Josh Brander, a 23-year-old driver from Rancho Cucamonga, made his debut in the new S2 stock car division at Toyota Speedway at Irwindale. He was driving the same car R.J. Johnson of Canyon Country raced last weekend. Johnson won the race, his first in the S2 stock car division.
Brander, a karting veteran, said he worked out a one-race deal with Race Car Factory, which owns the car. Brander and his dad, Marty, said they are working on a deal to race the car full-time next season.
