The second event on the 2012 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East schedule will be at Greenville (S.C.) Pickens Speedway (GPS) on Saturday, March 31 with the Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 150. The seventh annual Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 150 will mark the eighth all-time event for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East at Greenville Pickens Speedway, and the first of two in 2012.

After opening the current campaign with the inaugural visit to the high concrete banks of Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway, the K&N Pro Series East will return to familiar territory at the historic half mile in Pickens County. The series has raced at GPS each year since 2006, which marks the third-longest association among the tracks on the 2012 slate and NASCAR’s top developmental series.

Dylan Kwasniewski is scheduled to make his NASCAR K&N Pro Series East debut. The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West sophomore, Kwasniewski will attempt to make the first of a handful of K&N Pro Series East starts this weekend at GPS.

Kwasniewski registered two wins, two poles and nine top 10s in 13 West races last year to capture "Sunoco Rookie of the Year" honors. He will pilot the No. 20 Toyota for owner Steve deSouza, a vice president at Joe Gibbs Racing. Matt Lucas will serve as Crew Chief.
