More from Xfinity Series

The 23-year-old Eagle River, Wisconsin native is set to move up from the Truck Series to the Xfinity Series after spending two seasons as a part-time driver in the former.

After competing for DGR-Crosley for 19 races in the 2019 season and 13 races for Niece Motorsports in the 2020, she is set to move to RSS Racing with Reaume Brothers Racing for her first venture into NASCAR’s second highest level of competition. She is slated to drive the #23 Ford.

She announced that her schedule for the season currently consists of just five of the 33 races on the schedule, but that the hope is to add races to her schedule as the season progresses.

RSS Racing are set to compete full-time in the series with Ryan Sieg behind the wheel of the #39 Ford. The only other confirmed driver for the #23 Ford is Jason White, who is set to compete in the season opener at Daytona International Speedway next Saturday, February 13.

The five tracks currently on Decker’s schedule for the 2021 season are the Daytona International Speedway road course (Saturday, February 20), Talladega Superspeedway (Saturday, April 24), Nashville Superspeedway (Saturday, June 12), Road America (Saturday, July 3) and Martinsville Speedway (Saturday, October 30).
