as a driver.

In addition to racing in the Pro Series, Zacharias also plans to race at the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna Speedway.
