Joining Chastain at JD Motorsports is Xfintiy Series Rookie Ryan Preece who drove for Premium Motorsports in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in the later races of the 2016 season. Preece is also the 2013 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Series Champion while being runner up in 2012, 2014, and last season! Ryan Preece can certainly wheel a vehicle with four wheels and I certainly expect nothing less in 2016 with JD Motorsports. Ryan will make his 4th Start in the NASCAR Xfinity Series at Daytona next month.
Series Veteran Eric McClure will join JD Motorsports to drive the team's #0 Chevrolet in the season-
opener Feb. 20 at Daytona International Speedway. Todd Myers will be crew chief. Reynolds Wrap will be McClure's sponsor. JDM plans to field the #0 cars throughout the season and is actively pursuing driver/sponsor partnerships going forward. With this lineup going into Daytona expect much success with this team and drivers maybe even having one in the Final Four come Homestead. (Koelle,2016)
David Ragan is coming off a wild 2016 where he drove a total of 3 different rides. Starting in Daytona with Front Row Motorsports, Atlanta through Talladega in Kyle Busch's #18, and beginning at Kansas and ending with the Organization at Homestead in Michael Waltrip Racing's #55 entry. David's best finish in 2016 was behind the wheel of Kyle Busch's #18 at Martinsville where he finished 5th.
After making his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Debut at Phoenix with BK Racing, Matt DiBenedetto landed the #83 team in The Rookie of The Year Chase against Brett Moffitt where he finished runner up. Matt had a very successful season and will return with the organization in 2016 with Veteran teammate David Ragan. Look for Ragan and DiBenedetto to work together come 2016 and see some excellent racing out of the BK Racing camp in 2016! (Koelle,2016)
