Over the course of the 2009 season, Lagasse will pilot the No. 11 America’s Incredible Pizza Company Toyota full time and compete for Rookie-of-the-Year (ROTY) honors. NASCAR’s National and Regional Touring Series select’s a ROTY by looking at points and conduct. Past NASCAR Nationwide Series ROTY winners include Carle Edwards and Kyle Busch.

Paul Wolfe is CJM Racing’s America’s Incredible Pizza Company Race Team’s new crew chief. “Paul brings a wealth of knowledge to the table,” said CJM’s Media Relations Manager Shayna Keller. “He has worked with past NASCAR ROTY’s and will lead Scott in the No. 11 car.”

One thing that has remained constant for CJM Racing is its use of K&N products. “K&N provides us with excellent power and filtration,” said Keller. “It also protects our engine on the race track.”

The 2009 NASCAR season opens at Daytona International Speedway on January 24th. The event, known as Speedweeks is considered the Super Bowl of racing and includes, the 24-Hour Rolex race, Gatorade Duels, Bud Shootout, the Nationwide Series, the Camping World Series and the Sprint Cup Series (Daytona 500).
