TC Daily Pit Stop: Five Drivers Starting in Rear for Xfinity Race at Daytona; Kligerman Returning to Big Machine in 2024; Sieg Lands New Partner
TC Daily Pit Stop: Friday, August 25th, 2023
This weekend’s pre-qualifying inspection for the NASCAR Xfinity Series was busier than usual, apparently, as five different drivers had multiple failures on Thursday at Daytona International Speedway.
Per NASCAR, five different drivers ran into issues during inspection on Thursday, that will likely alter their chances of winning the Wawa 250 at Daytona.
Justin Allgaier (#7), Jeb Burton (#22), and Parker Retzlaff (#31) will have to start Friday’s 100-lap contest from the rear of the field, and serve a pass-through penalty on the opening lap, while also losing their pit selection for next week at Darlington.
Jordan Anderson (#27) and Ryan Sieg (#39) each had multiple failures in inspection, and will not be permitted to qualify, have to start at the rear, and serve a pass-through penalty, while also losing pit selection for Darlington.
Parker Kligerman isn’t budging from his full-time ride in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, announcing he’ll return to the Big Machine Racing No. 48 Chevrolet for the 2024 season.
“Parker Kligerman has done a fantastic job for us this year,” said Scott Borchetta, owner of Big Machine Racing. “His experience behind the wheel, and his amazing profile as an ambassador for our sport and our Big Machine Vodka SPIKED Coolers brand, provides all the fuel we need for next year. Let’s Go! 2024 is gonna be BIG.”
SciAps, a long-time partner of former RSS Racing driver CJ McLaughlin, will jump onto the No. 39 RSS Racing Ford Mustang for the remainder of the season, Ryan Sieg announced on Wednesday.
The company, which jumped onto the No. 28 Ford Mustang at the last-minute at Michigan International Speedway, and has sponsored McLaughin throughout his time with the organization, will adorn its usual white, black and red colors starting at Daytona.
