Florida native Fain Skinner will drive Rick Ware Racing's No. 41 Carport Empire Ford Mustang on Saturday night for the running of the Kroger 200 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at the Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis.
Skinner, who has competed in the late model divisions in his home state, looks to show the NASCAR fans why he was a threat each and every week for the past seven years when it came to short track racing.
Making his Nationwide Series debut, Skinner understands that patience is key.
"I got the opportunity to watch the RWR team at Daytona and got a great understanding of how patience plays a key in the race when it comes to the Nationwide Series," Skinner said. "The races are longer and if you can be patient to the end, you give yourself a fighting chance, and that's all that you can ask for."
Owner Ware is excited to have Skinner on board.
"Fain is a great driver who we are proud to give the chance to showcase," Ware said. "He has won everything is there is to win in his divisions and we know he is a great fit with our organization of young, talented drivers and when we tested with him he confirmed our excitement."
Carport Empire, one of the largest distributors of quality carports, carport garages, steel buildings and RV carports in the United States, will be Fain's sponsor.
