B.J. McLeod will begin the 2024 NASCAR season with a busy schedule at Daytona International Speedway, running double-duty between the NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series.

The Wauchula, Florida-native will get behind the wheel of the No. 78 Chevrolet Camaro for the United Rentals 300, an entry registered under the BJ McLeod Motorsports banner. The organization officially announced the news on Friday via social media.

 

McLeod is a veteran of 167 starts in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, but has dramatically scaled back his involvement in the second-tier series over the last three seasons to focus on his NASCAR Cup Series program with Live Fast Motorsports.

During the nine-season involvement in the Xfinity Series, McLeod has managed to record a pair of 11th-place finishes as his career best, the first of which came at Daytona International Speedway in the Summer of 2017.

The 40-year-old driver will have an extremely busy Speedweeks at Daytona, seeing as he’ll also attempt to qualify for the 2024 Daytona 500, which has its festivities beginning on Wednesday with single-vehicle qualifying.

While McLeod hasn’t competed in an Xfinity Series event at Daytona since Summer 2020, he has managed to score a pair of top-10 finishes in the NASCAR Cup Series at the 2.5-mile superspeedway, including a career-high seventh-place result in the 2022 regular-season finale.

Last year, BJ McLeod Motorsports fielded the No. 78 Chevrolet Camaro for Anthony Alfredo, who managed to record a pair of top-10 results at Daytona in August, and the penultimate event of the season at Martinsville Speedway.

While Alfredo departed the organization at season’s end, to return to Our Motorsports, crew chief Pat Tryson elected to continue with BJ McLeod Motorsports, and will call the shots from atop the pit box of the No. 78, driven by owner-driver McLeod.
