Longtime Nationwide Series Owner Forms Cup Team

Long-time Nationwide Series team owner Jay Robinson has teamed up with Troy Blakeney to form Robinson-Blakeney Racing, which will field a Sprint Cup entry in 2012. Robinson owns Jay Robinson Racing, which fielded the No. 28 entry in the Nationwide Series last season with Derrike Cope and Dennis Setzer behind the wheel. The team also fielded the Nos. 48 and 49 in the series with a variety of drivers. The team also formed partnerships with several other N’Wide teams throughout the season, including R3 Motorsports.

Robinson said:

I am very excited about our new venture into the Cup series”, said team owner Jay Robinson” We have all of the cars and equipment in place. We will be running engines prepared by Race Engines Plus and are hoping to hire a driver very soon.

The team still plans to field the No. 28 N’wide car. Jeff Spraker and his Spraker Racing Enterprises group has been hired to head up that effort.

No word on sponsorship, driver, or crew chief.
