Longtime sports car veteran Joey Hand will make his NASCAR Cup Series debut for Rick Ware Racing this weekend at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval.
The 42-year-old Hand has earned wins in some of racing’s biggest events, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans (2016, GTE-Pro class). He has also been victorious in the Rolex 24 at Daytona (2011 – overall, 2017 – GT Le Mans class), and 12 Hours of Sebring (2011 and 2012 – GT class).

Hand will pilot the #52 while usual driver Josh Bilicki moves to the #15.
Welcome to the team, @JoeyHandRacing! Joey’s been working closely with Ford Performance so it will be valuable to have him as a teammate this weekend.
For the first time all year, I’ll be swapping numbers and will drive the #15 Ford Mustang this weekend at the Roval. Let’s go! https://t.co/Wz8J0Jv9Sh
