MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Premium Motorsports announced Wednesday that Brennan Poole will pilot the No. 15 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE full time in the NASCAR Cup Series in 2020.

The upcoming season will mark Poole’s Cup Series debut.

“I’ve been working towards this moment since I was five and feel blessed to have the caliber of people surrounding me that I have in this next chapter of my racing career,” Poole said. “I look forward to the opportunity to showcase our sponsor partners, both new and existing, who are supporting me at the highest level of NASCAR competition.”

One of racing’s top emerging talents, in 2015 Poole made his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, scoring a top-10 in his first NASCAR start.

Poole then competed full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in the 2016 and 2017 seasons, where he accumulated eight top five and 36 top 10 finishes, advancing deep into the playoffs in both championship seasons.

In 2019, Poole ran a limited schedule in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series, where he finished second to 2019 NASCAR Cup Series champion Kyle Busch while contending for the win at Charlotte Motor Speedway in May

On his way to securing a seat in NASCAR’s premier series, Poole earned the designation as “The Bull” for charging to the front of any series in which he competed.

“I’m very happy to welcome Brennan and his group to the Premium Motorsports family,” said team owner Jay Robinson. “Brennan is a very talented and dedicated young man, I believe he has a very bright future in the NASCAR Cup Series.”
