The Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway will be a special weekend for B.J. McLeod Motorsports. On April 14th, 2018, B.J. will race in his 75th NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) Race. The sponsors and team are over joyed of this achievement of their owner/ driver.
B.J.’s racing career started when he was 3 racing ATV’s. He transitioned in his racing career to Go-carts at 5 years old and dominated the track with over 300 wins and 18 championships at regional, state and national levels. The driver from Florida continued to let his passion for motorsports drive him. He started stock car racing at 13 years old. In 1997, McLeod added another impressive accomplishment to his record; he was the youngest driver to win his first Super Late Model race at Orlando Speed World. McLeod’s success in Super Late Models with over 100 wins continued to fuel his dream to race in NASCAR.
Be sure to tune into the Fitzgerald Gilder Kits 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway at 1:00pm to witness this historic day in B.J.’s career.
B.J. will be driving the #78 car and Tommy Joe Martins will be in BJMM’s second car the #8.
"Awesome to have some decals on this car for a change," Martins said. "Seriously this is a big deal for us. Ken Gilreath & I have worked hard to put all this together, & I can't thank him enough. It's neat to have Knoxville companies on this car for a home race at Bristol. BJ McLeod Motorsports has come such a long way since last season - it's cool to see some of that hard work being rewarded."
Martins has run four races in the #8 car this season with a 27th place average finish, nearly four positions better than the #78 car he drove for BJMM in 2017. In his only Xfinity start at Bristol Motor Speedway, Martins qualified & finished 33rd. The Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 starts at 1:00 ET April 14th on FS1. – Martins PR
