MOORESVILLE, N.C. – NASCAR Next member Anthony Alfredo will join DGR-Crosley next season for a part-time schedule in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series.

Alfredo will compete with support from his partners Ceco Building Systems, Meccanic Shop North and Oxford Energy Group.

The 19-year-old Ridgefield, Conn. native most recently competed in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) where he finished fifth in overall point standings in his rookie season. Alfredo ended the 2018 season with a win at South Boston Speedway, five top-five and nine top-10 finishes during the 14-race season.

Before moving to the K&N East ranks, Alfredo raced late model stock cars in the CARS Tour, where he collected two wins and finished second in overall point standings.

“Going to DGR-Crosley next season is a huge opportunity for me,” said Alfredo. “To be able to work with David [Gilliland], who’s not only the owner but also someone who has a lot of racing experience, is going to be very beneficial. They have a great group of hardworking knowledgeable people in their shop which is going to make the transition to Trucks a lot smoother for me.

“DGR-Crosley has had a lot of success at every level they’ve competed in, and it’s a dream come true to be able to race for them at the national level,” Alfredo continued. “Making it to the Cup Series is the end goal, and I feel like I’m one step closer to where I want to be. I can’t thank everyone who has made this possible and supported me throughout my career enough, especially my family and sponsors who continually believe in me.”

Team co-owner David Gilliland is looking forward to seeing the newest addition to DGR-Crosley’s 2019 driver lineup on track.

“I’m excited to have Anthony on board next season,” said Gilliland. “I watched him all year in the K&N Series and he did a great job. He’s a talented racer and has shown that he has the drive to keep getting better. He’s a great fit for our program at DGR-Crosley and going to do a very good job for us next season in the Truck Series.”

Alfredo is expected to make his NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series debut at Atlanta Motor Speedway. A full schedule will be released at a later date.
