Frankie Muniz Eyes NASCAR Debut at Daytona with Joey Gase Motorsports

Daytona, FL – In an unexpected crossover of entertainment and motorsports, actor Frankie Muniz, widely known for his role in the hit television series “Malcolm in the Middle,” is set to take a major leap in his racing career. After a full season in the ARCA Menards Series where he secured one top-five finish and an impressive 11 top-tens, Muniz is now gearing up for his first-ever NASCAR Xfinity Series start this weekend at Daytona International Speedway.

Muniz, who will be driving the No. 35 Chevrolet for Joey Gase Motorsports, is looking to translate his success in the developmental ARCA series to the highly competitive NASCAR national series. Although he’s a newcomer to Xfinity, his dedication and performance in ARCA have shown that he takes his racing career as seriously as his acting.

The actor-turned-racer has expressed his gratitude for his support, particularly from Ford and Ford Performance. “I am very fortunate to have the unwavering support of Ford and Ford Performance through my NASCAR journey,” Muniz said. “I am very humbled yet excited to be teamed up with Joey Gase Motorsports to attempt my NASCAR Xfinity Series debut next weekend at Daytona International Speedway.”

Muniz’s transition to NASCAR is a significant challenge, given the step up in competition and the intense nature of racing at Daytona, known for its high speeds and close-quarter racing. His only ARCA start at Daytona saw him begin in 16th and cross the finish line in 11th, showing promise that he can hold his own on the famed tri-oval.

Working alongside experienced crew chief Wayne Carroll Jr., Muniz will have the guidance to tackle the steep learning curve. The combination of Muniz’s raw talent and Carroll’s expertise could prove to be a successful formula on the track.

Fans of Muniz and motorsport enthusiasts alike will be keeping a close eye on the No. 35 Chevrolet as the actor seeks to make a name for himself in one of NASCAR’s top-tier series. With the green flag set to wave over the Daytona International Speedway, all eyes will be on Frankie Muniz to see if he can steer his Hollywood narrative toward a new role as a competitive NASCAR driver.

As the engines rev and tense anticipation fills the air, one thing is clear: Frankie Muniz is not just playing a part; he’s racing to create his legacy in the high-octane world of NASCAR.
