Adian Shepherd to run Limited Schedule for CM Racing(UPDATE: Nick Pericles to Drive the #33 at Darlington!)

Post by CJ Racing on July 17th 2017, 1:38 pm

---CM Racing has announced that they have signed Aidan Shepherd to a 4-race deal(including this weekend at Atlanta) in the #33 RockStar Energy Chevy for 2017, switching out the races that Jonny Gardner was planned to drive this season for the team in the SCS. CM Racing's Owner Chris Dodd said that there were a few factors that led into this decision:

On Shepherd:
Chris Dodd: "We decided to give Shepherd a chance, cause he is someone that is always around and very active in the garage area, even if he wasn't on the best of teams. We hope that these 4 races will give him a better opportunity to show his driving ability, and make a few races."

On Gardner:
Dodd: ""This season has not gone very well in the HNS for Gardner, besides his victory at Road America he has not had a lot of success this season after being a Championship contender last season. We feel that we need to focus more time on his HNS success for the remainder of 2017, which is why he will not be running the SCS races he was planned to run."

---During CM Racing's announcement, it was also mentioned that because both John Arndt and Stephen Pollard III currently have racing obligations for Round 33 @ Darlington, they are looking for a Veteran driver to attempt the race in the #33 car, however there is no official word on who that driver is as of yet.(UPDATE: Nick Pericles will drive the #33 at Darlington)

Round 21 of Atlanta(Aidan Shepherd)

UPDATE: Nick Pericles to Drive for CM Racing at Darlington

After a week of searching, CM Racing has announced that Veteran driver Nick Pericles has gotten approval to drive the #33 for the team at Darlington.

CM Racing's Statement: "We are very excited to have Nick Pericles on board for Darlington. We were looking for a Veteran driver to run, as Darlington is a challenging and difficult track, especially for young, inexperienced drivers. Nick Pericles has years of experience in this series, and we are hopeful to have a solid run at one of the biggest races of the year with him on board."
