Following Brandonbilt Motorsports (@BMSRaceTeam) noteworthy 13th place finish with principal driver Brandon Brown (@brandonbrown_86) behind the wheel at Dover (Del.) International Speedway earlier this month, officials from BMS and MAD Motorsports jointly announced today that the Manassas, Va. driver Mason Diaz will make his third career NASCAR Xfinity Series start in the upcoming Alsco 300 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway on Sat., May 25.

Diaz will drive the team’s No. 86 Chevrolet Camaro in the 11th race of the season.

Diaz has two previous starts in the Xfinity Series where he finished 18th in his debut at Richmond (Va.) Raceway (September 2018) and a 36th place finish after succumbing to a mechanical failure in his Richmond return last month.

With a second opportunity in 2019, the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East competition has set his sights to impress in his Xfinity Series intermediate debut and deliver a strong effort for Brandonbilt Motorsports.

“I am very excited to get back in a Brandonbilt Motorsports Chevrolet next weekend at Charlotte,” said Diaz. “It’s unfortunate that we had a mechanical failure at Richmond while we were running very competitively, but I’m thankful for a second opportunity with the team.

“Brandonbilt Motorsports has showed their ability to run well at the intermediate tracks, so I’m confident that will continue, and I’ll be able to conquer my learning curve in quick fashion.”

Diaz’s efforts for Charlotte will be supported by longtime partners The Sign Shop and Solid Rock Carriers.

Headquartered in Woodbridge, Va., The Sign Shop is your one stop shopping place for all your business needs for both custom and traditional needs. From magnetic signs, vehicle lettering, vehicle wraps, signs, screen printing, business cards and embroidery, see how The Sign Shop makes you shine!

Additional support for Diaz’s Xfinity Series run include: Prince William Marina, and Trebor Yelgab Enterprises.

“I’m very thankful for the support of my marketing partners,” added Diaz. “The Sign Shop and Solid Rock Carriers have been with me for a long time and their continued support is appreciated. But without their support and Prince William Marina and Trebor Yelgab Enterprises a lot of my racing in 2019, including Charlotte would not be possible.”

Touted as up and coming driver in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, Diaz will expand his resume in the NASCAR Xfinity Series hoping to compete on the larger tracks throughout the remainder of the 2019 season.
