Afetr one season and one race in the ARCA Re/Max Series driver Justin Loftin said on the ARCA Radio programthat he plans to run the last five races of the Nascar Nationwide Series season in Eddie Sharp Racing equipment (the team he drives for in the ARCA Series).

He wants to run Nationwide full time next year. This news comes after Lofton sit on the pole and finished third in the ARCA opener at Daytona. Lofton will come into the Nationwide Series that features the likes of Carl Edwards, Kyle Busch, Clint Bowyer, Brad Kelslowski, with more and more Sprint Cup drivers racing in the Series its always hard for regulars to get wins and finish good.

Eddie Sharpe Racing should have lots of help in the transiston after already helping develop Micheal McDowell and Scott Speed in to the Cup Series.
