Paula Harraka has joined the driver stable of NASCAR Nationwide Series team TriStar Motorsports and will make his debut with the team on May 31 at Dover (Del.) International Speedway. He'll be driving the No. 44 Toyota.

"Dover is about as close to home as it gets for me, so there's no better place to make my debut with TriStar Motorsports," Harraka said. "We have dedicated a lot of time to put this all together, and we want to make the most of it. I'm excited to be working with Mark, Greg and the entire team and can't wait to hit the race track."

Harraka participated in NASCAR Drive for Diversity program and has four previous Nationwide Series starts. The most recent of those starts came last season at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif. He also has 11 starts to his credit in the Camping World Truck Series and a single start at the Sprint Cup level.

Harraka competed in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West for two full seasons, winning three times -- twice in 2009 and again in 2010. He finished in the top-five of the series championship standings both those years.
