NASCAR legend and 2000 NASCAR Cup Series Champion Bobby Labonte will be back behind the wheel of a Euro NASCAR car this weekend at Valencia, Spain for the 2019 NWES season opener. Labonte will drive the #70 Mishumotors Chevrolet SS in the ELITE 1 Division for the German team, sharing the car with team owner Mirco Schultis.
“The racing is really good and the competition is getting stronger every year in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series so I am excited to get back in the car at the GP of Spain. Last year’s race in Valencia was pretty intense, especially in turn one. We had some great door-to-door battles along the way and it will be great to take what we learned last year and drive there for the second time,”said the NASCAR Hall Of Fame nominee of the opportunity to return to the European NASCAR Series on April 13-14. “More and more European fans are discovering the special atmosphere of the Euro NASCAR events and it will be great to meet them again in Valencia this weekend.”
