There will be a new car on track during the NASCAR Xfinity Series race this weekend at Iowa. H2 Motorsports will make their first attempt to race their No. 28 Toyota Camry with Shane Lee behind the wheel.

Entrepreneur Matt Hurley brought the team to life, announcing the project back in May.
“Entering any professional sport as a team owner is a significant commitment and undertaking,” Hurley said in a release earlier in the year. “I’ve followed NASCAR closely for a number of years and appreciate the opportunity that is in front of H2 Motorsports. My due diligence has taught me much and reinforced my belief that now is the right time to build a team capable of winning races and ultimately championships. We are so proud to welcome Circuit City as the flagship sponsor for H2 Motorsports and look forward to reintroducing this brand — and many others — to the most brand-loyal fans anywhere.”
Lee competed with RCR during the 2018 season, running the famed No. 3 Camaro. Lee brought home three top ten finishes and one top five finish last season.
Pete Rondeau will handle crew chief responsibilities for the team. Rondeau was most recently with Furniture Row Racing, serving as the competition director for the now closed race team.
Lee’s Circuit City No. 28 machine will be one to keep an eye on this weekend in the Xfinity Series.
