Two years ago Mason Maggio was an ordinary kid, with dreams and ambitions of taking his talents to higher places. In just a short time, he has managed to do just that, and then some. From frequenting race weekends at local tracks around his native Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, to racing late models for Rick Ware Racing, Mason has steadily managed to keep climbing up the ladder of the racing world, slowly, but surely.
With the announcement last June of Mason’s NASCAR debut in the Camping World Truck Series for Reaume Brothers Racing, it seemed like he had really peaked, but with today’s announcement, Mason has proven that he has much more to show us all.
Today it was announced that 18-year-old Mason Maggio would be making his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Maggio will compete for MBM Motorsports, driving the #66 Ford Mustang, with the long-time sponsor of Maggio’s, HMY Yachts, coming on board to sponsor. This start in the Xfinity series marks Mason’s sixth start in NASCAR, after competing in multiple NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts.
Maggio had this to say about the announcement, “I’m super excited to the next step in my racing career and for MBM Motorsports giving me this opportunity to compete in the Xfinity Series. I’m looking forward to getting behind the wheel of the #66 in ‘Sin City’ next weekend!”
From being a local kid with big dreams to climbing through the ranks to make his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut, Mason Maggio has really only continued to climb his way up the racing ladder. As of now, this is Maggio’s only planned Xfinity Series start. However, this won’t be the last of Mason we see in 2023.
When asked about his future plans for the season Mason said, “I do have Truck Series plans in place with a couple of different teams!”
So as for the rest of 2023, it seems like we may be seeing Mason’s face around a lot more often, but only time will tell. Although we still have to wait another week before we see Mason race in the Xfinity Series, he is poised to have a strong performance and the entire Pit Box Press team wishes him nothing but luck.
