WELCOME, N.C. – Anthony Alfredo will join Richard Childress Racing’s NASCAR Xfinity Series program next season to share driving duties of the No. 21 Chevrolet Camaro with Myatt Snider.

“It’s an honor to have the opportunity to compete in the Xfinity Series for Richard Childress Racing in 2020,” said Alfredo. “It’s every racer’s dream to drive for such an iconic organization like RCR. I’m very thankful for everyone that has helped put this together, including my family, friends and our partners. This is a career-making opportunity for me, and I plan to take full advantage of it.”

Alfredo, a 20-year old native of Ridgefield, Conn., spent the 2018 season racing full-time in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. He earned one win at South Boston Speedway and ended the year ranked fifth in the series standings.

This year he moved to the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series with DGR-Crosley, competing in 13 races and earning two top-10 finishes.

“I’ve watched Anthony drive in the Truck series this past season and I’m certain he’ll do well in our Xfinity Series cars,” said Richard Childress, chairman and CEO of Richard Childress Racing. “RCR has had a lot of success over the years producing young, talented drivers through our development program. I believe that Anthony will fit right into that same mold.”
