Ryan Ellis, who has competed in 77 NASCAR national series races since 2012, announced he will run in two Xfinity races this season with B.J. McLeod Motorsports.

Ellis will run at Iowa Speedway (June 16) and at Road America (Aug. 24). Ellis finished 17th at Road America last year for B.J. McLeod Motorsports.

Ellis will partner with country music group, the Wes Cook Band. The band’s song, “I Stand for the Flag,” will serve as inspiration for a design on the No. 99 that Ellis will drive.

“I am thrilled to represent not only the Wes Cook Band, but also this song,” Ellis said.

“To be able to work with all of these great partners and have Enlisted Nine, Audio Video Specialists, Top Cover and Nine Line Apparel join us is huge. I would not have this opportunity without them, and I appreciate them coming on board and can’t wait to race with B.J. McLeod and his group again this season.”
