This week, BJ McLeod Motorsports announced that Mason Massey and Stefan Parsons will both drive multiple races in the team’s No. 99 entry during the Xfinity season.
On Tuesday, the team stated that Massey will drive in at least 12 races, starting at Atlanta Motor Speedway on March 20. He also will keep a part-time dirt late model schedule alongside his Xfinity duties.
Massey, a 23-year-old from Douglasville, Georgia, drove for the team in 10 Xfinity races last season.
“Last season was a dream come true,” Massey said in a team release. “To be given the opportunity to compete at this level of stock car racing is something that I dreamed about for a long time, and to be given the opportunity to continue racing at this level is so special to me.
“(Team owners) BJ and Jessica (McLeod) have made an even larger commitment and investment into NASCAR racing this offseason with the purchase of the NASCAR Cup Series team with Matt Tifft. As a driver, this is awesome to see and even more awesome to be a part of. I can’t wait to get on-track at Atlanta (Motor Speedway) in a few weeks and get to work.”
Parsons, the 22-year-old son of longtime NASCAR veteran Phil Parsons, was confirmed to drive an unspecified number of races in the No. 99 on Monday.
His season debut is set for Feb. 27 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
“We’re really stepping up our program at BJMM and I can’t wait to show the results on the track,” said Parsons, who drove in nine races for the team last season. “Looking to make my third year in the Xfinity Series the best one yet.”
