Ross Chastain will drive in the season-opening Daytona 500 in the NASCAR Cup Series in a partnership with Chip Ganassi Racing and Spire Motorsports, the team announced Thursday, Jan. 9.
Chastain will be sponsored by AdventHealth, which will sponsor Kyle Larson and his No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro at the Clash at Daytona and the fall playoff race at Kansas Speedway.
“It’s great to have AdventHealth back with the No. 42 team for some races in 2020,” Larson said in a team release. “It was awesome to win with AdventHealth on our car at the All-Star Race, in their first race with the 42 team, and I hope we can have more exciting races with them this year. They have been a great partner, on and off the track, and I’m glad to see our relationship continue.”
Chastain will also drive an AdventHealth-sponsored No. 77 in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
“To have the opportunity to run the Daytona 500 is awesome, and it’s great to do it this year with AdventHealth on board my car,” Chastain said. “I’ve only had one start in the Daytona 500, and can’t wait to run that race again in what I know will be a competitive car. I’m also looking forward to racing the Coca-Cola 600. That’s another iconic race that all of us want to win.”
Chastain is running full time in the Xfinity Series in 2020 in the No. 10 for Kaulig Racing. This is his first announced Cup ride for 2020.
