Creed To Make USAC Debut
NASCAR Xfinity Star Creed To Make USAC Midget Debut at BC39

Abacus Racing announced July 5 it will field a second entry for NASCAR Xfinity driver Sheldon Creed for the fourth running of the Driven2SaveLives BC39 Presented by WeatherTech. 

Creed will drive in the USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship event at The Dirt Track at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Aug. 3-4 alongside full-time Abacus Racing driver Maria Cofer, who made her debut with the team at the event in 2021.

“As a team, we have been talking about running a second car for a few events this year, and what better place to make that happen than the Indianapolis Motor Speedway at the BC39 where the team had its first race last year,” said Brent Cox, team principal for Abacus Racing.

Creed, 24, from El Cajon, California, comes to the team with an extensive racing resume. He drives the No. 2 Chevrolet Camaro for Richard Childress Racing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and won the NASCAR Camping World Truck Serieschampionship in 2020. He also has raced in Stadium Super Trucks, Trans Am, ARCA and K & N Series.

“As a driver, I want to race as much as I possibly can and to drive anything I possibly can,” Creed said. “I have always wanted to drive a midget, so I am very excited at the opportunity.”

Abacus Racing has a test session planned for Creed in the midget before the BC39.

“I am coming here to be competitive,” Creed said. The level of talent at this race is always very strong, from series regulars to other entrants who come to drive this race because of its significance. I want to learn as much as I can from that test so it can translate to the event. I want to provide all the feedback I can for myself and the team.”
