Scott Lagasse Jr. will drive in the DRIVE4COPD 300, the NASCAR Nationwide Series season-opening race at Daytona International Speedway.

In a joint effort between RAB Racing and TeamSLR, Lagasse Jr. will be in the No. 29 Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow Toyota Camry. Matt Lucas will serve as the team’s crew chief for the race.

The start will be Lagasse Jr.’s 56th in the Nationwide Series and his fifth career NNS start at Daytona.

The "Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow" initiative is a focused initiative of the Florida Department of Transportation and began in 2011 with the goal of increasing awareness and decreasing crashes, injuries and fatalities of bicyclists and pedestrians in the state of Florida.

"Driving the Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow at Daytona is a great opportunity for TeamSLR to partner with RAB Racing and FDOT," Lagasse Jr. said in a release. "I look forward to working with Robby Benton and crew chief Matt Lucas on the No. 29 Toyota Camry. I am excited to partner with FDOT to spread the word and remind everyone of the dangers for pedestrians and bicycles on the road. We can all help reduce deaths if we stay alert and pay attention. Please join me in making a difference."
