Top Gear Philippines Philippine Car News - Enzo Pastor invited to run in NASCAR regional stock car series

Perhaps thanks to Enzo Pastor's fourth-place finish in the second of two races in the first round of the 2014 Euro-Racecar NASCAR series in Nogaro, France, in April, the Filipino race driver is now being invited to join "a regional stock car racing series owned and run by the US arm of NASCAR."

Pastor has reportedly been invited to participate in the K&N Pro Series East by Andy Woolgar, team manager of Creation Cope Racing, through Enzo's father Tom Pastor, who is the president of the Philippine Formula Autosports Foundation.

"We are seriously looking to work with experienced road course and top-performing Asian drivers because we feel you will have an advantage, not to mention a great opportunity to showcase your talent and your sponsors," the invitation to the younger Pastor from Woolgar reportedly said.

The K&N Pro Series East races that Pastor has been invited to run in are the August 24 race to be held at the Virginia International Raceway in Alton, Virginia, and the October 18 race at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia.

According to Woolgar, the invitation for Pastor to race in the regional NASCAR series is no small feat since he will be exposed to an even wider audience, particularly since it includes "an hour-long televised weekly show for his skills to be on full display."

For his run in the K&N Pro Series East, Pastor hopes to retain his sponsors in the Euro-Racecar NASCAR series, like the Department of Tourism, Petron Corporation, and Resorts World Manila.

How about we get behind the lone Filipino race driver who actually has an inside track into the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series?
