Jesse Iwuji running three races for BJ McLeod Motorsports

When the NASCAR Xfinity Series takes to the Kansas Speedway for the opening race of round two in the NASCAR Playoffs, Carrollton, Texas-driver Jesse Iwuji will be making his second start in the series – and his first on an oval — piloting the No. 99 Chevrolet Camaro for BJ McLeod Motorsports in the Kansas Lottery 300.

Iwuji’s effort at Kansas will be backed by eRacing Association, a new iRacing league that is set to launch in December, which will give away $10,000 to the top finishing drivers in each main event.

The Kansas Lottery 300 at Kansas Speedway marks the first race of a three-race deal for Iwuji and BJ McLeod Motorsports, as the 33-year-old will run the No. 99 Chevrolet Camaro in the series’ events at Texas Motor Speedway and Phoenix Raceway.
