The NASCAR Xfinity Series debut at Circuit Of The Americas this weekend just got more interesting thanks to the latest addition to the field from JD Motorsports.
Spencer Pumpelly, a two-time class winner of the Rolex 24, will make his Xfinity Series debut at COTA this weekend behind the wheel of the No. 6 Camaro.
“I am very excited for this opportunity to drive for Johnny Davis and work with all the guys at JD Motorsports,” said Pumpelly. “I have been racing for 25 plus years and have had the opportunity to drive some really cool cars at places like LeMans and Daytona, but I’ve always said the most fun I’ve had in a car was racing stock cars on road courses. This will be my first Xfinity start so I know it will be a tough challenge but with the help of the guys on the team I’m sure we can get up to speed and be competitive.”

Pumpelly, a former race winner at COTA, is sure to be a dark horse favorite for a solid performance for JD Motorsports.
“COTA is a track I know well and I have two IMSA victories there so hopefully my track knowledge can help a little,” remarked Pumpelly. “I know the guys in Gaffney are working hard getting things ready and I can’t wait to get on track.”
Ryan Vargas, who is in the midst of his first full-time season in Xfinity, will return to the seat at Charlotte on May 29th.
Just a small bump in the road.
