Kyle Tilley to Make NASCAR Cup Series Debut with Live Fast Motorsports

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., (May 11, 2021) – Kyle Tilley, 2021 Rolex 24 at Daytona race winner and Asian Le Mans Series LMP2 Am champion, will make his NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) debut later this month at Circuit of the Americas with Live Fast Motorsports.

Tilley, who is currently competing in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and European Le Mans Series as well as historic racing, will add four NSC races to his 2021 season, racing the No. 78 Ford Mustang. Tilley and Live Fast Racing will also race at Road America, Watkins Glen International, and Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

“To say I’m excited to race in the NASCAR Cup Series would be an understatement,” said Tilley. “I have always been a big fan of NASCAR and the close racing it provides. To have the opportunity to go up against the best at Circuit of the Americas and the other road courses is going to be both a huge challenge and learning curve, but one I am really looking forward to.”

Riding as partners with Tilley in his first NASCAR Cup Series race are Battle Associates and Bremont Chronometers, the official timing partner of Williams Racing in Formula One.

“There are a lot of people to thank,” continued Tilley. “First, I’d like to extend my gratitude to team owners BJ McLeod and Matt Tifft for the faith they have shown in me, and my partners Battle Associates and Bremont Chronometers for coming onboard for the weekend! I am honored to be a part of Team Live Fast and am excited to see what we can do together!”

“Kyle Tilley is a force on the track,” said Vice-President Andrew Woodward of Battle & Associates. “His ability to win in everything from the LMP2 class to FIA Masters Historic Formula 1 prove he can deliver results in challenging and varied environments. These traits require a consistent work ethic and commitment to achieve, and we work hard to incorporate these same traits into the Battle brand every day. We are looking forward to the NASCAR Cup Series this season and can’t wait to see great moments from Kyle on the track. He has demonstrated all of the right attributes to represent our brand, and Battle Associates is honored to be on Team Tilley!”

“Following the success of Kyle and the Era Motorsport team at iconic Le Mans 24 and Daytona 24-hour races, it seemed only natural to follow it up by supporting Kyle in the world-famous NASCAR Series,” said Bremont owners Nick and Giles English. “The high technical performance and precision of NASCAR is reflected in the creation of our mechanical watches. Truly a little piece of Britain in the pinnacle of American motorsport.”

The British-native’s race schedule with Live Fast Motorsports kicks off in Austin, Texas at Circuit of the Americas for NASCAR’s debut at the 3.4-mile track on Sunday, May 23, 2021 at 2:30 p.m. ET live on FS1 and PRN Radio.
