• Ryan Preece, who brought home a seventh-place finish at
Atlanta Motor Speedway earlier this season with JRM, will
be returning to the No. 8 team this weekend.
• The Connecticut native has made two previous NXS starts
at Fontana, bringing home a best finish of ninth in 2018.
• Preece will drive the same chassis this weekend that he did
at Atlanta, where it finished within the top 10 in all three
stages of the event.
• Velveeta, featuring Shells and Cheese, will decorate
Preece’s Camaro at Auto Club. Saturday’s event marks the
paint scheme’s only race this season.
“I’m really excited to get to Auto Club Speedway and have
the opportunity to drive the No. 8 Velveeta Chevrolet. Auto
Club Speedway is such a unique racetrack in how wide it is
and how the tire fall off is with the older racing surface.
There are going to be guys running the top and running the
bottom and everywhere in between. I only have a handful
of starts there in the Xfinity Series, but I’m so grateful to
the entire JR Motorsports organization for the opportunity
to be able to run the No. 8 and score a top finish.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
