    Thanks guys! As for the patriotic cars, we'll have to see. I'll say probably for now, at least for some of them. But that won't be for a ways down the road.

    Up next we have our second driver from the newly formed Skylar Greene Motorsports. The #90 Camry will be driven this season by rookie Alexis Marino, 22 year old from Harrisonburg, VA. Not a whole lot is known about Marino, only that she runs pretty competitively in her father's late model. While searching across the country in late 2017, team owner Skylar Greene found the 22 year old racing in the 2017 Winchester 400. They sparked up a conversation while Greene was on pit road, and he became a fan of her almost instantly. He could see the passion she has for racing and the talent she has behind the wheel. She ended up finishing 4th in that race, which was incredibly respectable for the relatively unknown Virginia short tracker. After the race ended, Greene tapped Marino to run for the ROTY and the title in 2018 Cup competition in one of the more surprising moves we've seen. Although Greene has been known to surprise a lot of people during his life, so this is no different. With a team owner that has the utmost faith in his rookie driver to do well, Marino is looking to prove that she is up to the challenge and compete at the highest level. We'll have to see when 2018 begins! She's got full sponsorship thanks to her well known owner, and she's got great equipment, so she's looking forward to getting behind the wheel come speedweeks.

    Covering the majority of the events in 2018, Xylem Water Solutions will be on board for 27 of the 36 races this year, and will possibly advertise some of their numerous brands as well throughout the year. We'll have to see!

    Covering 3 races this season will be the largest dry bulk carrier in the United States, Bulkmatic Transport. They have been seen on the #25 car in Xfinity, but are making the jump to Cup for a few races to see how it goes at the highest level. They are very excited to start this partnership and look forward to potentially expanding it in the future.

    Also covering 3 races for the #90 car this year will be online cloud service Rackspace. They will also serve as a full time associate and are excited to make the jump into motorsports sponsorship.

    Lastly for the 22 year old Virginia native, she will be sponsored by the Virginia Lottery in 3 races this season. They will cover both Martinsville races as well as one of the events at Richmond.

    Thanks for looking!

    Our next driver is the second driver for Charlotte based Great American Racing. Louis Acton is a 25 year old from Bakersfield, CA, and he drives the #77 Ford. In the past two seasons Acton has put together a very impressive resume. Between 2016 and 2017, he's racked up 2 poles, 5 wins, 22 top 5s, and 38 top 10s. He finished 3rd and 5th in the standings in each respective year, and has really turned a lot of heads for his consistency. Being the highest finishing Ford driver in the Championship hunt, he heads into 2018 looking for even more. Acton is destined for great things in the sport, and with 5 wins already under his belt, the sky is the limit. Many expect him to be a multiple time Champion by the time his career has finished, but heading into his third full time campaign, momentum and determination will prove that the driver of the #77 continues to have what it takes to win.

    Acton will run the familiar Coors Light colors in 22 races this season. They are fully behind their driver and hope this scheme continues to bring him good fortune heading into 2018.

    On the car for 6 races this season, including the throwback race at Darlington, will be Coors Banquet. With these additional races, it will bring their sponsorship total up to 28 total races for the #77 car.

    Also returning for 2018 will be New England based transport company NEMF. They will provide primary sponsorship for 6 races this season, also returning with the familiar colors and scheme.

    Lastly, Anker Mobile Technology will also return to the #77 this season. Though they have backed their sponsorship down to just 2 races, as they cover the whole season for the #77 car in Xfinity. They are still excited for the opportunity to be on the Cup car for a limited time in 2018.

    Thanks for looking! Stay tuned for more, but that is the last scheduled driver that doesn't drive a Toyota or a Ford, so for the time being this is being put on a slight hold. But I appreciate everyone who has viewed, commented, and supported this thus far! It's been fun continuing this series into a third season.

    Thanks guys!

    A late addition to the roster, but still in plenty of time to get ready for the season! 26 year old Ross Mitchell, an Albany, NY native, will make his Cup debut this season. His sponsor, Angry Orchard Hard Cider will sponsor him in the 12 events he has slated for this season. Mitchell had a solid rookie campaign in the truck series, scoring a pole, one win, and 10 top 10s. He's looking forward to some strong runs this season, and plans to attempt the Daytona 500 as well. But with over 45 entries slated for the Great American Race already, he's really gonna have to prove himself to make the show.

    Angry Orchard will advertise their new Knotty Pear variant this season in 12 races.

    As if the competition to make the Great American Race wasn't already tough as nails, this week we have 3 brand new teams that have formed up to try and make the Daytona 500.

