Tommy Baldwin Racing announced that it will field a Sprint Cup Series team that will compete full time in 2009. The team is currently preparing Toyotas for the upcoming Daytona 500.
The team has not announced a sponsor, car number, or driver for the team.
Team owner Tommy Baldwin said:
With tough economic times upon us, the timing for starting this team is right. Our overhead is low and we have a great group of talented mechanics and specialists to choose from. We can offer sponsors the chance to get into Sprint Cup racing at a fraction of the costs, without compromising on-track performance, due to our low overhead.
Baldwin owned a Nationwide series team, which he sold to Gillett Evernham Motorsports.
