Circle Sport announced on Wednesday that NASCAR veteran driver David Stremme will drive the team’s No. 33 Chevrolet entry in Sunday’s STP 500 Sprint Cup Series race at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway. It’ll be his first Sprint Cup start of the season. He’ll have sponsorship backing from Mace.
“I am excited to return to racing in the Sprint Cup Series,” Stremme said. “The Circle Sport team has done a great job in building their race program and the success of the No. 33 car.”
Stremme most recently raced at the Sprint Cup level in 2013 with Swan Racing in that organization’s No. 30 car. In all, he has 190 starts in Sprint Cup that have resulted in three top-10 finishes, all coming in 2007 while driving the No. 40 car for Chip Ganassi Racing. Stremme has a total of 340-career starts across all three of NASCAR’s national touring series (Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Truck).
So far this year, Brian Scott, a regular in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, has driven the No. 33 in three races with a best finish of 25th coming in the season-opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February. Timmy Hill has driven the car twice, so far, in 2014.
