Legge, 38, will be back behind the wheel of the No. 15 JD Motorsports Chevrolet for her first NASCAR start on an oval.

She tweeted the news on Monday:

 

Previously, Legge made two NASCAR starts this season -- both at road courses. Her debut came at Mid-Ohio where she finished 30th after a late-race incident. She then finished 14th in a respectable run at Road America.

Her racing background includes both single-seaters such as IndyCar and Formula E, but most recently, she's been competing full-time as a GTD driver in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar championship.
