For the series‘ trip to Wine Country, G2G Racing has enlisted the help of two local California drivers, Mason Filippi and Travis McCullough, to take on the 1.99-mile road course at the Sonoma Raceway.
Mason Filippi will be in the flagship No. 46 OpenFender.com Toyota Tundra this weekend, fresh off his first NASCAR Xfinity Series start last weekend at the Portland International Raceway. In his debut, Filippi finished 25th, on an overall rainy day in the Northwest.
Outside of NASCAR competition, Filippi competes in the TCR class of the Michelin Pilot Challenge for Bryan Herta Autosport. In the Pilot Challenge, he finished in second place in 2019 and third in 2020. Filippi also piloted touring cars in the TC America Series and the Pirelli World Challenge from 2017 to 2019, finishing in the top five of the standings each season.
The other newcomer to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is Travis McCullough. The Lodi, California native has been a staple running late models and modifieds, up and down the West Coast. He lays claim to multiple ARCA Menards Series West starts from 2007 to 2008. He also competes in the LUCAS OIL Modified Series, where he finished 3rd in championship points in 2019.
“Been a dream to run one of these trucks, McCullough said. “…Going back to my original roots of road racing in a new series. It will have its learning curves, but still will be one for the books.”
McCullough will pilot the team‘s second entry, the No. 47 Toyota Tundra, that will make its first series appearance since Circuit of the Americas, where Sam Lecomte attempted to qualify the entry.
