Fadden Racing Set For Greenville And South Boston With Joey “Pole” Polewarczyk
North Haverhill, N.H. (March 22, 2010): Fadden Racing won’t begin campaigning their new development driver, Julian Camilo Albarracin, in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East until June, but their presence will be strong in the series until then. Joey “Pole” Polewarczyk will return to the Fadden Racing drivers seat to compete at the series opener at Greenville-Pickens Speedway on Saturday, March 27 and will return for South Boston Speedway on April 2.
“Joey is a very talented driver and we’re excited to be giving him the chance to show that at this level,” said Fadden Racing car owner and K&N Pro Series two-time champion Mike Olsen. “Joey came and tested with us earlier this month and he showed he could get the job done. We’re pretty confident heading into this race.”
Polewarczyk has built a name for himself as a regular on the ACT Late Model Tour, where he finished seventh in the 2009 point standings with two wins. Last June, the 20-year-old driver won the Vermont Governor’s Cup 150 at Thunder Road after fielding a second car for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Tony Stewart.
Polewarczyk made one start at New Hampshire Motor Speedway last year for Fadden Racing and two previous starts in the series back in 2008 for different car owners. Two of his starts were made at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and the other at Thompson Motor Speedway with a career best finish of sixth place. The driver welcomes the opportunity to get on the tighter confines of a short track like Greenville, where he expects to come home with a top-10 finish.
“I haven’t had a lot of time in these kind of cars at a track where I was comfortable. I love Loudon — don’t get me wrong — but it’s not something I’m used to,” said Polewarczyk. “I’m used to the ACT Tour and the smaller tracks we run on there. (The short tracks) are a lot more what I’m used to.”
“The way the track looks, qualifying is very important there,” he continued. “If you start up front, you’re going to get away from crashes and everything that’s bound to happen throughout the race. My personal goal is a top-10 finish. The car is definitely capable of more, but for me to go there and get a good top-10 finish would be awesome.”
Fadden Racing will be aggressively seeking additional sponsorship to continue fielding cars for Polewarczyk in the series at least through the first half of the season. Anybody interested in sponsorship opportunities with Fadden Racing can contact car owner Mike Olsen firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 150 at Greenville-Pickens Speedway will take the green flag on Saturday, March 27th at 8 p.m. with qualifying scheduled for 6 p.m.
