After a successful NASCAR Xfinity Series debut at Portland International Raceway for Joe Gibbs Racing, Connor Mosack will return to the series for his second career start at Watkins Glen International, driving for Sam Hunt Racing.
Mosack, who currently competes full-time in the Trans-Am TA2 Series while making sporadic appearances in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, and ARCA Menards Series, will pilot the No. 26 RadCats Toyota GR Supra.
The 23-year-old has a plethora of road racing experience in various divisions and is a former winner at Watkins Glen International in the Trans-Am TA2 Series, experience that should come in handy when tackling the 2.45-mile road course.
“I’m really excited for the opportunity to race with Sam Hunt Racing this year at Watkins Glen,” said Mosack. “Sam has a great group of guys, and I’m looking forward to working with them. My goal going into the race is to come out with a Top-10 finish. Sam has competitive cars and if we can stay out of trouble in the race, I think we will be in a good spot at the end.”
After debuting in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2019, Sam Hunt Racing is in the midst of its strong season yet, having recorded two top-five and three top-10 results through 20 events this season.
Mosack joins a strong lineup of drivers to compete in the No. 26 Toyota GR Supra this season, which includes Jeffrey Earnhardt, Santino Ferrucci, Derek Griffith, John Hunter Nemechek, Chandler Smith, and Ryan Truex.
“Connor is a great young man and a talented race car driver, especially considering how late his racing career began [at age 18],” said team owner Sam Hunt. “I’m excited and proud to add him to our SHR driver roster. His personality, moral compass, and competitiveness fit in perfectly with our culture. We are all excited to get to work with him and continue his transition to the Xfinity Series.”
