Eric McClure will make his return to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for the season-opening Daytona 500. McClure will drive the No. 35 Ford Fusion for Front Row Motorsports with support of Hefty/Reynolds Wrap serving as the primary sponsorship. This would be the first start for McClure in the Daytona 500.

"This is an exciting time for me and certainly our sponsoring brands as well," said McClure. "In our sport, and for my family, there is nothing greater than the Daytona 500 and this opportunity will enhance our program in a unique way. Front Row and I have a history together; they have always represented their partners and ours in a professional manner. They are very strong on the super speedways and I enjoy this type of racing more than any other. Racing in the Daytona 500 has always been a dream of mine and I look forward to getting to Daytona, working with this team, and trying to achieve this goal."

Front Row Motorsports has become known for his performance on the super speedways, with a victory and six top-10 finishes on the super speedways including David Ragan's victory at Talladega in April of 2013.

"We know our cars are really strong at the plate races and we're making a lot of gains on the other tracks, too, and that's getting people's attention," said team owner Bob Jenkins. "Hefty® and Reynolds® are household names, and we're excited to represent such a respected company on our car with a veteran driver like Eric behind the wheel."
