"I have been racing for many years and it is my passion," Disdier said in a team release. "Since I was a boy I have dreamed of racing in NASCAR and everything I have done since has been directed at realizing my dream. In a few weeks my dream will come true and to describe the excitement I now feel is impossible."

Team owner Bobby Dotter will serve as the crew chief for the No. 07 truck, according to the release.

Disdier did test the truck at last month’s Preseason Thunder.

The 39-year-old native of France has raced throughout Europe in his racing career. He has also made a start in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series and 11 starts in the ARCA Racing Series in his career.
