Big Field Expected For NASCAR Camping World Series West Event At Sonoma
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (June 3, 2009) – NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Raybestos Rookie of the Year candidate Joey Logano and noted road-racing veteran Boris Said are among the early entries for the Bennett Lane Winery 200 Presented by Supercuts at Infineon Raceway on Saturday, June 20.
The annual NASCAR Camping World Series West race is a companion event as part of the big NASCAR weekend with the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at the road course in Sonoma, Calif.
Logano will be pulling double-duty for Joe Gibbs Racing, competing in both events. The Middleton, Conn., driver became the youngest winner in the NASCAR Camping World Series West with a victory in his series debut in the second race of the 2007 season at the age of 16 years and 10 months. Logano competed in the NASCAR Camping World Series West event at Infineon Raceway two years ago, but was sidelined by engine trouble.
Said will be driving a special silver and black DenBeste Motorsports entry honoring the career of Oakland Raiders quarterback Ken Stabler. Said of Carlsbad, Calif., raced in the NASCAR Camping World Series West event at Sonoma in 2006 and again in 2007, when he finished third. He has a win at Infineon Raceway in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 1998 and four top-10 finishes in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
Last year’s NASCAR Camping World Series West race at Sonoma, which attracted a record field of 41 cars, featured a thrilling three-way battle for the win in the closing laps. Jason Bowles held on for the win, with Eric Holmes and Jim Inglebright close behind.
