DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Bill Davis Racing has announced that it will tap into its pool of veteran Cup Series drivers to pilot the No. 27 Toyota Camry during the next several Sprint Cup Series races. Truck Series standouts Mike Skinner and Johnny Benson are both expected to step behind the wheel of BDR’s No. 27 entry.
Bill Davis Racing will continue to support Jacques Villeneuve in his pursuit of a successful career in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Villeneuve failed to make the Daytona 500 when he crashed out of the second Gatorade Duel.
“We know that Jacques has the talent and the desire to be in NASCAR, and are diligently working on a long-term relationship with him,” team owner Bill Davis said.
Mike Skinner, last year’s Truck Series runner-up, will drive the No. 27 Toyota Camry next weekend at California Speedway.
