Racing careerEdit

He is the younger brother of fellow driver Ronnie Bassett Jr. The two drove for family-operated Bassett Racing in the K&N series, owned by their father Ronnie Sr.[1] Moving up to the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2019, Bassett made headlines when he ran into a sweeper truck at Iowa Speedway in July, relegating him to a 26th-place finish.[2] In his next race at Richmond Raceway, Bassett came to finish 13th, a career-best in the Xfinity Series.[3]
