McGowan Fielding Three For Showdown

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Car owner Steve McGowan has teamed two veteran stock car drivers with a newcomer to the NASCAR K&N Pro Series for this year’s NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown at Toyota Speedway @ Irwindale, Calif.

McGowan has expanded his Bakersfield, Calif.-based team to three cars for the postseason event. David Mayhew and Auggie Vidovich will be joined by Travis Motley, who will be making his series debut during the event Jan. 29-30.

Mayhew finished second in the championship standings in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West in 2010 while driving McGowan’s No. 17 MMI Services/Ron’s Rear Ends/KHI Chevrolet.

“We’re really looking forward to getting back to racing again,” Mayhew said. “It’s been a long time. We’ve struggled at Irwindale the last couple of years. So, we’re really looking forward to this year.”

Vidovich scored his first series victory in 2010, winning at Toyota Speedway in one of three starts he made for Team Cass Racing during the season. The win secured him a starting spot in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series all-star race.

“I’m pretty excited,” Vidovich said. “I think we have a pretty good shot at doing good. There’s going to be a lot of competition. With the East guys coming out, they’ll be pretty tough. It will make it hard. We’ve just got to be good on set up and good on strategy.”

Motley, who has competed the past four seasons at Toyota Speedway in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series late-model division, is looking to make his first start in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series. The 20-year-old college student from Tucson, Ariz., attends Whitworth University in Spokane, Wash.
