Frankie Muniz announced on Friday that he will be attempting the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Daytona in the #35 car with Joey Gase Motorsports. Ford Performance will be the sponsor, and, according to the announcement Muniz will run a “Limited schedule” with future races to be announced.
- Muniz signing with Joey Gase Motorsports answers a major question in NASCAR Silly Season. After an impressive ARCA Menards Series season in 2023 featuring 11 top-10 finishes, Muniz left Rette Jones Racing. Many speculated he could jump up to Xfinity and Trucks, and now he moves up to Xfinity.
- The #35 car was fielded under the Emerling-Gase Motorsports banner at Daytona in 2023. C.J. McLaughlin finished 31st after an accident. Joey Gase gave the car its’ best finish with a 9th-place run at Talladega in the spring.
- Fans are excited to see Muniz getting an opportunity. Many feel he deserves it after a solid 2023 season in the ARCA Menards Series.
