FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – Mason Diaz is returning to Brandonbilt Motorsports to compete in the NASCAR Xfinity Series Alsco 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 25.
Diaz will drive the team’s No. 86 Chevrolet Camaro in the 11th race of the season.
Diaz has two previous starts in the Xfinity Series, where he finished 18th in his debut at Richmond (Va.) Raceway last September and a 36th-place finish after succumbing to a mechanical failure in his Richmond return last month.
With a second opportunity this year, the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East competitor has set his sights to impress in his Xfinity Series intermediate debut.
“I am very excited to get back in a Brandonbilt Motorsports Chevrolet next weekend at Charlotte,” said Diaz. “It’s unfortunate that we had a mechanical failure at Richmond while we were running very competitively, but I’m thankful for a second opportunity with the team.
“Brandonbilt Motorsports has showed their ability to run well at the intermediate tracks, so I’m confident that will continue, and I’ll be able to conquer my learning curve in quick fashion.”
Diaz’s efforts for Charlotte will be supported by longtime partners The Sign Shop and Solid Rock Carriers. Additional support for Diaz’s Xfinity Series run include Prince William Marina and Trebor Yelgab Enterprises.
“I’m very thankful for the support of my marketing partners,” added Diaz. “The Sign Shop and Solid Rock Carriers have been with me for a long time and their continued support is appreciated. But without their support and Prince William Marina and Trebor Yelgab Enterprises a lot of my racing in 2019, including Charlotte would not be possible.”
