Veteran Canadian road racer - and now racing circuit co-owner - Ron Fellows of Mississauga will partner Danica Patrick at three NASCAR Nationwide Series races between now and Labour Day as he once again has agreed to terms with Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s JR Motorsports team.
Fellows will return to the seat he’s occupied for the last four years for the Nationwide races at Road America this weekend, Watkins Glen on Aug. 11 and Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve in Montreal on Aug. 18.
Patrick, in her first full season of Nationwide competition, and regular teammate Cole Whitt have been joined on occasion this season by a third driver - including their boss, Earnhardt.
Fellows is a former winner for JR Motorsports, finishing first in JRM’s No. 5 Chevrolet at the Montreal race in 2008. In his NASCAR career, Fellows has won four Nationwide races; the other three all came at Watkins Glen.
