K&N Pro Series East
Schedule Announced
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – NASCAR has announced the 2010 schedule for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East that include a total of 10 events across eight states. “The NASCAR K&N Pro Series continues to visit key markets and top race tracks up and down the East Coast,” said George Silbermann, NASCAR Managing Director of Racing Operations. “The diverse schedule should provide for an exciting season of racing and an excellent opportunity for NASCAR’s rising stars to gain experience.”
 The 2010 season will be highlighted by three companion events with the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. New Hampshire Motor Speedway will have its traditional events on June 25 and Sept. 17 in Loudon, N.H., while the champion will once again be crowned at Dover (Del.) International Speedway on Sept. 24.
 New to the K&N Pro Series East schedule in 2010 will be the high-banked half mile of Gresham Motorsports Park. The Jefferson, Ga., track is on the schedule for Aug. 28.
 A pair of familiar venues will also return to the K&N Pro Series East schedule in 2010. Historic Martinsville (Va.) Speedway played host to the NASCAR Nationwide and K&N Pro Series East – then known as the Busch and Busch North Series – for combination races in 1989 and 1990, and a return engagement is slated for June 6. And after a five-year absence, Lee USA Speedway will welcome back the East for a date on July 30. The .375-mile oval was the site of 16 K&N Pro Series East from 1992-2004.
 The K&N Pro Series East and West will converge on Iowa Speedway for the fourth year in a row for the prestigious combination race on May 23 in Newton, Iowa. The first three editions of the event have attracted also NASCAR Sprint Cup Series standouts Kevin Harvick, Kasey Kahne and Kyle Busch.
 Other 2010 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East schedule highlights include:
 • The 24th season of the K&N Pro Series East will commence at Greenville (S.C.) Pickens Speedway on March 27, two weeks earlier than last year. It will mark the fifth season in a row the half-mile track has played host to the East.
 • April 3 will see South Boston (Va.) Speedway bring the K&N Pro Series East in for a doubleheader with the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour. The venerable .4-mile oval has held East races since 2007. This will be the earliest that South Boston has been on the calendar.
 • The 1.53-mile road course at Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, Conn., will return to the schedule on July 3 for the 18th time since 1993. The race had been run in mid-August the two previous seasons.
 • The Martinsville and Lime Rock races will be doubleheaders with the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour.
