Mario Gosselin will attempt to race in the 2021 NASCAR Xfinity Series season opener at Daytona International Speedway, he announced Dec. 7.
He’ll drive the No. 91 Chevrolet for his own team, DGM Racing.
It marks his first time competing in the series since 2017.
“I’m living the dream,” Gosselin said in a team release. “I have worked with these drivers from behind the wall week in and week out for years, now I get the opportunity to have it come full circle and go out and have some fun on track with them. We joke about racing each other quite a bit and now it’s actually coming to fruition thanks to AP Sports Regime and Caesar Bacarella.”
DGM will field three other cars in the NASCAR Racing Experience 300 on Feb. 13, 2021. Josh Williams will pilot the team’s No. 92 full time in 2021, while its other drivers have not yet been announced; in 2020, in addition to the No. 92, DGM also owned the Nos. 36 and 90, with Alex Labbe a full-time driver between the two cars. Bacarella will drive for the team at Daytona.
