Josh Berry to join Wood Brothers Racing in 2025

NASCAR Cup Series rookie Josh Berry will drive for Wood Brothers Racing starting next season.

The team announced Wednesday that Berry signed a multi-year contract to take over the No. 21 Ford Mustang from Harrison Burton.

Berry, 33, currently pilots the No. 4 Ford for Stewart-Haas Racing, which is shutting down at the end of this season.

Berry has recorded four top-10 finishes in his last seven races, including third-place showings at New Hampshire (June 23) and Darlington (May 12).

“Josh brings a wealth of talent and determination, evident through his success in every level of competition, from grassroots NASCAR to present day,” team president Jon Wood said.

Previous drivers of the Wood Brothers’ No. 21 include Cale Yarborough, Donnie Allison, Buddy Baker, Dale Jarrett and Michael Waltrip.

“When you think of the history and legacy of NASCAR, it’s hard to not think of the Wood Brothers and the incredible impact they’ve made on the sport. It’s an honor and a privilege to be a small part of carrying on that legacy,” said Berry. “To be able to add my name to the list of drivers who have piloted the iconic No. 21 is something I don’t take lightly.”

Berry currently ranks 19th in the Cup Series standings.

He also has five career wins, 52 top-10 finishes and four poles in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
