Rette Jones Racing is expanding its operations into the NASCAR Xfinity Series this season, planning a four-race program with Noah Gragson behind the wheel of the No. 30 Ford Mustang.

The organization, which currently fields entries in the ASA STARS National Tour and ARCA Menards Series, will debut in the second-tier series on Memorial Day Weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Gragson will return to the organization for an additional three Xfinity Series events at Nashville Superspeedway (June 25), Michigan International Speedway (August 17), and Darlington Raceway (August 31).

A native of Las Vegas, Nevada, Gragson is no stranger to the organization, having competed in several Super Late Model events together in the last half-decade, as well as making a NASCAR Canada Series start for the team at Delaware Speedway last Fall.

The renewed partnership with Gragson will also be accompanied by a technical alliance with Stewart-Haas Racing, who fields a pair of entries in the second-tier series for defending NASCAR Xfinity Series champion Cole Custer, and Riley Herbst.

“Having had strong runs in their Super Late Model at the grassroots level, I’m excited to partner with Rette Jones Racing as we take on the next challenge in the Xfinity Series,” said Gragson. “Terry, Lisa, Kasey, Mackie Jones, and Mark Rette have played an instrumental role in my racing career and have become like family. “I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity to compete in the Xfinity Series again and hope to pick up where we left off.”

Rette Jones Racing joins Stewart-Haas Racing, AM Racing, and RSS Racing as teams boasting the Ford Performance branding every week in the second-tier series.

“This is an important step for the overall long-term plans for Rette Jones Racing,” offered RJR co-owner Terry Jones. “Noah has been instrumental in helping our Late Model program excel, but his presence thrives outside of the cockpit as he is instrumental in the growth and development of the other young drivers who funnel through our other motorsports programs. He is the perfect driver to launch our Xfinity Series program and we expect him to deliver strong results right away.”

Mark Rette, co-owner of the team and 2009 ARCA Menards Series championship-winning crew chief, is thrilled to expand Rette Jones Racing into NASCAR’s National Series, with a talented driver such as Gragson at the helm.

“Expanding Rette Jones Racing to compete in the NASCAR Xfinity Series is no small task, but we believe that with our technical alliance with Stewart-Haas Racing and the support of Ford and Ford Performance, we will execute our debut with flying colors and not only put a competitive product on the track for Noah but also contend for strong results in our upcoming races this summer.

In addition to his four-race NASCAR Xfinity Series program, Gragson will also compete in a pair of ARCA Menards Series events in the No. 30 Ford Mustang, driving the entry at Sonoma Raceway and Watkins Glen Interactional.
