For the first time since 2017, Brennan Poole will get to race full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
Poole was named Friday to the No. 6 JD Motorsports Chevrolet for 2023. He was boosted to the ride with a three-race tenure in the No. 6 where he finished as high as 14th at Homestead-Miami.
Poole and Bayley Currey will be the team’s two full-time drivers next season. JD Motorsports is still working on sponsors and drivers for their third, No. 0 entry.
In 2017, Poole was let go by Chip Ganassi after narrowly missing the Championship 4 and having his second straight season with four top-5 finishes and 17 top-10s.
Since Poole was let go, he has bounced from ride to ride in all three NASCAR national series.
In the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, Poole made two starts in 2018 with NextGen Motorsports and 25 starts in 2019-21 with OnPoint Motorsports. In 2020, he had one top-10 Cup finish while racing full-time for Rick Ware Racing.
In 2022, he scraped by with seven Truck starts and a DNQ for G2G Racing, plus seven Xfinity starts and 10 DNQs with Mike Harmon Racing and two DNQs with Jimmy Means Racing.
No word on who will sponsor Brennan Poole’s No. 6 Chevrolet in 2023. During his three starts with JDM in 2022, Poole received support from Macc Door Systems at Texas and Homestead-Miami and Out of the Groove at Phoenix.
