LAKE WALES, Fla. – DGM Racing officials have confirmed the return of Alex Labbé for select races during the NASCAR Xfinity Series season.
Labbé will pilot the No. 90 at the Daytona International Speedway opener on Feb. 19 before moving to the No. 36 car for the following three races at Auto Club Speedway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Phoenix Raceway.
Financial support from Labbé’s long-standing partnerships with Can-am, Larue Snowblowers, and VR Victoriaville will allow Labbé to compete in 18 races with DGM Racing.
“I am grateful that these partners continue to support my racing career and development as a driver,” said Labbé. “Can-am and Larue are two of my longest partnerships, and I’m excited they’ll be on board for another year.
“I am so excited to be back with DGM Racing. Although we are scaling back the amount of races this year, I am confident it will allow us to be more competitive and successful as a team in the long run,” Labbé continued. “Mario has supported me for as long as I can remember, and I cannot thank him and Michelle enough for what they’ve done over the years. Having the opportunity to race in NASCAR is a dream come true.”
Although Labbé is committed to a majority season, he is actively searching to secure funding to compete in the entire season.
Labbé has raced with DGM Racing since 2018. Together, they have 10 top-10s, 26 top-15s and 58 top-20s, including a fourth place finish in a torrential downpour at the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL – a career and team best finish.
“We couldn’t be more happy to welcome Alex back as we gear up for the 2022 season,” said Mario Gosselin, DGM Racing owner. “I’ve worked with Alex at every stage of his racing career, dating back to when he raced Late Models. I’m honored to be part of his successes and we’re extremely excited to have him on board for another season.”
