Fort Kent's Austin Theriault is back in a NASCAR Xfinity Series car this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway. He will race the #25 car for the Rick Ware Racing Team.

Theriault has a deal to race Saturday in Texas and next week in Phoenix with the #25 car. That car has had several drivers this season and sits in 29th place in owner points.

Rick Ware Racing is based in North Carolina and races in NASCAR's Xfinity Series and the truck series.

Theriault is hoping to show what he can do late in this NASCAR season in hopes of getting a full-time ride next season the Xfinity Series or the Camping World Truck Series.

After two rounds of practice Friday, race qualifying for the pole position is this morning at 11:45am and the race begins at 3:30pm, live on NBC TV.
