Bayley Currey will run full time with JD Motorsports with Gary Keller in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2022, JDM announced Dec. 27.
“I’m very excited and thankful to be back with JD Motorsports with Gary Keller in 2022,” Currey said in a team release. “[Team owner Johnny] Davis took a chance on me and gave me an opportunity late in the season last year. The relationship progressed and eventually turned into a full-time ride this year. Throughout the off-season we have been putting in a ton of work to get our fleet of cars ready to compete for 2022. Daytona [International Speedway] can’t get here soon enough!”
Currey entered 28 Xfinity races in 2021, qualifying for 24, mostly for Mike Harmon Racing.
Toward the end of the season, he returned to JDM, making seven of his final eight starts in its No. 15. He earned one top 10, a seventh at Phoenix Raceway.
Currey’s car number for 2022 was not announced. In 2021, JDM fielded the Nos. 4, 6, 15 and 0 full time. One of its drivers that year, Landon Cassill, has moved to Kaulig Racing’s No. 10 in Xfinity, while another, Colby Howard, will drive for McAnally-Hilgemann Racing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
