Harrison Rhodes will drive for the No. 24 Toyota for SR2 Motorsports at Daytona International Speedway in the NASCAR Nationwide Series opener, the DRIVE4COPD 300 on Feb. 22.
The race will be Rhodes' first at Daytona and also his first restrictor-plate race. He took part in Preseason Thunder testing at Daytona last month.
HOODZ Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning and DUCTZ Air Duct Cleaning and HVAC Restoration have teamed up to partner with Rhodes for the race weekend.
"I am extremely excited for the opportunity to drive the No. 24 HOODZ & DUCTZ Toyota at Daytona," Rhodes said in a team release.
Rhodes, 20, made his Nationwide debut last season at Phoenix in March. He posted a 25th-place finish. In 2013, Rhodes made seven starts, with his best result (23rd) coming in the June race at Iowa Speedway.
"Harrison is a great young driver that I have been watching a lot this past season," team owner Jason Sciavicco said. "He shows great poise behind the wheel, has shown significant improvement in the Nationwide Series car and is excellent working with his marketing partners."
