POLEWARCZYK TO TEST K&N PRO SERIES CAR
HUDSON, N.H. — Joey Polewarczyk Jr. will test a NASCAR K&N Pro Series East car with Fadden Racing next week.
Polewarczyk, who owns five career ACT Late Model Tour victories, will test for team owner Mike Olsen during a southern states swing to open the month of March. Polewarczyk will test at Gresham Motorsports Park in Jefferson, Ga., on Monday, March 1. On March 2, Polewarczyk heads to Greenville-Pickens Speedway in Greenville, S.C., and then to South Boston Speedway in South Boston, Va., on Wednesday, March 3.
“It’s a real great opportunity,” said Polewarczyk, who has three career starts in the K&N Pro Series, formerly known as the NASCAR Camping World East Series. “Even though I’ve had three races with these cars before, I haven’t ever really had one full day just to go and test the cars and get really comfortable. That, to me, is just going to build my confidence.”
Polewarczyk, 20, competed for Fadden Racing last September in his only K&N Pro Series race of the 2009 season. He started fourth before finishing 28th in the 35-car field after being involved in a late-race incident not of his own making.
Polewarczyk made his K&N Pro Series debut at Thompson (Conn.) International Speedway in July 2008 with a 16th-place finish for owner Barney McRae. Later that season, he posted a career-best finish of sixth at New Hampshire in a Dave Davis-owned car.
“It’s getting closer to racing season here, so just to get some seat time next week and get away from the snow up here will be nice,” Polewarczyk said. “It will be good to get back at it.”
Polewarczyk finished fourth in the ACT Late Model Tour standings in 2009.
