“Really excited and blessed to have the opportunity to drive the [No.] 51,” Weatherman tweeted Wednesday night (June 5).

Weatherman is also scheduled to drive the No. 74 in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in Saturday’s LTi Printing 250 for Mike Harmon Racing.

Weatherman has nine previous MENCS starts, all since 2017. Two of those starts came for RWR in the No. 51, and the rest for StarCom Racing. His best Cup finish is 26th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The RWR No. 51 is 34th in the MENCS owner standings with 74 points, they also field the No. 52 full time, and an open No. 53 debuted during the Monster Energy All-Star Race/Coca-Cola 600 stopover at Charlotte Motor Speedway and will run seven to eight races.
