Conley to drive limited Nationwide schedule for RCR

Cale Conley will drive a limited Nationwide Series schedule in the No. 33 Chevy for Richard Childress Racing starting March 15 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Nick Harrison will be his crew chief.

Conley competed full-time in the K&N Pro Series East tour last year and finished 12th in the point standings. He earned his first K&N win at Columbus and posted poles at Gresham and Iowa in 2012. Although Conley didn’t compete on the tour full-time that season, his 299 laps led ranked third among drivers.

Conley, 21, began competing at age 5. He advanced through Quarter Midgets at 12, then Kenyon Midgets and winged and wingless sprint cars while dabbling in USAC before moving to the K&N Pro Series and X-1R Pro Series in 2011.
