The brothers will share seat time behind the wheel of the No. 90 Chevrolet with primary sponsorship coming from Bassett Gutters and More.

However, the team still hopes to be able to secure additional funding for this season.

Team owner Mario Gosselin is excited to have the brothers return to his organization this season, telling Kickin’ The Tires, “We’re excited to have Ronnie and Dillon back again this year as part of the DGM family,” said Gosselin. “Last year was the first time for them running in the Xfinity Series, so we’re looking forward to seeing what they can do in their second time around in this very competitive series.”

In 2019, Dillon Bassett made his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut at Richmond Raceway in the spring, finishing 15th in his series debut.

He went on to make five more starts tallying up three top-15 and four top-20 finishes with his best finish of the season being 13th at Richmond in the fall.
