Athenian Motorsports announced today they will be competing in a total of thirteen NASCAR Nationwide Series races with John Wes Townley as driver of the No. 25 Zaxby’s Toyota Camry.

Townley comes off a 13th place finish in the Nationwide Series in the team’s debut at Talladega Superspeedway, Saturday, May 3, 2014.

Athenian Motorsports, LLC will enter Townley at both Charlotte Motor Speedway races, Kentucky Speedway, Daytona Int’l Speedway, Chicagoland, Indianapolis, Bristol, Richmond, Kansas, Texas, Phoenix and Homestead Miami Speedway NASCAR Nationwide Series events.

“We had a good run at Talladega,” John Wes Townley said. “We pulled off a top-15 finish in our first time out as a team.  Finishing 13th is great for any Nationwide team.  And for one just starting out, I think we did pretty well!  We just wanted to kind of get out there and earn some respect as a team and I think we did that.  The Zaxby’s Toyota Camry came out looking pretty good and that’s what we wanted.  Our next 12 races will help us learn and grow as a team and be bettered prepared for running the full 2015 NASCAR Nationwide Series schedule.”  

Townley will continue to compete full time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck and ARCA Racing presented by Menards Series in 2014.
