Veteran driver will pilot No. 24 car for JGL Racing NASCAR veteran Eric McClure will compete full-time in the NASCAR XFINITY Series in 2015 as driver of the No. 24 JGL Toyota, according to a team release. McClure , 36, has 254 career starts in the series with a best finish of eighth at Daytona International Speedway in 2013. From 2011 through 2014, the Chilhowie, Virginia native competed for team owner Mark Smith and TriStar Motorsports. Jay Guy, previously a crew chief at Front Row Motorsports , will serve as crew chief for McClure and the No. 24 team. JGL, a two-car operation fielded by James Whitener and Gregg Mixon, debuted in 2014 and featured numerous drivers behind the wheel of its Nos. 28 and 93 entries during the year. The organization fielded Dodge entries in 2014. "It's a privilege to compete at this level of motorsports, and to have the opportunity to return to full-time competition is truly a blessing," said McClure , who hasn't run a full schedule since 2011. "I'm excited about the new partnership with JGL Racing. They are an organization comprised of experienced individuals sharing a deep-rooted competitive spirit. I could not be more excited about the upcoming season." Reynolds Consumer Products, through its Hefty and Reynolds Wrap brands, will serve as primary sponsor of the team for a minimum of 25 events, according to the team. " Eric's a talented driver who's had success on and off the race track over the course of his career," Whitener said, "and it's exciting to add another veteran driver and national brands to our organization. "We look forward to continuing to build on things accomplished in 2014 and growing our team together." FULL SERIES COVERAGE • Latest news • Standings • Schedule
