Kyle Keller, a full-time competitor in the ARCA Menards Series West, will attempt to make his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut later this season at Watkins Glen International, partnering with MBM Motorsports.

A native of Las Vegas, Nevada, Keller is expected to pilot an MBM Motorsports entry carrying the No. 13, after an announcement Wednesday that confirmed the team would be pivoting to using the number as its primary entry from Indianapolis onwards. 

Over the last five seasons, the 19-year-old racer has accumulated 26 starts in the ARCA Menards Series West, and after four starts this season in the series, currently sits fifth-place in series point standings, driving for Kennealy-Keller Motorsports.

In the series’ annual stops at Portland International Raceway and Sonoma Raceway, Keller managed to score a pair of top-10 finishes, adding to a solid statline that includes six top-five and 16 top-10 finishes, including a career-best fourth at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Bullring in 2020.

Owned by Carl Long, MBM Motorsports has traditionally fielded a full-time Xfinity Series entry, but this year, elected to jump between multiple series with their efforts, competing in the NASCAR Cup Series, Xfinity Series, Truck Series, and the ARCA Menards Series.

“So excited for this, can’t wait,” Keller said in a post on X (formerly Twitter). “Thank you, everyone, for this opportunity, let’s make it great. Let me know if you want to be on board.”

With a variety of drivers on board, MBM Motorsports has made a total of 12 Xfinity Series starts at Watkins Glen, collecting a pair of top-20 finishes, one with Stanton Barrett in 2016 (19th), and one with Timmy Hill in 2022 (14th).
