Whelen Modified points leader looks to make first Sprint Cup start at Loudon
Ryan Preece hopes to make his Sprint Cup debut at New Hampshire Motor Speedway with Tommy Baldwin Racing on September 27.
Preece has three XFINITY Series starts with TBR including two at NHMS. The 24-year-old Kensington, Conn.-native posted a career-high 14th at Loudon in his second start.
“I’m very excited,” Preece told motorsport.com. “I’m really looking forward to it.”
Preece, who won the title in NASCAR’s Whelen Modified Tour in 2013, is the current points leader of the series. He’s scored three wins this season — including last night at Stafford Speedway — five top fives and nine top-10 finishes in 117 starts.
Preece has also campaigned on the Whelen Southern Modified this season where in four starts he’s earned three poles — including at South Boston Speedway where he went on to win in April.
The former NASCAR Next driver will have TBR teammate Alex Bowman to lean on at Loudon next month.
