Bill McAnally Racing announced Tuesday that Julia Landauer will join the team as one of their four drivers for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series in 2016.
The 24-year-old Stanford University graduate and New York City native won a NASCAR track championship in 2015, but will enter her rookie season in the pro series. Landauer will race all 14 events in the K&N Pro Series West, which kicks off March 19 in Irwindale, Calif. and select events in the Pro Series East, which begins on Valentine’s Day in New Smyrna Beach, Fla.
“I couldn’t be more excited to be racing in the K&N Pro Series with Bill McAnally Racing,” Landauer said in a press release. “Bill and I have worked together in the past, so I’m really looking forward to building on that relationship for a great team dynamic this year.
“After a track championship in 2015, it’s time to carry that momentum into 2016,” she said. “BMR is a successful, hard working group of people who produce top-notch equipment and I can’t wait to get on track for the first race. A huge thank you to all of the partners who helped make this season come together.”
In addition to joining BMR, Landauer has also paired with Excelle Sports as a member of our Athletes Council. We’re sure she’ll be a huge asset to both teams.
