MOORESVILLE, N.C. – DGR-Crosley announced Thursday that NASCAR Xfinity Series rookie Anthony Alfredo will rejoin the team for the upcoming ARCA Menards Series race at Michigan Int’l Speedway.

Alfredo will drive the No. 17 Ford Fusion on Aug. 9. Blake Bainbridge will be Alfredo’s crew chief for the race.

Alfredo raced for DGR-Crosley in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series for 13 races in 2019. He earned two top-10 finishes in the Truck Series before moving up to the NASCAR Xfinity Series this season, where he has scored one top-five and six top-10 finishes in 10 starts to date.

“Since I have a few weeks off from the NASCAR Xfinity Series, I am very excited to strap into an ARCA Menards Series car for DGR-Crosley at Michigan as I make just my third start in the series,” Alfredo said. “It will be a pleasure to work with the men and women at DGR-Crosley again. I am very thankful for David Gilliland and everyone on the team for giving me the opportunity to compete in this race. I know they are working hard to bring me a great car so we can have a shot to win. I plan on making everyone proud by having a successful weekend and ultimately taking home the checkered flag.”

“We are pleased to have Anthony back with our team next weekend at Michigan for the ARCA race,” said David Gilliland, co-owner of DGR-Crosley. “We really enjoyed working with him last year and I think he’ll do a great job for us.”
