Old Pro … The Mobile 150 weekend will mark Brandon Gdovic’s return to stock car racing. Gdovic, a veteran of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, has accumulated 48 starts since his series debut in 2011, punctuated by a win at Greenville-Pickens Speedway in 2013. In addition to one win, his series’ highlights include nine top-five, and 21 top-10 finishes. 24-year-old Gdovic graduated to the NASCAR XFINITY Series in 2015, posting a career-best finish of 13th at Watkins Glen International in his first race. He spent the season competing in multiple XFINITY Series races while simultaneously taking on the new challenge of sports car racing. The 24-year-old joined Mitchum Motorsports to pilot their Lamborghini Gallardo in the Super Trofeo Series. In 13 starts, Gdovic won top amateur honors 10 times, securing the North American Amateur Championship and the Gallardo World Championship at the World Finals event at Sebring International Raceway. Gdovic’s success in all forms of motorsports caught the attention of the community and he joined the Performance Tech Motorsports’ driver lineup for the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona at the Daytona International Speedway to begin the 2016 season. He will return to K&N Pro Series East competition for his first time since 2014.
Setzer at Mobile … Crew chief of the No. 46 Verizon Toyota Camry, Mark Setzer, will sit atop the pit box for his first time in the K&N Pro Series East at Mobile Speedway. Setzer, though, is no stranger to this role. This season marks his third as crew chief of the Precision Performance Motorsports XFINITY Series effort.
Catch the Action … Saturday’s inaugural K&N Pro Series East race at Mobile Speedway will get underway Saturday, March 12th at 2:00pm CT.

Brandon Gdovic Quotes:
“I am excited about getting back in a K&N Pro Series East car on an oval for the first time since 2014. I’ve never raced at Mobile International Speedway before, but is definitely a pretty quick half mile. Luckily, we were able to go test before the race weekend and got some good data to work from.”
Mark Setzer Quotes:
“I am looking forward to working with Brandon this weekend at Mobile. This race will allow Brandon, the team, and me to work together in preparation for the Bristol XFINITY Series race next month. This will be my first K&N Pro Series race and Brandon’s first race at Mobile but we have a great notebook to reference and test will help us be fully prepared.”
