Sisters set to make XFINITY Series debut together at Iowa Speedway
Obaika Racing announced on Wednesday that sisters Paige and Claire Decker will make their NASCAR XFINITY Series debut together in Sunday's race at Iowa Speedway (FS1, 1:30 p.m. ET).
Paige, 23, and Claire, 21, have both raced in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Martinsville Speedway this year. Paige finished 25th while Claire raced to a 27th-place result.
Both drivers have also participated in the NASCAR diversity program in 2014.
On Sunday, Paige will be behind the wheel of the No. 97 entry, while Claire will drive the team's new No. 77 Chevrolet.
"It's not often you see two girls, yet alone sisters, in a NASCAR race," said team owner Victor Obaika. "We are really excited about this opportunity and hopefully this experience will open doors for many more female drivers."
