Warn Looking to Close Season on High Note

MJ2 Racing Driver Jim Warn Likes his Chances in Final Short Track Event of the Season

AURORA, OR. (September 24, 2009) Jim Warn from Aurora, Oregon and driver of the GPI Performance.com Chevrolet in the NASCAR Camping World Series-West is looking to cap his sophomore season with a top performance Saturday night at All American Speedway in Roseville, CA. The event will be the finale for the NCWS-West as Warn look to solidify a top ten point's finish. Warn had a career best finish of second in the last short track event of the season at Colorado and will bring the same set up for Roseville.

Back in the spring when the NCWS visited All American, Warn had a top five car early in the race but suffered a mechanical failure when his Chevrolet started to overheat. A lot has happened over the course of the season and that finish is a distant memory for the 26-year entrepreneur. "It was a tough start to the season this year but we have continually improved," Warn said. "I am confident we have a top five car for the race this weekend so we'll just see how it goes."

While Warn has experienced the ups and downs of racing in the NCWS, he is very optimistic about finishing this season on a high note. "We had some mechanical issues this year but we are so much more competitive," Warn offered. "We have a lot of dedicated guys on the team and they give 100% effort all the time and it would be great to finish the season strong for them."

NASCAR's oldest series in the west has been a challenge for Warn but one that he has taken straight on. "I have really learned a lot and enjoyed the competition," Warn stated. "We have not had the finishes we know we can produce but that is part of the challenge. All American presents a lot of challenge for the teams but I have learned how to drive the track and I look forward to the race. The fans are great and I know it will be a good show for them and a great way to finish the year."

Warn is currently in the ninth position in the point standings after twelve races, 161-points behind eighth place but more importantly is 145 points ahead of tenth so just by starting on Saturday, Warn will solidify a top ten points finish. In twelve starts this season the 26 year old competitor has five top ten finishes with a best finish of 2nd at Colorado back in August.

Warn drives for MJ2 Racing and is sponsored by GPI Performance.Com. The car is powered by a Chevrolet NASCAR Spec Engine built by Brad "Freight Train" Peters and sits atop a Hopkins chassis. Warn is in his second year of competition in the NCWS with nine top ten finishes in 25 career NCWS starts with a career best finish of second.
