Austin Theriault expects to race in all three national series this season

Fort Kent stock car driver Austin Theriault, who made his Monster Energy Cup Series debut last season before a concussion prematurely ended it, is in the process of finalizing some multirace deals in a few different racing series.

He expects to race in NASCAR’s three major series: Monster Energy Cup, Xfinity and the Gander Outdoors Truck Series.

“I’m getting closer and closer to [landing rides]. We’re lining up sponsors,” said the 26-year-old Theriault, who hopes to make his debut in April or May.

[Theriault] suffered a concussion on Oct. 14 during a multicar wreck at the 1000Bulbs.500 at Talladega Speedway in Alabama and wasn’t cleared by NASCAR to race again for the remainder of the season.

“The recovery took longer than I expected,” said Theriault, who feels fine now and has been cleared to race.
