China Grove, NC (February 25, 2015) -Viva Motorsports is gearing up for the second race of the NASCAR Xfinity Series Season, the Hisense 250 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Jeffrey Earnhardt will once again be behind the wheel of the No. 55 Chevy Camaro.
This will mark the first appearance of the year for Viva Auto Group, a long time supporter of Viva Motorsports. While Viva Auto Group has been featured on the No. 55 racecar many times, this event will mark the first event Earnhardt will don their colors. Also onboard this weekend is Fronius USA. After a successful debut in the NASCAR Xfinity Series last weekend at Daytona, Fronius USA is continuing their support of the No 55 car.
The Viva Motorsports team looks to capitalize on the momentum from a solid 16th place run in the season opener. Crew Chief Mark Setzer has high hopes for this weekend’s race, “”Atlanta is a tough racetrack and tough on tires. We are hoping all of the changes we made over the winter will help us make the next step on taking Viva Motorsports to the next level.”
Jeffrey Earnhardt on Atlanta Motor Speedway: “Last year was my first time racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway in the Xfinity Series. I am looking forward to getting back out there in my No. 55 Fronius USA/Viva Auto Group Chevrolet, and seeing what we can do. This team has given me a great car, and we are able to get up there and compete with some of the top teams in the garage. Hopefully we will be able to bring home a finish this weekend that shows it.”
The Car: The Viva Motorsports team will be unloading chassis VM-010 as the primary race car and VM-005 will ride along as backup.
