Bowles Confirmed For All-Star Showdown
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Jason Bowles will return home to California next month to take part in the annual NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown at Toyota Speedway @ Irwindale.
Bowles, the 2009 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West champion, will drive for Gaunt Brothers Racing during the special all-star event for NASCAR’s regional touring divisions.
“Obviously, I’m excited to return,” Bowles said. “Trying to get that win at the Showdown is a big thing for me. We’ve never seemed to quite get that one. So, that’s what we’re shooting for.”
Bowles joins a trio of 2010 champions — Eric Holmes (NASCAR K&N Pro Series West), DJ Kennington (NASCAR Canadian Tire Series) and German Quiroga (NASCAR Mexico Series) — as well as Paulie Harraka, Moses Smith and action sports star Travis Pastrana as drivers who have announced plans to attempt the event.
The NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown main event is broken up into three sections — two 100-lap segments preceding a 25-lap dash to the finish. The race features secured starting spots for the 2010 champions of NASCAR’s developmental series and race winners of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series from the 2010 season.
