RCM/NFR Push Back Debut
The newly formed racing team of Rick Clark Motorsports/No Fear Racing has decided not to attempt this weekend’s Kobalt Tools 500 from Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Originally, the team planned to debut this weekend with driver Boris Said. But, upon further thought, the team decided it would be better to debut at a track where they felt like they had a legitimate chance of winning.
The team now plans to debut at the Toyota/SaveMart 350 from Infineon Raceway in June. Said has been a NASCAR regular on road courses the past few years, and is referred to as a “road course ringer.” His familiarity with the track, no doubt, has played a part in the decision.
No word on who will sponsor the team when it debuts, but it will most likely be No Fear, which has sponsored Said in the past.
Earlier this year, Said attempted to qualify for the Daytona 500 in the No. 08 of EM Motorsports. James Hilton was slated to attempt the Daytona 500 in NFR’s No. 60, but because he did not practice, he was not able to qualify.
