NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour driver Cole Powell of Mount Brydges, Ontario will test at Daytona International Speedway this week in advance of his ARCA Racing Series debut on February 15, 2014.
“(It) just happened though connections with people knowing people and we were guided towards Empire,” Powell said.
Empire Racing is based in Mooresville, NC and owned by John Corr. The car will be either #8 or #48. There are no additional ARCA races are planned at this time. Powell could not provide specifics regarding a potential ride in the NASCAR Nationwide or Camping World Truck Series.
