Big Machine Racing, the newly formed NASCAR Xfinity Series have announced that Danny Bohn will compete for the team in the season opener on February 13 at Daytona International Speedway in the No.48 Chevrolet Camaro. Speaking following the news, 32 year old Bohn commented saying:
Scott Borchetta and North American Motor Car have been instrumental in supporting me in my journey rising up through the stock car racing ranks. “This is just another step and to have them both on the car for Scott’s debut as a team owner and my Xfinity series debut makes it all the more special to me, especially being at Daytona.
Scott Borchetta, President and CEO of the Big Machine Label Group commented on the news saying:
It’s great to be working with Danny again. “He’s a born racer and he knows how to be around at the end of these very challenging races. Daytona is the great equalizer and it takes skill, patience and staying out of trouble until it’s time to go. If he can do that, and we get a little Lady Luck on our side, we stand to have a very strong debut.
North American Motor Car Chief Operating Officer Andy Hill commented saying:
North American Motor Car is extremely excited to be teamed up with Danny Bohn and Scott Borchetta’s Big Machine Racing No. 48 car for Daytona. “We believe it is going to be a breakout year for Danny and we are extremely proud to be a part of it.”
