B.J. McLeod Motorsports has announced the addition of Mason Massey to their 2020 NASCAR Xfinity Series driver lineup.

Massey will pilot the No. 99 entry in a partial schedule that will begin at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on February 22.

A native of Douglasville, Georgia, Massey is a former US Legends Pro National Champion and asphalt Late Model standout.

He is probably best known for the time he spent behind the wheel of the No. 9 Late Model for Bill Elliott Racing’s Driver Development Program.

In addition, Massey has won several races in his career including the prestigious Alabama 200.

With that said, he took a shift in his career and turned his focus on Dirt Late Models. Over the past few seasons Massey has been racing around the Southeast.

In 2019, the young driver returned to asphalt racing when he made his NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series debut at Iowa Speedway last June.

Massey went on to make six additional starts in the Truck Series with Reaume Brothers Racing with a best finish of 17th at Pocono Raceway.

“Mason is a true racer and a very talented driver,” said B.J. McLeod. “One look at some of the cars, tracks, and races he has competed in and you know he has the ability to be successful at this level. I am excited to add him to our driver lineup in 2020. He is a great addition to the team and we’re going to have a lot of fun.”

Overall, BJ McLeod Motorsports will field three full-time entries in 2020 with Vinnie Miller and Matt Mills both returning to the organization.

“I can’t really put into words what an opportunity like this means to me.” I grew up racing and dreaming of racing in NASCAR. I raced with many guys over the years who are now in NASCAR, and I definitely felt like I belonged there too,” said Massey.

“It definitely is not the path I envisioned when I was 15 or 16, but I know now that I’m more ready and prepared for this opportunity than I was then. B.J. and Jessica have given me an opportunity to continue my lifelong dream. They are building something very cool at B.J. McLeod Motorsports and are all in. I am so excited to be a small part of that story, while continuing my own story.”

BJ McLeod Motorsports has stated that sponsorship and additional team information will be released at a later date.
