Preview: Leland Honeyman Jr. Eyes Strong Showing at Talladega in the Ag-Pro 300

Written by: Adrian Beecher

This Saturday, the NASCAR Xfinity Series will race into the Talladega Superspeedway for the Ag-Pro 300, with Leland Honeyman Jr. behind the wheel of the No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro for Young’s Motorsports. Starting from the 33rd position, Honeyman and his team view this as a strategic advantage, offering the young driver the chance to showcase his overtaking skills at this iconic 2.66-mile oval—the largest on the 2024 circuit.

Earlier this year, Young’s Motorsports shifted from the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN® Truck Series to compete full-time in the Xfinity Series, investing in emerging talents like Honeyman. His racing journey, which began at a young age in Quads and progressed through national championships in Bandolero to competitive stints in Late Models, underscores his readiness and drive for higher stakes in racing.

Under the guidance of seasoned crew chief Andrew Abbott, who marks his 106th race in the Xfinity Series, the team is poised for a significant performance. They are optimistic about turning a mid-pack start into a strong finish, leveraging the unpredictability of superspeedway racing.

The partnership with Mezrano Law Firm not only boosts the team’s competitive edge but also resonates with shared values of resilience and community support—traits that Honeyman carries into every race.

Entering Talladega, Honeyman has valuable experience with 16 career NASCAR Xfinity Series races, including a career-best 11th place finish at Phoenix Raceway earlier this year. His performance at Talladega could significantly propel his standings for the season.

The Ag-Pro 300 offers Honeyman and Young’s Motorsports an opportunity to make a statement at a track famous for its dramatic racing and surprises. Starting 33rd, Honeyman is well-positioned to navigate through the field and seize the opportunity to bring eyes on him as he works toward the front.

The race will take place on Saturday, April 20, 2024, with live coverage starting shortly after 3:00 p.m. local time. Fans can catch the action on FOX, listen on the Motor Racing Network, or tune into SiriusXM NASCAR Channel 90.
