Joey Gase joins MBM Motorsports for Xfinity season, Daytona 500

MBM Motorsports, headed by Carl Long, has revealed Joey Gase as the full-time driver of their No. 35 NASCAR Xfinity Series Toyota Supra.

Additionally, Gase will attempt the 61st running of the Daytona 500 with the team, piloting the No. 66 on a part-time basis.

Eternal Fan will back Gase in 2019, along with support from Donate Life, Medline, Agri Supply, Page Construction and Pro Master.

“I am very excited and thankful for the opportunity Carl (Long) and MBM Motorsports is giving me this year,” Gase said in a release from the team. “Every offseason is stressful when you don’t know what your plans for the following season will be. This offseason by far has been the most stressful of my career with some unforeseen things happening. One evening I was sitting in my office trying to figure out what my next move should be and then out of the blue Carl gave me a call and we talked for about two hours over the phone and now here we are. MBM Motorsports has grown and improved their program a lot over the last two years, especially the end of last season. I am very excited to be a part of that growth in 2019.”

Gase has been a full-time Xfinity Series driver for the past five seasons and has 208 starts in the division, placing as high as fifth at Talladega in 2015. He also has 30 starts at the Cup level, finishing as high as 18th at Talladega in 2018. 

“Having an experienced driver in Joey Gase to start our season is a huge blessing,” said team owner Carl Long. “He has worked hard to bring sponsorship to MBM. Today’s driver has to be gifted in handling a car and promotions. Lucky for us Joey is one of the best in all of NASCAR at doing both. Look for us to turn heads this year!”
