February 7, 2013 - 6:30pm

MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Cunningham Motorsports has announced that they will be entering selected NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) races during the 2013 season.

The Cunningham organization has signed 16 year old, Austin Wayne Self, from Austin, Texas who will pilot the #77 at Daytona International Speedway February 19, followed by Bristol Motor Speedway in March.  Self’s Daytona debut will be with sponsorship from AM Technical Solutions.  He has signed for a total of seven NKNPSE races with Cunningham Motorsports, as well as 5 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards races.  Self’s first ARCA Series race will be at the .5 mile Toledo Speedway in May. 

Austin plans to complete his 2013 season with 12 NASCAR Late Model races with Sellers Racing. Self competed during the 2012 season in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series in the No. 07 Sport Clips/Big Red Chevy Impala with Sellers Racing. During the 27 race season, Austin earned 1 victory, 13 top-5 finishes and 25 top-10 finishes.  

Anderson Bowen, a 15 year old from Suwanee, Georgia, will be driving for the Penske driver development team at both NKNPSE races at Iowa Speedway, in addition to 3 ARCA Racing Series races, beginning with the March 9th Mobile International Speedway race.  In addition, he will compete in a full Super Late Model racing schedule with his family’s Anderson Bowen Racing team.

During Bowen’s 2012 JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour season, he was awarded the 2012 Rookie of the Year honors. His first Late Model victory in October at Watermelon Capital Speedway (GA,) a few weeks prior to his season finale, gave Bowen confidence. That confidence carried forward into 2013, as he once again took to the Watermelon Capital Speedway in January, finishing 4th in the Super Late Model portion of SpeedFest 2013.

A top-tier team in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards, Cunningham will be working with these two young guns in preparation for full season ARCA championship runs.  Cunningham Motorsports is in negotiations with other drivers in an attempt to fill the seat of the #77 for the remaining 7 races in the 2013 NKNPSE season.
