“It is every race car drivers dream to keep moving up the NASCAR ladder as professionals,” Newberry said in a press release on Wednesday. “ I’m definitely one of those drivers who gets to conquer another goal and dream. I am at a loss for words as to how excited I am about making my first Nationwide start this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. It was a big last minute offer but an offer that I am pleased to take. I must thank Jamie Dick and his entire team for giving me this chance. It is one that I will forever be grateful for.”

Newberry is a 24-year-old driver from Bakersfield, California. Newberry currently runs in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East where he sits 12th in points after nine races. He also has made 35 career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts, running a full schedule in the series in the 2013 season where he finished 19th in points.

“The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series is where I wanna be,” said Newberry. “But I don’t feel the need to rush into anything, everything happens for a reason and when the timing is right I will be there. I am just looking forward to this weekend running in both the K&N Pro Series and NASCAR Nationwide Insurance series with Qore-24 and Chevrolet.”

Jason Miller will serve as the crew chief of the #55 Chevrolet this weekend. The #55 Viva Motorsports team is currently 28th in the NASCAR Nationwide Series owner point standings.
