You may have seen Robert Pawlowski spending most of his days farming 1,500 acres of land in Verona, but today he’ll be making his first start in NASCAR‘s K&N Pro East Series at Watkins Glen.

This weekend be sure to cheer on Bob in his 32 Channel race car. He hopes Friday is just the first of several NASCAR appearances. Also, Bob is the only Central New driver registered for race weekend at Watkins Glen.

According to CNY Central, Bob first started racing back in 2010 when he brought his Chevrolet Camaro to track days. Soon after he started taking lessons from the Skip Barber Racing School and racing in a vintage series. As he began to build his racing resume, his quest for NASCAR started to become a reality:

To race in NASCAR’s K&N Pro Series, a driver needs to demonstrate they have enough racing experience to hold their own. After reviewing Pawlowski’s racing resume, NASCAR gave its blessing for him to race on what the sport calls road courses: tracks with left and right turns. Watkins Glen is one of those tracks.

Pawlowski, who’s 50, hopes that his age will be an advantage over the younger drivers:

“The race is going to be a patience game and I hope my patience, being older, is going to be a key for me,” Pawlowski said.

We wish our local driver the best of luck.
