JR Motorsports taps Coleman Pressley to drive flagship #88 Chevrolet
A third generation NASCAR driver, Coleman Pressley, son of former NASCAR driver Robert Pressley, has been selected by JR Motorsports to jump behind the wheel of the #88 car during the June 5th Nationwide Series race at Nashville Superspeedway.
“We like what we’ve seen in Coleman during his limited time in the Nationwide Series. We’re always looking for young talent and with Jamie [McMurray] out of the car for a few weeks, this gives us the opportunity to put a young guy in there and see how he does. So we’ll have a look at him driving the 88 at Nashville and Kentucky,” said Tony Eury Sr., Crew Chief of the #88.
Pressley has eight career Nationwide Series starts and holds 26 short-track victories. His best finish in a Nationwide event was 15th he received while racing at Darlington with R3 Motorsports.
CARCHEX, a sponsor of JR Motorsports, would like to wish Pressley and the entire JR Motorsports team the best of luck this weekend at Nashville!
