You could dub it the all-star team line-up if you wanted, but it’s certainly full of talent one way or another, as Richard Childress Racing announced the five drivers that will split time behind the wheel of the No. 3 Chevrolet Camaro SS in the NASCAR XFINITY Series this season.

“Our goal with the multi-driver Chevrolet Camaro SS is to win races and put ourselves in a position to be in the NASCAR Playoffs at the end if the season to compete for the owner’s championship,” said Richard Childress, Chairman and CEO of RCR.

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series competitors Austin and Ty Dillon will each run their fare of share of events, hoping to build on their winning history in the series. Older brother Austin won the series championship in 2013, and has scored eight wins and 99 top-10 finishes to date, while younger brother Ty has 86 top-10’s, highlighted by a victory at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 2014.

ARCA Racing Series regular Shane Lee will make his series debut as part of his time in the seat this year. Running the full ARCA schedule for the first time last year, he placed third in the year-end standings.

Jeb Burton and Brendan Gaughan will round out the line-up. Burton has 19 top-10 XFINITY top-10 finishes on his resume, while Gaughan enters his seventh year in association with RCR. While he won’t run the full schedule this year, he is set to run Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on August 11th and Elkhart Lake’s Road America on August 25th, building upon the success he has had at both venues, including a victory at Road America.
