Speed To Run 16 Cup Races For Leavine Family Racing

[1]Scott Speed will drive 16 Sprint Cup┬áraces for Leavine Family Racing in 2012 [2], starting with the April race at Texas Motor Speedway. Team owner Bob Leavine was impressed with Speed’s ability to qualify for races, which led to his hiring.

The team plans to run the full races it enters, instead of starting and parking.

Speed said:

You can make more money doing (start-and-parks), for sure, but that’s not what Bob wants to do. We want to be professional about it. We’re going to look good, we’re going to have all of our stuff right and represent our brand and what we’re doing the right way and not just be another start-and-park team.

The team will field cars and engines purchased from Roush Fenway Racing. They do not plan to buy a superspeedway car, but they will buy a road course car because they feel they have a better chance at doing well in races that are more within their control.
