NASCAR Cup Series
Mike Rockenfeller to Pilot No. 42 LMC Entry at Indianapolis and Watkins Glen
Aug 8, 2023
Mike Rockenfeller, a two-time winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, will return to LEGACY MOTOR CLUB for the October 8 event at Charlotte Motor Speedway's ROVAL, the team announced Friday.
The 39-year-old driver will be contesting his fifth career start in the NASCAR Cup Series when he straps into the No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro at the 2.280-mile purpose-built road course in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Earlier in the season, the Neuwied, Germany-native was tapped to compete in back-to-back road course events for the two-car organization at Indianapolis Motor Speedway's Road Course and Watkins Glen International.
In each of his two excursions this season, Rockenfeller would improve upon his career-best result, finishing 24th at Indianapolis, before improving that mark to a 19th-place result at Watkins Glen.
Over the last four weeks, LEGACY MOTOR CLUB has tapped NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series regular Carson Hocevar to pilot the No. 42 Sunseeker Resorts Chevrolet, in which the driver has recorded four top-20 runs in four starts, including a season-high 11th at Bristol.
LEGACY MOTOR CLUB has yet to announce who will fill the seat of the No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro beyond next weekend's event at Charlotte Motor Speedway's ROVAL.
