The NASCAR Nationwide Series last raced two weeks ago at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. In Nevada, Lagasse was forced into a back-up car and started 42nd. He went on to post a NASCAR career high finish of 9th.

“It’s difficult having such a great run in Las Vegas and then having to sit back for two weeks with no racing,” said Lagasse. “The momentum was going strong and I wish we could have stayed at it. On the other hand, I know it’s nice for the guys to spend time home with their families and prepare for a couple of long stretches in our race schedule.”

Lagasse will pilot one of thirty Cup Series cars on one of the hardest short tracks in the sport. The No.11 America’s Incredible Pizza Company Toyota is equipped with K&N products. “K&N provides us with excellent power and filtration on the tracks,” said Media Relations Manager Shayna Keller. “It also protects our engines during the long stretches of racing.”

“This will be my first time racing at Bristol,” said Lagasse. “I think it’s a really cool race track and I’m excited about being here. I grew up short track racing and this is the type of track you dream about going to as a kid. I remember watching the Bristol races on TV and thinking what an awesome place it is.”

Lagasse will live out his dream on television this weekend. The race will air live this Saturday, March 21 at 2:00 pm EST on ABC-TV.