    First up, we have 22 year old Spencer Durand, from Stillwater, OK. His lifelong dream has been to race in Nascar, and he will get the opportunity this season to try and race his way in to the biggest event of the season. His father, Nathan Durand, is a high up executive at Home Depot. He's worked his whole life to get where he is, and now he gets to try and help his oldest son achieve his dream. After pulling some strings with some partners of his, and the company's, they were able to work out a deal. Technically, Durand Motorsports is being funded about 75% out of pocket, with his business partners buying things such as tires, renting out the hauler and even working out a deal with Revved Up Racing to use some of their development crew members. The 22 year rookie is hoping to make it to both Daytona races this year, but that's all they have worked out at the moment. They are working on getting the car prepped for Speedweeks, and Spencer is on his way to Charlotte to pick up his Nascar license. No one really knows how competitive this car will be, rumor has it they purchased an old Revved Up car and leased a TRD engine, so there's a chance this car could turn some heads come the duels. We'll just have to wait and see! Spencer Durand will pilot the #75 Lithonia Lighting/Acuity Brands Toyota Camry in potentially 2 races this season.

    Next up we have a team that has formed out of some of the team members and engineers that worked on both Tornado Motorsports and Long Haul Racing in previous years. Due to varying reasons, these employees lost their positions with their respective teams, but former Tornado crew chief Dustin Mansfield got a group of talented guys together to try and make the Daytona 500. Kingsport Auto, based out of Kingsport, TN will run a Ford in their 500 attempt. They have tapped 25 year old Zacchary Silverton to drive the #38 machine. Silverton has known team owner Dustin Mansfield for almost his whole life, being neighbors, they shared similar interests and became good friends. Silverton has been running legends and late models throughout the south for a few years, primarily in Tennessee. For a while, Mansfield was the lead crew chief during his short track tenure. A few years ago though Mansfield was tapped to be the crew chief for the #15 Winn Dixie car in the upcoming 2016 season. Unfortunately the #15 closed at the end of 2017 and Mansfield was left out of a position. That's when he decided to try and keep his Nascar career alive. He purchased a few of the old 15 cars and has been working tirelessly to get them ready with his small crew. Those cars were pretty good on the superspeedways, so it will definitely be interesting to see how this team fares. At the end of last week, Mansfield was also able to land a sponsor for the race. Denver based company Antero Resources agreed to be the primary for the 500, and potentially more races IF it goes well, but as of now, the team's focus is making the 500, making their sponsors happy, and proving they still have what it takes to compete at the highest level. This is a scrappy group of guys, only 11 crew members are included on the team, but they have experience and know how stiff the competition can be. They are ready and up for the challenge, and I think it will be interesting to see what they can do. Zacchary Silverton will drive the #38 Antero Resources Ford this season in his attempt to make the Daytona 500.

    Last, but certainly not least, we have a team that has more than just the 500 in mind. Lesterman Racing, owned by Phoenix based businessman Steve Lesterman has 4 races planned for this season. Obviously, the Daytona 500 is one of them, but they also are going to attempt the second Daytona race, as well as both Phoenix races. Behind the wheel will be a guy with a little bit of Daytona experience. He's raced in a few Arca events here, including 2 top 5 finishes, for an arguably underfunded team. 33 year old Bryan Tyler, from Phoenix, AZ has never gotten his big chance in racing. He's had some opportunities, and has always had solid results, including a couple truck starts back in 2009, scoring a top 10 and 3 top 20s in his 5 starts. But unfortunately, that was all he's been able to reach. Without a devoted sponsor, he's struggled to stay in motorsports. He's done a bunch of different things though, including 24 Arca starts in the past 4 years, a stint in Rallycross, and even making a few starts in the now WeatherTech Sportscar series back in 2015. He finished top 10 in each of those starts, but as usual, wasn't able to secure enough funding for himself to stay in the seat too long. Team owner Lesterman, has been following motorsports for a long time, and he sees the heart that Tyler has. He knows he can achieve great things if he just gets the opportunity. This, this is his opportunity, his big break you could say. It may only be 4 races, but it's on the grand stage, the Cup series. He's got a solid team behind him, and a solid engine under the hood. He hopes he can finally prove himself to potentially make a run for a full time ride. It's all speculation at this point though, but Daytona is right around the corner. The team is excited, Bryan Tyler is ready, and the car is sleek. If the pieces fall the right way, and Tyler can make the 500, big things may be waiting for the Arizona native, but we'll have to see. Bryan Tyler will drive the #00 Sullivan Palatek Toyota Camry.

    Thanks for looking! Testing begins soon!
