Much like last year Jonathan will be in the Pioneer booth on Saturday afternoon signing autographs and taking pictures.
“This is a great way to kick off 2012,” said Jonathan. “Not only will fans get the chance to see all of our hard work getting the car ready for competition, but I’ll also get to meet with the fans and tell them about the great companies both Pioneer and Kriner are.”
Jonathan will have pictures available for fans at his car in the Kriner booth and the autograph session at the Pioneer booth. Fans can also get a look at the 2012 URC schedule that Jonathan plans to run, as well as the USAC Eastern Swing Jonathan plans of running for the third consecutive year.
