on

It was announced on Thursday that Spencer Boyd will compete full-time next season in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. The 22-year old will drive the No. 76 Chevrolet sponsored by Grunt Style for SS Green Light Racing.

While exact contract details are not known it has been said that a multi-year agreement was reached with Grunt Style which is a veteran owned company.

Boyd has made four starts for the team in 2017 in the No. 07 Chevrolet which has been primarily driven by Ray Black Jr.

“This is the day I’ve been waiting for my whole life,” says Spencer. “I’ve been racing something since I was five years old with the dream of making racing my career. Grunt Style has made my dreams come true, said Boyd.”

Boyd will compete for the 2018 Sunoco Rookie of the Year honors in the NXS.

The young driver knows it’ll be a lot of challenging work, saying “We have a lot of work to do between now and Daytona. With the new composite body to hang on the cars and several new tracks ahead of me, there won’t be much rest between the shop, gym, and the simulator this offseason.”

Boyd who is from St. Louis, Missouri moved to the Charlotte, North Carolina area at the early age of 14 to pursue his dream of becoming a full-time NASCAR driver.

He has 12 starts between the Camping World Truck Series and the XFINITY Series. In six starts in the XFINITY Series, four of which have come this season, Boyd’s best result is a 27th place finish at New Hampshire.
