Lowndes was one of the 28 Supercars drivers who took to the track in Austin, Texas, as part of the 2013 international Championship.
Driving his #888 Red Bull Holden Commodore, as he will tonight on a virtual version of the circuit, Lowndes finished second in the opening three races and fifth in the final race of the only US meet held in Supercars history.
Lowndes recalled his time at COTA, saying local fans knew more about the Championship than expected.
