East Crown Wide Open As 2011 Season Launches At Greenville
Host of newcomers set to challenge returnees
With the departure of two-time defending champion Ryan Truex to the NASCAR Nationwide Series, the chase for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East crown will be wide open in 2011. That journey will begin on Saturday, March 26 with the Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 150 at Greenville (S.C.) Pickens Speedway.
Among the title contenders that return from a year ago, Brett Moffitt is the head of the class. The Grimes, Iowa driver's third season in the series figures to be his best. After a third-place effort in the final standings as a rookie in 2009, and a runner-up finish to Truex a year ago, Moffitt has the experience to go along with the talent to be a championship favorite. He has also moved over to Michael Waltrip Racing and into the seat vacated by Truex, which can only enhance his chances for a title.
What To Watch For
The 2011 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East season-opener at Greenville Pickens Speedway shapes up to be similar to those of recent seasons past with a number of new teams, a lot of new faces and plenty of storylines to keep an eye on.
