MOORESVILLE, N.C. – BJ McLeod Motorsports announced Tuesday that Mason Massey would return to the team’s driver lineup for the upcoming NASCAR Xfinity Series season.
Massey will make his season debut at his home track Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Ga., on March 20 during the EchoPark 250. He is scheduled to compete in at least a dozen races for the team throughout the year while also competing in a part-time dirt late model schedule.
“We’re thrilled to have Mason (Massey) return to our team,” said team owner B.J. McLeod. “Mason showed a lot of promise last year and I think he will surprise people this season. He has a very diverse racing resume and has proven to be a very well rounded race car driver. It’ll be another fun year for our 99 team with Mason a part of the driver lineup.”
BJ McLeod Motorsports will field three full-time NASCAR Xfinity Series entries this year. In addition, B.J. and Jessica McLeod have partnered with Matt Tifft to form Live Fast Motorsports, which will operate under the charter that Tifft and B.J. McLeod obtained alongside Joe Falk. The team will field the No. 78 Ford Mustang in the NASCAR Cup Series with a strategic partnership with Stewart-Haas Racing.
“Last season was a dream come true,” said Massey. “To be given the opportunity to compete at this level of stock car racing is something that I dreamed about for a long time, and to be given the opportunity to continue racing at this level is so special to me. B.J. and Jessica (McLeod) have made an even larger commitment and investment into NASCAR racing this offseason with the purchase of the NASCAR Cup Series team with Matt Tifft. As a driver, this is awesome to see and even more awesome to be a part of. I can’t wait to get on track at Atlanta in a few weeks and get to work.”
