GAFFNEY, S.C. – After handing the “keys” to Daryl Harr for the two races out West, Danny Efland will return to drive the familiar No. 4 Flex Seal Chevrolet at Bristol Motor Speedway. The car, chassis JDM 008, was raced by teammate Mike Wallace in a number of events last year, and has been recently renumbered and added to the No. 4 fleet.
Danny will be making only his second start at Bristol this weekend, but he is no stranger to success at high-banked short tracks. Before entering the upper divisions of NASCAR, Danny raced at many short tracks throughout the south.
The team is also excited about the return of Flex Seal to the No. 4 race entry as they continue their relationship with Danny, Mike, and the entire JD Motorsports team. During his break, Danny spent time honing his road course racing skills with teammate Mike Wallace and road course ace Ron Fellows. The two raced at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch in Chevy Corvettes, practicing for the three road course venues on the 2013 schedule.
Danny Efland Quotes: “I am so relieved to be getting back behind the wheel of the No. 4 Flex Seal Chevy at Bristol. Daryl had some tough luck out West, but I hope we can rebound strong at the crazy half-mile short track. Bristol is usually a fast-paced race, and sometimes it is a challenge to keep the car clean. I look forward to battling it out and racing hard this weekend.”
