We have a new team coming to NASCAR. In some news out of left field, Spire Sports + Entertainment, an agency that has drivers and sponsors as clients, will field a team for the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season.
How big is this?
The new team purchased Furniture Row Racing’s charter to field the No. 77 Chevrolet next year. The only things missing now are the sponsor and the driver.
The owners are Jeff Dickerson and T.J. Puchyr.
In a report from Sports Business Daily, Spire Sports + Entertainment was founded in 2010 and some of the drivers they represent are Kyle Larson, James Hinchcliffe, Landon Cassill, Ross Chastain, Todd Gilliland, Justin Haley, Vinnie Miller and Garrett Smithley. On the team side, they’re linked with Hendrick Motorsports, Chip Ganassi Racing, GMS Racing and Toyota Racing Development.
