With the addition of the Chase format in the Xfinity Series this Season, Obaika Racing is geared up and ready to pull out all stops.
Obaika Racing fielded the #97 car successfully in its debut 2015 season, giving opportunities to various drivers and finishing top 30 in owner points. The Team is in the process of rolling out two teams in the 2016 Xfinity Series and is pleased to announce that Harrison Rhodes has been signed on as a team driver as a step in its duo-team efforts.
“Our hallmark is tenacity and that has set us apart.” said Victor Obaika, Team Owner. “We faced our challenges and persevered throughout the 2015 Season. We believe Harrison has also shown tenacity in his race opportunities and this is a trait that we have in common.”
Rhodes, 22, of NC, had a great season driving the #0 car in the 2015 Xfinity season with 10 top ‘25’s and finished 24th in driver points through 29 races. Rhodes is absolutely excited to be part of the Team and we are glad to have him via the instrumentality of VroomBrands, the primary sponsor for Obaika Racing.
