Josh Berry in Legacy Motor Club No. 42 for Daytona

Josh Berry will drive the No. 42 Chevrolet of Legacy Motor Club at the upcoming Aug. 26 NASCAR Cup Series race at Daytona International Speedway.

The race will be Berry’s first Cup Series start at the 2.5-mile superspeedway though he has years of experience at the track in the Xfinity Series.

Berry has driven multiple cars this season as a full-in driver due to injuries, Chase Elliott and Alex Bowman but now is getting seat time in the No. 42 following the suspension and termination of Noah Gragson.

“I can’t thank everyone at LEGACY MOTOR CLUB enough for giving me the opportunity to drive the No. 42 again next weekend at Daytona,” said Berry. “I haven’t driven these cars on a superspeedway yet, but I’ve got great teammates in Erik Jones and Jimmie Johnson that I can lean on throughout the week to be up to speed for Saturday night.”

 “We appreciate the cooperation of JR Motorsports and look forward to Josh driving the No. 42 Chevy at Daytona,” said VP of Race Operations Joey Cohen. “Josh stepped in at Michigan and fit in great with the team. He understands the need to work together at superspeedways as a teammate and can help LEGACY M.C. have a solid points day and contest for the win.”

 The NASCAR Cup Series’ 400-mile event at Daytona International Speedway will take place under the lights on Saturday, Aug. 26 at 7:00 pm ET airing on NBC, MRN Radio and SIRIUS XM NASCAR Radio channel 90.
