BJ McLeod Motorsports, Inc.

MOORESVILLE, NC (Monday, February 11, 2019) – After announcing that BJ McLeod Motorsports, Inc (BJMM) will run three fulltime cars in the 2019 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) season, the team has a lot more news to share before heading to Daytona International Speedway, Fla. for the NASCAR Racing Experience 300 on February 16th 2019.

 

The new team headquarters, a 15,000 sq. ft building on Goodwin Circle in Mooresville, NC, purchased August of last year, was remodeled by team owner and McLeod’s wife, Jessica. “BJ and I had a vision in our head for years of what our dream race shop would look like and we quickly jumped at the opportunity when this property hit the market,” Jessica said. The new headquarters for BJMM includes a race simulator area, a full-size gym, and a separate fabrication area.

 

The team is introducing their three Daytona International Speedway driver line-ups and their respected car schemes. Race day: February 16th - NASCAR Racing Experience 300 
Driver of the #78 Toyota Supra, Vinnie Miller:

 

Sponsor: Koolbox & JAS Expedited Trucking, LLC - This will be Vinnie’s 3rd start at Daytona International Raceway. In his previous starts he finished 19th and 20th.

_“I am so thankful for the opportunity to run with BJ McLeod Motorsports this season,” Vinnie Miller said. “BJ and I have already built a friendship prior to my driving for him and after the last few races of 2018 I am ready for a full season in the No. 78. The new shop is amazing! The race simulator room is going to be so beneficial for our pre-race preparations. My teammates and I can hop on the simulator, race each other and then get the feedback from BJ. _

 

“I am so excited that JAS Expedited Trucking is coming on board again for the 2019 season. Tony (Freeland, CEO JAS Expedited Trucking) and I are both from Michigan and have become good friends. I’m looking forward to having them on the No. 78 BJ McLeod Motorsports car this year.”

 

Driver of the #5 Toyota Supra, Matt Mills: 
Sponsor: J.F. Electric - As previously announced, Matt Mills will be racing the number 5 fulltime during the 2019 season. 


“Many reasons to be excited for this upcoming season, returning to BJMM with continuing support from J.F. Electric and Thomson Electric. It was great to give back the #8 to Dale Jr. where it has a special meaning to him, and in return he was kind enough to give over the #5 which is special to me as it was my dad’s motocross number and a number of mine growing up,” Matt said. I am beyond excited to get to Daytona (Daytona International Speedway, Fla) for my first time and race on a track that I once dreamed of running while growing up. Also, can’t thank BJ and Jessica enough for this amazing opportunity,” Matt added.

 

Driver of the #99 Toyota Supra, DJ Kennington: 
Sponsor: Lordco Auto Parts & Castrol Canada - DJ runs full time in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series (Won 2010 and 2012 Pinty's Series Championships). Kennington also competes part-time in Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. 


“I’m happy to be heading back to Daytona and proud to be teaming up with LORDCO Parts & Castrol Canada. And really excited to tackle this new challenge in the NASCAR XFINITY Series with B.J. McLeod Motorsports. I’ve learned a lot at Daytona the last couple of years and working with this team we have a real opportunity for success and to put on a show for all the LORDCO folks that will be here”.

 

In addition to all these exciting changes and Daytona being less than a week away, we are also excited to announce that our “Boss Man”, B.J., will be racing the number 15 for JD Motorsports to start the year in the NXS. “My number one goal is to bring cars back for JD Motorsports and help them keep going. The deal I do with Johnny is really fun, and there’s not much planning between him and I. We just have a good time with it. I don’t know exactly how many races I’m going to run,” BJ said. Depending on the number of races that B.J. runs in the NXS, he could hit the milestone of racing in 100 NXS starts this year.

 

BJMM will take the green flag of the NASCAR Racing Experience 300 at 2:30 p.m. Be sure to tune into FS1, the Motor Racing Network (MRN), or Sirius XM NASCAR Radio to watch or listen to these 120 laps, 300-mile season opener!
