Jeff Green will begin a five-race stint behind the wheel of the No. 14 TriStar Motorsports Toyota for NASCAR Nationwide Series competition this weekend, racing in the Buckle Up 200 at Dover (Del.) International Speedway. Eric McClure is usually in the No. 14.
"I'm so honored to be able to race the Hefty/Reynolds Wrap Toyota these five races," Green said. "I hope that I can be an added asset to the team. I can't thank Hefty, TriStar and the McClure family enough for this opportunity."
Green will also drive the car at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Mich., on June 14 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio, on Aug. 16, at Richmond (Va.) International Raceway on Sept. 5 and again at Dover on Sept. 27.
Green has been a part of the TriStar driver stable since 2010, mostly driving the No. 10. He's also driven the No. 14 previously as a substitute driver for McClure. When driving the No. 10, Green is usually a start-and-parker. The No. 14, though, usually runs complete races.
Green's heyday in the Nationwide Series came in the late 1990s and early 2000s, a time that included a series championship in 2000. That year he won a series-high six races. He won four more times in 2001. His last two of his 16-career Nationwide wins came in 2002.
