Auggie Vidovich II (born February 20, 1981) is a driver who has raced in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.[1]


Vidovich was born in Lakeside, California. Vidovich has competed in the Elite Division Southwest Series for several years. He had a NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series (now Camping World Truck Series) start in 1998 and two starts in 1999.[1] He won the Southwest Series championship in 2003, and finished second in 2000, 2001, and 2005. In 2005 Vidovich won the Toyota All-Star Challenge. At the end of the season, Vidovich tried out for Roush Racing's Craftsman Truck Series team in the TV show, Driver X, but was not selected.

In the spring of 2006, Roush decided to hire Vidovich to run one Truck race in place of David Ragan. Midway through the 2006 season, Vidovich was signed to pilot the #4 Geico Dodge Charger for the Biagi Brothers in the Busch Series, and recorded a best finish of 15th at the Milwaukee Mile. He raced in 21 of 35 events and finished 33rd in the season points.[1] In 2007, Vidovich was to have remained with Biagi-DenBeste Racing, but the team shut down because of lack of funding. He raced in one NASCAR K&N Pro Series West race in 2008.[1] In 2009, Vidovich qualified Jack Roush's 60 car for a number of races for Carl Edwards in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, so Edwards could focus on Cup events and still run for the championship. In 2010, he raced in four West races; he won the Irwindale Speedway race and finished fourth at Phoenix International Raceway.[1]
