After running 35 races for Phil Parsons Racing and finishing 36th in the driver standings Josh Wise will again be behind the wheel of the No. 98 car for the 2015 season.
Wise’s best finish was a 20th place run in May at Talladega. Aided by Reddit and Dogecoin he upset Danica Patrick to win the fan vote and earn entry into the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series All-Star race at Charlotte.
“This is the first season this car has raced full-time, it’s my first year with the team and working with Gene [Nead], my crew chief, so I feel like we’ve learned a lot to this point and we definitely have weaknesses to address and gains to make over the off-season,” Wise said.
PPR will again operate as a one car team in 2015 something that the 31-year-old is comfortable with.
“This is where I plan to be,” he said. “I think that [co-owner] Phil [Parsons], myself, we all came into this this year knowing that we wanted to work hard and build this thing from the ground up.”
“I think we’ve got a lot to do,” Wise said. “I’m hoping we can actually go to the wind tunnel; we don’t get to go to the wind tunnel at all, or shaker rigs or pull-downs, so I’m hoping we can actually do some development and learn some things to apply.”
