MOORESVILLE, N.C. — team release — NASCAR photo — Athenian Motorsports announced today they will compete in a total of 13 NASCAR Nationwide Series races this season with John Wes Townley driving their No. 25 Zaxby’s Toyota Camry.

Townley comes off a 13th-place finish in the team’s Nationwide Series debut at Talladega Superspeedway last Saturday.

Athenian Motorsports will run Townley at both Charlotte Motor Speedway races, Kentucky Speedway, Daytona Int’l Speedway, Chicagoland, Indianapolis, Bristol, Richmond, Kansas, Texas, Phoenix and the 2014 season finale at Homestead Miami Speedway.

“We had a good run at Talladega,” said Townley. “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 get out there and earn some respect as a team and I think we did that.

“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.
