Chad Hackenbracht is boiling over with anticipation and excitement, as he approaches his NASCAR Nationwide Series debut this weekend in the CNBC Prime’ s The Profit 200 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Hackenbracht, who was supposed to make his debut last month at Iowa Speedway but instead made his first Camping World Truck Series start in Texas, is geared up and ready for his debut in the Granite State.
Hackenbracht’s family owned company, Tastee Apple, Inc., will be on the hood of the No. 44 Toyota Camry and veteran Crew Chief Greg Conner will be calling the shots. Hackenbracht previously competed in the ARCA Racing Series for three seasons and showed a lot of success with a win at Pocono Raceway in 2012 and eight top-five and 22 top-10 finishes in 47 career starts.
With no fear of learning the weathered 1.058-mile oval, coined the “Magic Mile”, in New Hampshire’s countryside; the 21- year-old Hackenbracht is eager to be back in the driver’s seat.
“I’ve been waiting for this race for a long time,” said Hackenbracht. “To say I’m excited is an understatement. I’m confident my team has put together a great car for me and I will lean on my veteran teammates for advice.”
Saturday’s 211.6 mile event will be the 24th NASCAR Nationwide Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Hackenbracht will hit the speedway for the first time on Friday, when the NASCAR Nationwide Series has their first practice at 11 a.m. ET. Tune in Saturday July 13th on ESPN at 3:30 p.m. ET to watch Hackenbracht and his TriStar Motorsports teammates take to New Hampshire’s “Magic Mile.”
