Ross Chastain Will Run in First-Ever NASCAR Xfinity Series Race at Sonoma
DGM Racing announced on Tuesday a new partnership with Skip Barber Racing School that will feature Ross Chastain as the driver of the No. 91 entry at Sonoma Raceway and the Indy Road Course. The partnership highlights Skip Barber as the world's largest automotive education and entertainment company offering driving and racing schools at the finest tracks in America.
Chastain is no stranger to success at Sonoma. Last year he finished 4th in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race. He also finished 7th in his previous two NASCAR Cup Series starts at the famed raceway in Northern California. Chastain finished 4th for DGM Racing in last year's race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
"Racing on road courses is something I have only done in NASCAR. I didn't grow up turning left and right, so I have had to learn and adapt quickly. I recognized early on that I needed as many laps as possible. Skip Barber has been a great way for me to get laps, and I am excited to announce this partnership for Sonoma and the Indy Road Course," said Ross Chastain.
Skip Barber Racing School has developed more winning racers than any other school. Their alumni have taken the podium in all facets of motorsports, including NASCAR, IndyCar, SCCA, World Challenge, and IMSA. Skip Barber features Driving Academies at legendary venues across the country, including Circuit of the Americas, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Laguna Seca, Lime Rock Park, New Jersey Motorsports Park, Road Atlanta, Sebring Raceway, Sonoma Raceway, and Virginia International Raceway.
"We've been fortunate to have some of the best NASCAR drivers in the world train and race with us over the years," said Anthony Demonte, CEO of the Skip Barber Racing School. "We're proud of what Ross has accomplished in his career, and we look forward to helping him to become a NASCAR Cup Series Champion."
