Big Machine Racing is pleased to announce that Nick Sanchez will drive the No. 48 Big Machine Racing Chevrolet Camaro in several upcoming races. Sanchez will make his debut with Big Machine Racing in Bristol on September 16, 2022, and will also race in Texas (9/24), Las Vegas (10/15) and Homestead (10/22).
Scott Borchetta, owner of Big Machine Racing, said, “there is so much great young talent at the moment, all vying for an opportunity to show they can get the job done. Nick has had some great results in ARCA this year and when Shane (Martin) brought us the opportunity to work with Nick, Chevrolet and NASCAR, it made perfect sense for us as we continue to develop our racing program at a very rapid pace.”
Shane Martin, Xfinity Series Program Manager for Chevrolet, said, “I have enjoyed working with Nick Sanchez the last few months on his Xfinity plans. At 21 years old it is hard to believe how mature and easy to work with he is. From our simulator to on track, Nick has what it takes to go far in our sport, and I am honored to be a part of it. Working on this partnership between NASCAR, Chevrolet, and Big Machine Racing has been rewarding and fulfilling and I cannot wait for Bristol to get here to get it started!”
“To have the opportunity to compete for wins in the NASCAR Xfinity Series is really a dream come true,” said Driver, Nick Sanchez. “I can‘t thank Chevrolet & NASCAR enough for their continued support as well as everything they‘ve done to help put this deal together. I‘m elated to drive for Scott Borchetta and begin working with everyone at Big Machine Racing. This is no doubt the biggest opportunity I‘ve received in my career, and I look forward to making the most of it, Bristol can‘t come soon enough!”
“Nick is an incredibly talented driver who embodies exactly what the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Program is about. We have witnessed his evolution since he joined Rev Racing and we‘re very thrilled to see him succeed in reaching the next level,” said Jusan Hamilton, NASCAR Sr. Director, Racing Operations and Event Management. “This opportunity will open new doors for him and we‘re confident Nick will continue to excel as a driver.”
“Chevrolet is proud to partner with Big Machine Racing and NASCAR to provide Nick with an opportunity to further his experience in the NASCAR Xfinity Series,” said Dr. Eric Warren, Chevrolet Director of NASCAR Programs. “Nick has shown his ability to win in ARCA and we have been impressed with Nick through our continued partnership with Rev Racing. Big Machine Racing has proven their ability to win races in the Xfinity Series and this couldn‘t be a better opportunity to help Nick succeed at the higher level.”
