MacDonald Planning Sprint Cup Debut
LOUDON, N.H. – NASCAR K&N Pro Series East veteran Eddie MacDonald will attempt to make his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut driving the No. 32 Go FAS Racing Ford at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on July 13.
The team will be sponsored by Blue Vase Marketing, which is located in Beverly, Mass., and owned by Michael Alden.
“I was talking with Mike (Alden) some time ago and he expressed interest in sponsoring a New England driver for the NHMS race and asked me if I knew of anyone, “ said team co-owner Archie St. Hilaire. “I immediately said ‘I sure do’ and gave him Eddie’s name. Eddie is a great driver with a lot of successful experience at this track with six wins. I love Eddie, his family, and his entire race team. They are a great bunch of people and I couldn’t be happier for Eddie and our team. It will be a lot of fun and with Eddie’s experience we hope to have a strong run.”
“This is my dream come true,” said MacDonald. “I can’t thank Archie, Frank (Stoddard, team co-owner), and Mike enough for giving me this opportunity to race in the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. It has always been a goal to drive a Cup car and to do it at my home track with family, friends, and supporters from all over New England is something very special to me.”
MacDonald has raced in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East since 2001, earning seven victories and a best finish of second in the series championship standings in 2009. He has made one NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start and two NASCAR Nationwide Series starts.
