In addition, Heim will be the simulator driver for Legacy and handle many of the team’s simulator testing and setup duties alongside his reserve driver role.
Heim broke the news across his social media channels Thursday morning.
“[I] can’t wait to learn from and work with all the great minds at both of these teams,” Heim wrote on X (formerly Twitter) of the announcement.
Heim has been a regular in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series over the past two year, earning five wins, 18 top-five and 29 top-10 finishes. The 21-year-old will chase a Truck Series championship again this season with TRICON Garage, as well as run a part-time NASCAR Xfinity Series slate with Sam Hunt Racing.
A native of Marietta, Ga., Heim has not yet made a start in the Cup Series.
Heim’s reserve and simulator driver commitments will be in addition to his already-announced racing schedule for this season.
His first Truck Series race will be the season-opening Fresh From Florida 250 at Daytona (Fla.) Int’l Speedway on Feb. 16, with live coverage on FS1, the Motor Racing Network, and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, channel 90.
I'm grateful to announce that I've been signed by @LEGACYMotorClub as their simulator & reserve driver for this season and will also be the reserve driver for @23XIRacing . Can’t wait to learn from and work with all the great minds at both of these teams! #TeamToyota pic.twitter.com/KiGsAAUmTk
