Howie DiSavino III will join Alpha Prime Racing (APR) for select starts in the Xfinity Series during the 2022 season.
APD has two full-time entries in the Xfinity Series and turn over one of those rides to DiSavino at Phoenix Raceway in March.
“I am very excited to race with Alpha Prime Racing. I think we will have a great season together! It has been a dream come true to race in the Xfinity Series,” said DiSavino. “Tommy Joe is giving me that shot to make my dream come true. I couldn’t thank everyone at Alpha Prime enough for this opportunity!”
The 20-year-old DiSavino has competed in the ARCA Menards Series and Camping World Truck Series previously. After making his truck debut at Richmond last season, he scored a best finish of 22nd at Pocono. He drove the No. 3 truck of Jordan Anderson Racing in each race. Over six ARCA starts he has two top-10 finishes.
“A big part of the growth of Alpha Prime Racing will be how well we can develop young drivers,” said Tommy Joe Martins, Co-owner of Alpha Prime Racing. “I’m thankful that Howie, his family, his sponsors, and his mentor and manager Austin Theriault believe in what we’re doing here and are giving us that chance. We want to give him the opportunity to grow and be successful.”
