In 2018, Skeen made his Xfinity debut driving the No. 15 Chevrolet Camaro for JD Motorsports.[1] He finished 28th, 6 laps down, after starting 24th.[2][3]

NASCAR Camping World Truck SeriesEdit

In 2013, Skeen debuted in the Truck Series, driving the No. 6 Chevrolet Silverado for Sharp Gallaher Racing. He finished 13th after starting 3rd due to a wreck in the final turn with Max Papis.

Heaphy was fined and suspended indefinitely, while Skeen's crew chief was also fined.[1][4]
