Boris Said and Rajah Caruth will each get a NASCAR Xfinity Series start for Hendrick Motorsports this season, the team announced Tuesday.
Said will pilot the team’s No. 17 entry in the Oct. 7 Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval event.
Caruth will pilot the ride in the season-ending Nov. 4 race at Phoenix.
Both entries will be sponsored by HendrickCars.com.
Hendrick Motorsports has entered the No. 17 in five races this season. All Cup Series drivers for Hendrick — Alex Bowman, William Byron, Chase Elliott, and Kyle Larson — have all taken turns driving the car.
The car’s highest finish was second with William Byron at Austin in March.
Said has competed in 29 Xfinity Series races, capturing one win in 2010 at Montreal.
Caruth has raced in 15 Xfinity Series races to date, with a career-high of 12th last year at Martinsville Speedway.
