Tommy Baldwin Racing has hired 2013 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Ryan Preece to run two races in the 2014 Nationwide Series.
Preece will drive the No. 36 Chevrolet at Richmond International Raceway and in New Hampshire. In seven years of competition in the NWMT, Preece has 11 poles and nine wins in 95 career starts.
Sponsorship for Preece's two NNS races will come from New York-based East West Marine.
"Making the best of this opportunity is key," Preece said. "I'm lucky to have someone like Tommy (Baldwin) pushing and supporting me. He's given me a 'true' opportunity that is very hard to come by in today's racing. Driving for Tommy is fun because he's from 'Modified country' and has the same personality we all do. All the guys at TBR are hardcore racers and all have the same goal in mind."
