Taylor Barton is gearing up to race in the 2011 NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown at the Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, Calif. on Jan. 28 and 29. This will be Barton’s biggest race of the past season and will also be a pivotal race in solidifying Taylor’s continued NASCAR success. He is sponsored in this race by Full Tilt Poker.Net.
The race is put on by K&N Pro Series West, a regional stock-car racing division of NASCAR, and is NASCAR’s top short-track showcase. The race is often called the “Daytona 500 of short-track racing.” Barton will race with Gene Price Motorsports, the team which won the last K&N Pro Series West race in Phoenix, Ariz.
Many large names have entered in the race to date including D.J. Kennington, Bobby Santos, Burt Myers, German Quiroga, Keith Rocco and three-time NASCAR K&N Pro Series West winner Eric Holmes.
Media and fans are encouraged to attend and cheer on Barton to support his efforts in bringing home a top-placing finish.
