Sellers Looking For One More Position At All-Star Showdown

By Official Release

For Peyton Sellers, going back to the NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown means going back to the basics.

Sellers, who ran the 2008 NASCAR Camping World Series East for car owner Andy Santerre, will head to the Toyota Speedway at Irwindale with his family-run team. They’re taking the same car that Sellers and Co. drove to a runner-up finish in the 2007 postseason ‘Daytona 500 of short-track racing.’

“I feel really good,” Sellers said. “Last year, the car was decent – don’t get me wrong – but I think we can make it a lot better. It’s going to be a good deal for us.”
