Front Row Motorsports announced Friday morning that it will expand to three full-time cars for the 2015 season. Sophomore driver Cole Whitt will join David Gilliland and David Ragan to pilot the No. 35 Ford. Additionally, Whitt’s crew chief through his rookie season, Randy Cox, joins the organization to maintain his partnership with the young driver.
“I’m really excited and grateful for the opportunity to go racing with Front Row Motorsports and continue my relationship with Speed Stick®,” Whitt said in a team release Friday morning. “Bob Jenkins is a smart businessman and has grown his team the right way over the years, and I’m really looking forward to being a part of that growth. The 2014 season was great for me as a driver. We had some important personal victories and some areas where we’ll want to improve.”
Speed Stick, “known for its line of high-performing antiperspirants and deodorants,” will back Whitt for 10 races.
“This is an exciting time for Front Row Motorsports,” said team owner Bob Jenkins. “Adding Cole Whitt to our program, along with the support of the Speed Stick® team, is another big step in our growth as a young team. We’re going to have a diverse mix of experience with our drivers, which, I think, is going to be a big benefit for everyone.”
In his rookie season, Whitt split his time between Swan Racing and BK Racing and posted a career best finish of 15th at Talladega Superspeedway in October.
