Murphy’s Towing and Diesel was recently in the spotlight for rescuing the No. 98 NASCAR Xfinity Series hauler after an incident in Arizona two weeks ago.

The story of McGee is nothing short of unique, and part of his story will ride with him at Phoenix.

“Every opportunity that I get to drive is truly a blessing that I have dreamt about my entire life and having Murphy’s Towing and Diesel come on board for the Phoenix race is an answer to a lot of my prayers,” he said. It’s an honor to have a company that loves this country as much as I do show me this kind of support. It’s easy to see why Murphy’s Towing and Diesel is the premier towing company in Arizona and the surrounding states, from recovering the wrecked Stewart-Haas Racing hauler two weeks ago to now entering into the sport of NASCAR, they have us covered.”

The patriotic paint scheme that will be running on #33 Chevrolet Silverado RST will pay tribute to all veterans and first responders, McGee said.

“I couldn’t’t be any prouder to race this truck as we honor all that have served,” he said.

Josh Reaume, owner of Reaume Brothers Racing, has seen McGee face adversity on and off the track, and is optimistic about McGee’s ability on short tracks.

“Keith’s story is nothing short of unique, and it is an honor to have him in our shop day in and day out,” he said. “His dedication to being a part of our team and the sport we all love drives him to new challenges, and I think Phoenix will show the ability in Keith that I’ve seen since the beginning. I’m looking forward to having Keith back behind the wheel of one of our trucks.”

McGee will be in the No. 33 Murphy’s Diesel and Towing Chevrolet Silverado RST during the Lucas Oil 150 at Phoenix Raceway Nov. 4 at 10 p.m. (EST) on FOX Sports 1.
