BJ McLeod Motorsports (BJMM) announced today the signing of NASCAR veteran driver Chris Fontaine to pilot the second NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) team car in the upcoming PowerShares® QQQ 300 at Daytona.

He will drive the No. 99 Ford Mustang in a former Roush Fenway Racing car acquired by the team during the off-season. Fontaine’s NXS debut will be backed by RackTails Gear with additional support from Glenden Enterprises and JPS Ford. In addition to his duties in the NXS, Fontaine will be competing in Friday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) NextEra Energy Resources 250 race in a partnership with BJMM. Fontaine will drive the No. 78 RackTails Gear/Glenden Enterprises Toyota Tundra and is poised to make his 54th series start overall. In five prior NCWTS starts at Daytona, the 34-year-old has drafted to a track best of seventh in 2012, while starting a track best eighth last February. Jason Houghtaling will serve as crew chief for Fontaine’s XFINITY Series effort.

Carl Edwards and Kurt Busch will need to acquire charters from Michael Waltrip Racing to have one of NASCAR’s guaranteed 36 positions, according to NBC’s Dustin Long.

NASCAR has offered charters to teams that have run all of the full seasons since 2013 and both the No. 19 and 41 teams have not. Unless something strange occurs, however, look for them to be locked into the field soon.

In 42 starts. Kyle Busch has amassed the 15th-best average finish among active, fulltime drivers with a 20.38. He has not finished in the top 10 since October 2013, however, and that makes him a poor value at his salary cap.

Busch came close to finishing in the top 10 twice during that period, but both modest runs came on Daytona International Speedway’s sister track of Talladega SuperSpeedway. Still, Busch has earned nine top-10s on this track type during his career, which ranks him seventh on the active chart.
Feb 9 - 2:46 PM

From the time he finished third in the May 2013 Talladega SuperSpeedway race until last year’s fifth on that same track in the fall, Carl Edwards failed to crack the top 15 a single time in nine starts. That has contributed to an average finish of only 20.53 on the combined plate tracks.

Restrictor-plate, superspeedways are notoriously volatile, however, and Edwards ranks 16th among active drivers on this track type. He won’t be the worst option for the Daytona 500, but he will not be the best either.
Feb 9 - 2:45 PM

If Bobby Labonte qualifies for the Daytona 500, it will be his 91st start on one of the restrictor-plate, superspeedways. Drivers simply don’t come with much more experience.

Labonte has one win, 12 top-fives (13 percent of the time), and top-10s in more than 25 percent of his starts. His best finish since running a part time schedule was a 15th in 2014, however, and he should be expected to land somewhere in the mid-20s this week.

Brad Keselowski Racing (BKR) announced Austin Theriault will drive a third entry for the organization in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season-opening race on February 19 at Daytona.

Theriault will drive the No. 2 Ford F-150 in the NextEra Energy Resources 250, joining full-time drivers Tyler Reddick and Daniel Hemric, with Buddy Sisco serving as the team's crew chief. Theriault made his NCWTS debut in 2015 with BKR at Daytona. He scored an impressive fourth-place finish, leading the race once for nine laps after starting fourth and finishing with a driver rating of 110.2. He made nine NCWTS starts for BKR in 2015, claiming two top five and four top 10 finishes. Theriault spent the 2012 and 2013 seasons as part of BKR's driver development program, running a partial schedule in the Southern Super Late Model Series while working full-time in the team's shop.

Following confirmation that Jacques Villeneuve will race in this year’s NASCAR XFINITY series, the French-Canadian has told Motorsport.com he will be entered in a #27 Ford at Daytona this month.

The No. 27 is seen as symbolic, as that's the number which Jacques' iconic father Gilles Villeneuve made famous in Formula 1, 1981-’82. Villeneuve raced a No. 27 Bill Davis Racing Toyota at Daytona in 2008, but was punted into the wall during one of the Duels and failed to make the 500. He also raced this entry at Talladega (where he finished 21st) and Phoenix.
