Mike Harmon Racing named their drivers for the season-opening NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Daytona via SiriusXM NASCAR Radio on Saturday morning’s Frontstretch with Jack Arute.
Mike Harmon and Joe Nemechek will both get the nods to be behind the wheel.
According to Harmon, Nemechek will run the No. 47 and currently Harmon will be in the No. 74, however he says that could change if someone comes to the table with sponsorship and, “wants to do it worse than I do,” Harmon said.
