MICHAEL SELF GEARS UP FOR 2010 TOYOTA ALL-STAR SHOWDOWN

PARK CITY, UTAH (January 25, 2010) -- 2010 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West rookie Michael Self makes his 2010 season debut this weekend at the Toyota All-Star Showdown at Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, Calif.

The 19 year-old Park City, UT driver will qualify on Friday with the 225 lap feature slated to be run on Saturday night. Both nights of competition will be aired live on SPEED.

"We have to make it in the show in the first place so the strategy is to focus on getting everything the best we can for those two laps of qualifying," Self said. "After that, it's just a long race where anything can happen. Staying out of trouble and keeping clean is the best strategy any driver can have at a race like this."

Self will be paired with teammate Jamie Dick for a two-car effort through Mike Naake / Motorway Motorsports.

Self plans to make a run for a 2010 series championship in the 12 race K&N Pro Series West. The Toyota All-Star Showdown is a non-points event held annually that pits the best racers from both the K&N Pro Series East and West, as well as racers from other NASCAR touring series and international drivers, in a 225 lap event with over $400,000 in prize monies.

"It's one of the biggest races of the year so everyone will be bringing everything they've got and we won't slouch on bringing our best," Self said. "It's the best competition I'll be up against all year so doing good at this race would be a huge bonus and a big moral booster.
