Chase Briscoe Moving to Cup in 2021 for Stewart-Haas Racing

Chase Briscoe is going NASCAR Cup Series racing full time in 2021 for Stewart-Haas Racing, a source with knowledge of the situation tells Frontstretch.

For weeks, Briscoe has been tied to the No. 14 car, beginning as early as the 2021 season. When Clint Bowyer announced his retirement on Oct. 8, the Indiana native’s future became more clear.

Entering the 2020 Xfinity Series season, Briscoe said he believed he needed eight wins to continue his NASCAR career, hoping to move to the Cup Series. Through 30 Xfinity races thus far this season, he’s visited victory lane a series-high nine times.

After clinching his spot into the Championship 4 last weekend via a win at Kansas Speedway, Briscoe said of his future, “I think winning the race is certainly going to help that situation. We will go into next week and anytime you can bring a trophy back it helps the cause. If I can keep doing this the remainder of the playoffs, not that it will make their decision easier or harder, but I am only helping my situation anytime I go win a race.”

By moving to Cup in 2021, Briscoe will get one year of experience racing on Sundays in a car that will be obsolete come next November. In 2022, the series will move to the Next-Gen car.

Stewart-Haas Racing could have a formal announcement of Briscoe’s move by the end of the week.

  1. I would love to see Briscoe eventually become more successful than Kyle Larson. Certainly, driving an SHR Ford will give him an advantage over Larson in an HMS Chevy, at least until NASCAR goes with its all new car.
