Added Preece, “Being a part of the Clash at the LA Memorial Coliseum is special to me because of the opportunity it presents. A 1/4-mile bullring is the type of racetrack that I have had a lot of success on, and I’m looking forward to the future races ahead as well.“

The initial SHR release announced that Preece would make two Cup starts during the 2022 season at Dover Motor Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway.

He’s the second driver to be added to RWR’s No. 15 lineup for 2022, following Jan. 12’s announcement that David Ragan will drive the car in multiple races, beginning with the Daytona 500.
