NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Chad McCumbee will make his Nationwide Series debut this weekend, driving the No. 09 RAB Racing Ford at Texas Motor Speedway.
"Texas is a place that I am familiar with," McCumbee said in a press release. "Although this will be my first start in a NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Texas, I’ve had the opportunity to test a Nationwide car. Texas is a fast place that rewards those that take care of their equipment. I’ve run seven truck races there, so I feel like my experience at Texas in a truck will help me a lot this weekend. The track is multi-grooved so there is more than one fast way around."
McCumbee has made 95 truck starts and eight starts in the Sprint Cup Series. He has two top-10 finishes in seven truck starts at Texas.
"This is a great opportunity for me," McCumbee said. "This is group of young, determined, talented individuals just like me so I can’t think of a better team to make my first Nationwide Series start with."
