James Davison is set to make his NASCAR debut in the Xfinity Series at the Road America 180 Fired Up by Johnsonville this weekend.

Davison has landed a seat with King Autosport to handle the #90 Always Evolving, AERNOW, ReplayXD, Cruz Associates-backed Chevrolet.

The Pirelli World Challenge and IMSA driver will be the third Australian in the Xfinity field at the Wisconsin circuit after Owen Kelly fills in for a second successive start in the #18 Joe Gibbs Toyota while Kenny Habul will be in the #88 SunEnergy Chevrolet.

Davison steps in for regular driver Mario Gosselin who will switch to the pit box to call the shots as crew chief.

A two-times starter in the Indianapolis 500, Davison has previous success at Road America with a pole in the GT IMSA class in 2014 and a win in the Pirelli World Challenge last year.

“I’m really looking forward to being a NASCAR driver for the first time and maximising all that we have to score the best possible result,” Davison said.
