2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Champion and 2015 Daytona 500 victor Joey Lagano will join the BP Supercars All Star Eseries in next week’s fourth round.
The fourth round of the virtual championship will be contested at home of the Candian Grand Prix Circuit Gilles Villeneuve and the Watkins Glen International Circuit in New York.
“I’m pumped to be racing among the Supercars drivers. Like all professional race car drivers, they are supremely talented at what they do,” said Logano.
“I’ve admired what my Penske teammates Scott McLaughlin and Fabian Coulthard have achieved on track in what’s a highly competitive series.
“While we’re racing on the sim, I’m not going to hold back, though I know it’s going to be tough against a lot of these guys.
“I’m hoping some of my experience of running on road courses in the Cup Series will benefit me.”
Lagano currently sits second in the 2020 NASCAR series standings after four rounds with two victories next his name from Las Vegas and Phoenix.
The Supercars Eseries has already seen the likes of F1 star Max Verstappen and IndyCar champion Will Power join the field as wildcards.
“Joey is one of the top NASCAR drivers of this generation,” said Kay Hart, President and CEO, Ford Australia and New Zealand.
“So it’s a fascinating and exciting experiment to see him battling it out in a virtual Ford Performance Mustang alongside our very own drivers as they take on the entire Supercars field.”
