Ryan Preece enters his second season at JTG Daugherty Racing in 2020, taking over the No. 37 Camaro ZL1 1LE.

Preece ended his rookie year in 2019 with one top-five finish and three top-10 finishes behind the wheel of the No. 47 Kroger Camaro ZL1. In his sophomore season in the NASCAR Cup Series, he’ll be working with crew chief Trent Owens and the No. 37 team to continue building on success at JTG Daugherty Racing.

Preece joined JTG Daugherty Racing from a recent stint with Joe Gibbs Racing in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, where he ran 15 races with one win, seven top five finishes and 10 top-10 finishes in 2018. He added four more races to his NXS career in 2019 racing for JR Motorsports, earning one top-five finish and four top-10 finishes. Out of a total of 59 NXS races, he has two wins (Iowa Speedway, 2017 and Bristol Motor Speedway, 2018), 12 top-five finishes, 19 top-10 finishes and one pole award.

Aside from his accomplishments in NASCAR’s premier series, the Berlin, Connecticut native is most well known in the Northeast, specifically in the short-track Modified racing scene. Preece was born into a Modified racing family, where his grandfather owned a team in Connecticut, and he worked on cars with his dad growing up. Preece began his racing career at just seven years old, starting out at his local track racing quarter midgets. During the ages of seven to eleven, he qualified for every quarter midget National race, in the process compiling more than 150 weekly wins at Silver City Speedway. He also competed in a Go Kart series and ran micro and midget races until he was 14.

In 2007, he made the jump to the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and finished 19th in the season standings during his rookie season. Throughout his Modified career, he made 155 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour starts, and has 22 wins, 76 top-five finishes and 102 top-10 finishes, winning the championship in 2013. Preece was also named to NASCAR’s elite “NASCAR NEXT” Class in 2013 and 2014.
