Tommy Baldwin Racing Returning to Cup in Part-Time 2019 Schedule

Tommy Baldwin Racing will return to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series in 2019.

Officials from the organization confirmed it will field an entry in the Cup Series in “five to seven” races in 2019, starting with the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway

“We are looking forward to get back going again with TBR in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series,” team owner Tommy Baldwin said in a team release. “Our goal is to work methodically and build it one piece at a time. I’m excited about these five to seven races for the 2019 season, and where it takes us in the future.”

TBR last competed in the Cup Series in 2017. The organization has over 400 starts in the Cup Series, with a best finish of third, twice, with Dave Blaney (Talladega Superspeedway in 2011) and Regan Smith (Pocono Raceway in 2016).

2018 was the first year that Tommy Baldwin Racing didn’t enter a car in at least one race, a streak that spanned from the team’s inception in 2009.

Team owner Tommy Baldwin Jr. spent 2018 with Premium Motorsports as the competition director and crew chief.

A number and driver for the team has not yet been announced.
