North Highlands, Calif. -- 2009 NASCAR Camping World Series West rookie Phil Dugan of Boise, ID will look to begin his late season points push as the series heads to Toyota Speedway at Irwindale Saturday night for a 200 lapper.

Dugan, a Drive for Diversity participant, is looking forward to attacking the half-mile oval in Irwindale, Calif. for the "King Taco 200."

Dugan currently sits 16th in the standings, despite missing two of the seven events so far campaigned this season.

Rob Dixon's RTD Motorsports, Inc. is currently ranked 11th in the owners standings while making six of the first seven races held.

The 21 year-old driver is coming off of a 21st place finish at the winding Infineon Raceway, and an 11th place effort at Douglas County Speedway. His other three starts this season were with his family-owned Dynamic Motorsports.

Both Dugan and the entire RTD Motorports team is hopeful for their first top-five finish of 2009 in the #34 DJ Safety Chevrolet.

Saturday's 200 lap event will get started at 8:38 p.m. with a break at lap 100.
