In a move that shows how desperate JR Motorsports is they have hired 57-year-old Greg Sacks to drive the number 88 car in the July 22nd race at Daytona International Speedway. Sacks last competed in a NASCAR sanctioned event in 2005 when he did a pair of start and parks at Pocono for his own team.
The car will be sponsored by Grand Touring Vodka. Steve Arpin will continue to drive car number 7 while Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be driving a special Wrangler laced car number 3 in tribute to his father.
Future driving plans for car number 88 have not been announced but anytime Greg Sacks gets to be a race will bring back memories to his cup win in 1985 at Daytona in the Pepsi Firecracker 400. Sacks would later add a Nationwide series win in 1996 at Talldega to his resume.
