Heim set for third 23XI Cup Series entry at Nashville

Corey Heim will drive a third 23XI Racing entry at Nashville Superspeedway in June.

Heim, who is a reserve driver for 23XI Racing and Legacy Motor Club, will be in the black and gold No. 50 Mobil 1 Toyota Camry. The organization is fielding a third car in select NASCAR Cup Series races in collaboration with Mobil 1 and Toyota Racing Development as the oil brand celebrates its 50th anniversary.

“I’m very thankful for this opportunity I’ve been given by Mobil 1 to compete with 23XI in Nashville,” Heim said. “Through my time with Toyota, I’ve had the opportunity to meet so many amazing people, including those from Mobil 1. We have seen this season how strong 23XI’s Camrys have been, which makes me even more excited to get behind the wheel in Nashville. I’m putting in the effort to be prepared for this opportunity and cannot wait to get on track with the No. 50 Mobil 1 Toyota team in a few weeks.”


Heim has already made two Cup Series starts. He filled in for the injured Erik Jones at Dover Motor Speedway (April 28) and Kansas Speedway (May 5).

The 21-year-old Heim is a full-time competitor in the Craftsman Truck Series with TRICON Garage. Heim has two wins through the first eight races in the Truck Series and leads the point standings.

“We are excited for Corey to join the 23XI team in Nashville as he helps us celebrate our partners at Mobil 1 and its 50th anniversary,” said Steve Lauletta, President of 23XI Racing. “Corey is undoubtedly an up-and-coming star, and we look forward to working with him as he prepares to race at Nashville. Mobil 1 has a history of working with some of the best young talent in racing, and I can’t think of a better person than Corey to drive the No. 50 Toyota at Nashville.”

23XI Racing first fielded the No. 50 Toyota at Circuit of The Americas in March for Kamui Kobayashi.
