OWENS MAKES ROAD RACING DEBUT - After seven years of competing on ovals, Alli Owens will make her first road course start in Sunday's Loud Energy Drink 150 at the New Jersey Motorsports Park. Prior to joining the ARCA RE/MAX Series in 2008, Owens, 20, raced on the short tracks of Florida and North Carolina.

"I know this race is going to be a lot different from what I'm used to, but I'm always up for a challenge," said Owens. "Our goal is realistic - to finish on the lead lap. If I don't abuse my transmission or brakes and focus on hitting my marks, I know we can do it." This race also marks the first road course event for DGM Racing, which fields the No. 12 ElectrifyingCareers.com Chevrolet for Owens.

"We are very well prepared for this race," said team owner Mario Gosselin. "Our equipment is top notch and so is our pit crew."

Owens prepared for this race by completing the Advanced Road Racing Course at the Bondurant School of High Performance Driving. Also, in March she tested a V8 StockCar Road Racing Series car at the historic Sebring International Raceway.
