Moses Smith - Daytona 500 of Short-Track Racing

Coming off his best season ever in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West, the three-time Most Popular driver, Moses Smith is looking forward to making his fourth start in the NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown. This year’s K&N Pro Series Showdown main event will be divided into three sections – two 100-lap segments preceding a 25-lap dash to the finish.

Smith spoke enthusiastically after a recent test at the Toyota Speedway. “We tried a bunch of different stuff. There is a new body on the car and the team has spent a lot of time during their short off-season getting the car turned around!

Irwindale is an awesome facility with three grooves - the racing will be three sometimes four cars wide. It is important to have a car capable of the long run, a hundred laps, to get you close to the front; yet be ready for the twenty-five lap finish. I can’t wait to get racing next week.”

Two practice sessions and qualifying for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series are set for Friday, January 28 at the Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, California. Drivers will have an additional opportunity to qualify for the all-star feature through the 50-lap NASCAR K&N Pro Series Open set for 8:30 p.m. on Friday night. The eighth running of the K&N Pro Series Showdown main event will be held on January 29th.

Both days will be televised live on SPEED Channel at 10 p.m. ET. The coverage will be anchored by Rick Allen and Phil Parsons in the booth, with Dick Berggren and Jim Tretow covering action in the pits. The event will also be covered with lap-by-lap coverage on the NASCAR Home Tracks website.
