Ryan Preece is set to complete the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season by driving the No. 98 Chevrolet for Premium Motorsports in the four remaining races of the season, beginning with Sunday’s race at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway.
“These last four races will be a new challenge for me that I can’t wait to get at,” Preece said. “I have always wanted to race at the larger tri-ovals and look forward to that at Texas and Homestead. I really appreciate the opportunity given to me by Premium Motorsports and the support of longtime friend Tommy Baldwin. I am just a guy who races the weekly/touring series a few times a week and trying to move up the ladder in this sport. I am focused on doing a great job for the XYIENCE folks and everyone associated with this No. 98 effort.”
XYIENCE Energy Drink, a subsidiary of Big Red, will be the primary sponsor on Preece’s No. 98 for the Nov. 8 race at Texas Motor Speedway near Fort Worth and at Phoenix International Raceway on Nov. 15. It will be an associate sponsor of Preece in the season-finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 22.
Preece made his Sprint Cup Series debut earlier this season at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon and finished 32nd. The 2013 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion also has three starts in NASCAR’s Xfinity Series.
