Play: NASCAR Fantasy Live | Vote: Ultimate Daytona Challenge

Mario Gosselin will fill in for Martin Roy in the No. 90 Chevrolet for King Autosport in this week's NASCAR XFINITY Series slate at Daytona International Speedway.


Gosselin is the crew chief for the No. 90 team, but with Roy out because of a shoulder injury, he will get behind the wheel. The No. 90 Chevrolet is slated to be a full-time car for the Florida- and Montreal-based team.

The team is also running a second car, the No. 92 Chevrolet, at select events in the XFINITY Series this season. Dexter Bean will pilot that car at Daytona.

Roy, who made five starts in the XFINITY Series last season, acknowledges it is a bit of a complex plan.

"We have set ourselves a highly demanding task, both physically and financially," Roy said in a team release. "Mario and I are passionate about this sport, but we are also businessmen. We are convinced that our plan is realistic and vital to our credibility and success in the arena where we want to be: NASCAR."

Gosselin is no stranger to NASCAR competition. He has run two Sprint Cup Series events, three XFINITY Series events and 47 Camping World Truck Series events in his career. Bean has made five career NASCAR national series starts, with three coming in the Camping World Truck Series and one each in the Sprint Cup Series and XFINITY Series.

The Alert Today Florida 300 takes place Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1.
