Future NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Connor Zilisch is looking forward to his 18th birthday for more reasons than one.

Less than two months after officially becoming an adult, the 2024 Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona winner will prepare for his series debut at Watkins Glen International on Sept. 14.

JR Motorsports has earned a reputation for giving up-and-coming drivers a chance to prove themselves at the NASCAR level. It appears they signed another top prospect.

“We couldn’t be happier to welcome Connor into the JR Motorsports family and to give him an opportunity behind the wheel of our No. 88 Chevrolet,” JR Motorsports CEO Kelley Earnhardt Miller said via press release. “Connor is an extremely talented young man and we can’t wait to see what he can do when he gets to the track with us at Watkins Glen.”

Zilisch, a Mooresville, N.C., native, placed P2 during his ARCA Menards Series debut last year. As a teenager, he has claimed several national karting titles and, in 2021, set six Sports Car Club of America track records.

Signed a multi-year deal to serve as a developmental pilot for Trackhouse Racing, Zilisch also is slated to drive JR Motorsports’ No. 88 Chevrolet for Xfinity events at Kansas Speedway (Sept. 28), Homestead-Miami Speedway (Oct. 26) and Phoenix Raceway (Nov. 9).

“It’s a dream come true to have the opportunity to race in the Xfinity Series with JR Motorsports for select races this year,” Zilisch said. “I have a lot to learn, considering that I’ve never raced in stock cars on the big tracks, but there’s no better team to learn with than JRM. I can’t thank everyone at Chevrolet enough for all their support in helping me get to this point, and I can’t wait to give my all to make the most of this opportunity.”
