Joe Graf, Jr. joins RCR for partial XFINTY schedule

Richard Childress Racing welcomes Joe Graf Jr. to its NASCAR Xfinity Series program, as well as its marketing and communications team. Graf Jr., who will pilot the No. 21 Chevrolet Camaro in select races this year, is a freshman at New York University. He will also learn the business side of the sport by serving as a marketing and communications intern for the team. The 20-year-old’s first race will be at Michigan International Speedway this June. While racing for RCR this season, Graf Jr. will also have the chance to learn the science of racing, by spending behind-the-scenes time with the competition and engineering teams. Graf Jr. will have the opportunity to attend competition meetings and debriefs, get simulator time, and assist with pit stop practice. Graf Jr. is currently competing full-time in the ARCA Menards Series, and will balance his internship and starts with RCR with his current race schedule.(Richard Childress Racing)(4-26-2019)
