NASCAR Truck Series driver Natalie Decker is to move up to the NASCAR Xfinity Series for 2021 having announcing that she will compete in five races starting with the Daytona road course.
The Wisconsin native will drive the No.23 Red Street Records Reaume Brothers Racing prepared Chevrolet Camaro.
Speaking following the announcement, team owner Josh Reaume commented saying:
As a team we have been able to help a lot of drivers make their debut into the NASCAR trucks Series, and now we have the ability to do that with the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Having Natalie make her Xfinity debut at the Daytona Road Course is another exciting step for this team and the direction we are heading. We had some strong runs with Myatt Snider at the road courses last year and we are confident Natalie will do a great job at the Daytona road course to kick off the 2021 season.
Decker scored the best finish for a female driver in the NASCAR Truck Series at Daytona in 2020 where she finished in fifth place.
Speaking about the news, and excited Decker said:
First, I have to say thank you, thank you to all my fans that support me and show me so much love! I love you all! Thank you to Todd DiBenedetto for connecting Natalie Decker LLC and Red Street Records. Thank you, Red Street Records, for believing in me and wanting to be part of this Journey with me. Thank you, RSS, and RBR for the warm welcome into the team. Thank you to Bigfoot Philly Cheesesteaks Beef Jerky for supporting my career and I am excited for our new partnership. Our first race is the Daytona road course, and I could not be any happier, we have Jason Crabb and his new single on the hood of the car. This song is so meaningful to me and the inspiration I get from Jason when I hear this song is unbelievable! I’m excited for this journey and I’m so happy I finally get to share it with all of you!”
