Look to see James Davison in more Cup Series races with Rick Ware Racing in 2021, the driver confirmed to The Racing Experts.
“Things are looking solid for the year ahead,” Davison said. “It doesn’t look like I’m going to run a full season, but maybe, like two-thirds of one, so that’s better than nothing, isn’t it?
“I’m grateful for this opportunity with Rick Ware.”
An exact amount of races was not disclosed, but Davison said there’s still a chance he could drive in the Daytona 500.
“The main thing for me is that I just do more races, and in better equipment than I did last year,” Davison said. “So if that’s how it plays out, I’m happy with that.”
The Melbourne, Victoria native made his NASCAR Cup Series debut in the June 2020 Pocono doubleheader, piloting the No. 77 Spire Motorsports entry.
After the Pocono race weekend, Davison drove a majority of the second-half of the schedule for Rick Ware Racing.
Davison ultimately competed in 15 races, earning a career-high 29th-place finish at the Charlotte Road Course race in October.
“There’s no substitute for experience,” Davison said, who added he had visited all but two tracks that he raced at for the first time.
Travelling within the United States and iRacing have kept Davison busy over the NASCAR offseason.
Davison most recently took victory in the Monday Night Racing league on Jan. 11 at Auto Club Speedway.
The league features NASCAR drivers, IndyCar drivers, media members and team crew members in its lineups.
“It’s exciting,” Davison said. “That race in two weeks at Dover with a few of the NASCAR commentators is going to be really cool to be a part of… I’ve jumped on the bandwagon kind of late, but it’s going well so far.”
