NASCAR driver, Ryan Ellis has been busy the last several months as he prepares for a more rigorous racing schedule in 2021.
Ellis will start the 2021 season by competing at the Chili Bowl in Tulsa, Oklahoma for his third attempt at the historic event.
Ellis’s 2021 schedule won’t stop there, as he will include a part time Cup schedule as well as a part time Xfinity Series schedule.
In November, Ellis told Kickin’ the Tires that he will return to the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2021 for BJ McLoud Motorsports for a six to eight-race deal.
This will be Ellis first return to the series since Road America in summer of 2019.
“I’m really excited! It’s so tough in this sport to lock races down in advance without huge family money or a big corporate sponsor,” Ellis told Kickin’ the Tires. “I’ve been lucky to have some great companies transition with me and give me these opportunities in 2021, and I’m really excited to announce those in the coming weeks”.
When it comes to the NASCAR Cup Series, Ellis announced on Fox 46’s program, Charlotte’s Sports Live, that he will be piloting the Go Fas Racing, No. 32 Ford Mustang in the series next season if sponsorship is found.
Go Fas Racing announced in October that the team would be scaling back in 2021 to a part-time schedule competing in roughly eight to ten races in the series.
Ellis has five career starts in the NASCAR Cup Series, most recently racing for BK Racing in 2016. If Ellis races for Go Fas Racing in 2021, he will attempt his first-ever Daytona 500 to start the season.
