Lira Motorsports will look to rejoin the grid in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and ARCA Menards Series next season after a five-year absence, as team owner Carlos Lira announced the organization’s intentions to run both series late last week.
According to Lira’s Facebook post, Logan Misuraca, Juan Ma Gonzalez and Andrik Dimayuga will make up the team’s 2021 driver roster. However, Misuraca says that, as of now, she is the only driver scheduled to participate in the NASCAR Truck Series and ARCA Menards Series next season for Lira Motorsports.
In 2020, Misuraca raced in the Pro Late Model division at New Smyrna Speedway, finishing second in point standings to Jamie Skinner, after collecting three top-fives and four top-10s in her four feature events. The Sanford, Florida-native also claimed the track’s Rookie of The Year award this past season.
Fortress Water will be the primary sponsor of Misuraca’s efforts in both the ARCA Menards Series and Camping World Truck Series in 2021.
“Thanks to my amazing sponsor Fortress Water, [without them] none of this would have been reachable,” said Misuraca. “So blessed to have their support.”
Misuraca will be getting behind the wheel of the No. 33 Fortress Water Ford Fusion for the first time at Daytona International Speedway’s two-day test session for the ARCA Menards Series on January 16th and 17th, with her first race coming a month later in the ARCA Menards Series East event at New Smyrna Speedway – date to be announced.
After New Smyrna, the schedule for the Lira Motorsports team has yet to be determined, as the organization is waiting on the official release of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and ARCA Menards Series schedules, in order to officially set their race dates for the 2021 season.
The official date and venue for Misuraca’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut – along with the Truck Series return for Lira Motorsports — will be announced at a later date. Misuraca says that the team has been assigned a number for their Truck Series entry.
Misuraca will join Hailie Deegan as the second confirmed female driver to be entering an event in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2021. Jennifer Jo Cobb, Natalie Decker and Angela Ruch all entered events in the series last season, but have yet to officially announce their 2021 plans.
Misuraca’s full schedule will be added to this article when it is released.
