CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Travis Pastrana will have a guaranteed spot in the field for his Nationwide Series debut next week at Richmond.
The extreme sports star will race a Toyota that will be fielded jointly between Michael Waltrip Racing and RAB Racing. Kenny Wallace has been the primary driver of RAB's No. 09 car.
The car number will be changed to No. 99 for Pastrana. MWR will provide cars and technical and marketing support for RAB under the alliance announced Tuesday.
Pastrana had been scheduled to make his Nationwide debut last July, but broke his right ankle in the X Games two days before the race.
Pastrana is also scheduled to race at Darlington and Charlotte in May. MWR also has New Hampshire, Chicago, Indianapolis and Atlanta on his tentative schedule.
