WELCOME, N.C. – Joey Coulter will make his NASCAR Nationwide Series debut Saturday at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Coulter will drive the No. 21 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet backed by Sherin Williams at the 1.5-mile oval in Concord, N.C.
Sherwin Williams, a family-owned organization based in Cleveland, Ohio, has maintained a relationship with RCR since 2000, serving as an associate sponsor over the years with a presence on a majority of RCR’s NASCAR Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series entries.
“Joey has done a great job in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series so he’s earned the opportunity to make his Nationwide Series debut this week,” said team owner Richard Childress. “We also appreciate the folks at Sherwin Williams for expanding their partnership with RCR to back Joey in this important next step in his driving career.”
Coulter, 21, is currently in his second full season of NASCAR Camping World Truck Series competition for RCR. Last year he won Sunoco Rookie of the Year Award in the series, earning five top-five and 13 top-10 finishes. RCR’s sophomore driver currently sits 10th in the 2012 Camping World Truck Series driver championship point standings with two top-10 finishes in the first five events.
“I’m really excited to be given the opportunity to run in the Nationwide Series with RCR this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway,” said Coulter. “I can’t thank RCR and everyone that has helped me grow as a driver over the past two years enough. It’s an honor to be able to represent Sherwin Williams in the Nationwide Series and for them to be a part of my debut.”
