Kevin Swindell Joins Forces With Davis,

Former Open Wheel Driver Finds Home In Stock Cars
Series PR Report
Kevin Swindell, the winner of the 2010 Chili Bowl Midget Nationals, will compete for the K&N Pro Series East championship this season with Dave Davis Motorsports, Curb/Agajanian Motorsports, and Curb Records.
Swindell is a former open-wheel racing regular having captured victories in prestigious USAC National Midget Series races such as The Night Before the 500 at O’Reilly Raceway Park at Indianapolis and the Knoxville Midget Nationals at the famed Knoxville Raceway. He is also the youngest feature race winner in World of Outlaws Sprint Car history.
Now the full-time driver of the No. 9 Curb Records Chevrolet, the 21 year-old Germantown, Tenn. native has made five career East Series starts with a best finish of third coming at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in 2009.
“I’m really happy that this deal came together with Dave and can’t wait to compete for a Stock Car championship,” said Swindell, the son of three-time World of Outlaws champion Sammy Swindell. “Competing in NASCAR has been a goal of mine since I started racing. This is a fun series with a lot of good teams and I think this team is capable of winning races and winning a championship.”
All five of Swindell’s starts in the East Series have come from behind the wheel of a Dave Davis-owned entry. He also competed for Mike Curb in the USAC National Midget Series through a partnership with NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne. Davis, a veteran car owner, has championship aspirations for his new full-time driver.
“Every time we’ve had Kevin in the car, we’ve had a great chance of winning and, really, if a few things in the three races we ran him last year went just a little bit differently, we could have been three-for-three on wins,” said Davis. “Now, we’ve got him for a full year. I’m sure we’ll finally get our first win and then some, but I really think this team can be a champion by season’s end."
Swindell will begin his 10-race campaign this Saturday at South Carolina’s Greenville-Pickens Speedway.
