Front Row Motorsports announced its NASCAR plans on Wednesday, which included the addition of Anthony Alfredo, who ran 19 races in the NASCAR Xfinity Series last season with Richard Childress Racing.
Front Row Motorsports will continue to field two fulltime NASCAR Cup Series teams in 2021, Alfredo will be the driver of its No.38 Ford.
The 21-year-old will replace John Hunter Nemechek who left the organization to move to Kyle Busch Motorsports. Seth Barbour will serve as his crew chief.
“This is really an unbelievable moment,” said Alfredo. “When you start out racing karts as a kid, you dream of making it to the sport’s top level. I want to thank Bob Jenkins and everyone at Front Row Motorsports for making this dream a reality.
“I know the challenges ahead, but I’m here to work hard and prove myself.”
The team owner Bob Jenkins also commented, “We met Anthony and spent time with him when last season ended. We wanted another young driver and someone that fit well into our team. We feel that Anthony is a great match and we look forward to this season together.”
Alfredo has a combined 32 starts in the Xfinity and Truck series with a career-best finish of third in the fall Xfinity race at Texas last season. He also owns one win in what is now the ARCA East Series.
Michael McDowell will again drive FRM’s No. 34 Ford in the Cup Series and one of the organization’s former drivers, David Ragan, will drive a third entry – the No. 36 Ford – in the season-opening Daytona 500.
FRM will again field a fulltime Truck Series entry for Todd Gilliland and this season the team will be based out of FRM’s main shop.
