Brennan Poole picks up two more NASCAR Xfinity races to run


Brennan Poole will compete in two additional NASCAR Xfinity races, HScott Motorsports with Chip Ganassi announced Monday.

Poole, who was scheduled to compete in 15 Xfinity races, will add both races at Iowa Speedway (May 17 and Aug. 1) to his schedule.

Poole has made two starts this season, finishing ninth in his series debut last month at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and 26th at Phoenix International Raceway.

“He has really impressed me so far this year with his performances in Las Vegas and Phoenix,’’ team owner Harry Scott Jr. said in a team release. “The Iowa Speedway configuration should play right into Brennan’s skill set, and I’m looking forward to seeing him have successful runs at each event.’’

Poole will drive for the team this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway.
