Roush Fenway Racing will field a NASCAR Xfinity Series entry for Chase Briscoe, Ty Majeski and Austin Cindric next season.

The three Ford Performance development drivers will share the No. 60 alongside full-time driver Ryan Reed in the No. 16.

“Driver development has always been part of our DNA at Roush Fenway and Jack Roush has always taken pride in providing opportunities for up and coming drivers,” said Roush Fenway president Steve Newmark. “All three of these drivers have exhibited a great deal of potential on and off the track, and it’s going to be a lot of fun to watch as they hone their skills together and grow into the next generation of champions in our sport.”

Briscoe is a Ford Performance factory supported driver, who has transitioned from dirt to asphalt in recent years. He captured the 2016 ARCA Racing Series championship and then finished sixth in his rookie Truck Series campaign, including rookie of the year honors.

The 22-year-old won the Ford EcoBoost 200 from the pole on Friday, his first victory at NASCAR’s third-tier level.

Majeski, 23, is a Super Late Model standout who has won some of the biggest races in that discipline before making his initial push toward NASCAR. He is a former World Series of Asphalt champion at New Smyrna Speedway and has also a four-time ARCA Midwest Tour champion.

Cindric, 19, is the son of Team Penske president Tim Cindric. He competed in the championship race on Friday and finished third against champion Christopher Bell, Johnny Sauter and Matt Crafton. He earned eight top-fives and 16 top-10s.

Briscoe and Cindric were teammates at Brad Keselowski Racing in 2017, the team’s final season before shutting down on Monday.
