Corey Heim Making Xfinity Debut at Dover

Corey Heim will make the move to the NASCAR Xfinity Series at Dover Motor Speedway for Sam Hunt Racing, it announced April 11.

Hunt will drive the No. 24 in what will be his series debut.

“It means so much to get a start in the Xfinity series,” Heim said in a team release. “I’ve watched all three national series of NASCAR for as long as I can remember, and to be able to make the next step up is a dream come true.

“It’s certainly exciting to join SHR. Sam [Hunt, owner] and I have talked about running races for a few years now. To be able to finally put something together is awesome and worth the wait. I want to have a strong run in my debut. I have the resources needed to succeed on and off the racetrack with Toyota Racing Development and Sam Hunt Racing. With that being said, I have no set expectations, just going to go out and give it my all.”
