MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Matt Mills will make his NASCAR Cup Series debut this weekend at Kansas Speedway in the No. 55 Ford Mustang fielded by BJ McLeod Motorsports.
The No. 55 Ford Mills will drive will carry sponsorship from Siebert Electric. J.F. Electric, a long-time partner of Mills in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, will also sponsor Mills during his Cup Series debut.
“We are excited about partnering with Matt Mills and his Racing team. As a son of a Marine, Matt and his team align with the Siebert Electric team’s core values of hard work, determination, superb quality, and family values,” said Ryan Siebert of Siebert Electric.
“There aren’t words to explain what Sunday will mean to my family and I,” said Mills. “There was a time not that long ago that we struggled to get to our local short track. Racing in the NASCAR Cup Series has been a lifelong dream thanks to B.J., Jessica (McLeod), and J.F. Electric for all they have done for me and continue to do for me, as well as Thompson Electric. With the addition of Siebert Electric & Little Joe’s Auto, I’m achieving that dream. My goal for Sunday is to be smart, learn, earn respect, and complete the entire race. I can’t wait to get to the track.”
Mills currently races full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for BJ McLeod Motorsports aboard the No. 5 entry.
“We’re thrilled to have Matt make his NCS debut,” said team owner B.J. McLeod. “We wanted to get him a Cup debut with as much experience as possible. With all of the NXS racing he and his partners (J.F. Electric, Utilitra) have done, it’s time to get him a Cup start. You only get one first start and to have him do it for us is pretty cool for Jessica and I and its something we wanted to see happen.”
