MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Live Fast Motorsports announced Thursday that Scott Heckert will wheel the No. 78 Ford Mustang with Motorsport Games as the primary sponsor during Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series event on the Daytona Int’l Speedway Road Course.
“We are so excited to have Scott driving for us at the Daytona Road Course,” said team co-owner B.J. McLeod. “He’s an absolute wheel-man on road courses, and his stats show just that.”
“This is a special moment for me and it’s even better that I get to drive for two of my close friends,” said Heckert. “It’s been great getting to witness B.J. and Matt (Tifft) build this new team and I’m honored to represent them at their first road course race.”
When B.J. and Jessica McLeod brought on Heckert as their second driver in their late-model driver development program, they would have never imagined their relationship with Heckert would blossom to what it has transpired to be over time. In 2016, Heckert made his Xfinity Series debut with BJ McLeod Motorsports where he earned his finish in the Xfinity Series at Watkins Glen Int’l.
Heckert also found success in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East after racing full-time for three years. In 2014, Heckert earned two road course wins in the K&N Series at Watkins Glen and Virginia Int’l Raceway. In 2015, Heckert drove for Justin Marks and HScott Motorsports where he recorded two wins, again, at Watkins Glen as well as Bowman Gray Stadium.
