We are hearing that 19 year old driver Marc Davis will return to the Nationwide Series next weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the Sam’s Town 300. He will be behind the wheel of the #58 Macys.com Cavi Chevrolet for XXXtreme Motorsport.
Davis, fresh off a third place run in the ASA’s Freestate 500 in South Africa, last appeared in the Truck Series at Homestead at the end of 2009, and his most recent Nationwide Series start was at Nashville in June of ’09.
It’s been a tough off-season for the young driver from Maryland with the devastating loss of his father and team owner Harry in January. Harry was Marc’s biggest supporter, and an advocate for diversity in NASCAR. But even with the hardship, our source tells us the team is hoping to put more support together to run additional races in 2010.
Expect an announcement from the team very soon.
