HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — Daniel Dye will pilot the No. 44 Chevrolet Camaro for Alpha Prime Racing in three NASCAR Xfinity Series events this season.
The first event will occur this coming weekend at the 1.5-mile Texas Motor Speedway along with races at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Phoenix Raceway to end the year.
Champion Container, Dye’s primary NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series sponsor, will sponsor Dye as as he transitions to the Xfinity Series.
Dye, a 19-year-old competitor and native of Daytona Beach, Florida, has raced full-time for GMS Racing in his inaugural Craftsman Truck Series season in 2023.
“I’m really looking forward to making my Xfinity debut with Tommy Joe Martins and everyone at Alpha Prime,” remarked Daniel Dye. “It’s a great opportunity to compete at the next level and get a feel for what the Xfinity car is like before hopefully getting more opportunities in the future.”
“Daniel is a really exciting prospect,” stated team owner Tommy Joe Martins. “We feel fortunate to be the team giving him his first shot in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, and we’re really looking forward to seeing what he can do at Texas, Vegas, and Phoenix to close out the year.”
