Former NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Scott Riggs has landed a ride with the RAB Racing Nationwide Series team for the Camping World 300 at Datyona International Speedway, the team announced Monday.
RAB fielded the No. 09 Ford for John Wes Townley in 2009, but Townley and sponsor Zaxby's went to Richard Childress Racing for this season.
"We are thrilled to have Scott in our car at Daytona," stated Robby Benton, co-owner and general manager of RAB Racing with Brack Maggard. "Scott’s experience in all three levels of competition in this sport and the solid foundation of this team will produce a great combination for success. We’re on track to deliver great results for the 2010 season-opener at Daytona and hope to build the partnership between RAB Racing and Scott Riggs to run a full 2010 schedule."
Riggs was the series' Raybestos Rookie of the Year in 2002 and has four victories in what was known as the Busch Series. He last ran in the series in 2007.
"I’m really looking forward to making my debut with RAB Racing at Daytona," Riggs said. "I’ve been out of the Nationwide Series for two years now and I honestly don’t think there is a better team for me to be involved with. RAB Racing is an independent team of dedicated individuals that have the same goals and have invested themselves in what it takes to win. It’s an honor to be partnering with such a driven team for such a prestigious race."
