NASCAR K&N Pro Series Driver Gracin Raz will return to Kern County Raceway Park for the second leg of the west series on Saturday, April 2. Raz will be looking to close out some unfinished work this weekend after experiencing rough luck in his last two events while leading the prestigious Winter Showdown super late model event at Kern County and the opening race for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West in Irwindale.
“In both races, we had a fantastic car that we were confident would be there in the end,” said Raz. “What we experienced is part of racing and can or has happened to any driver. We have moved forward and could not be more ready to return to Kern County.”
At the opening event for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West in Irwindale, Raz qualified just .022 off the pole and led the most laps of the race before getting caught up in what his team believes was a patch of oil resulting a disappointing finish. Driving the No. 27 Montana Tech Ford Fusion for Jefferson Pitts Racing, Raz will be racing the full NASCAR K&N Pro Series West this season in addition to some select races in the east.
