Leavine Family Racing To Run Almost Full Time In 2013

Leavine Family Racing announced that they have reached a contract extension with driver Scott Speed, and that the time will run full time in the Sprint Cup Series in 2013.

Speed has also committed to the team exclusively, meaning he will not drive for other teams.

It’s a big deal to go from a partial schedule to a relatively full-time deal for the 2013 season. It’s the start of a bigger journey. Now is the time I need to give them 100 percent of my time and effort. No longer will I be competing in anything else other then the No. 95.

The team is expected to run 28 of 36 races.

Speed has made eight starts in the Sprint Cup Series this year, six in the No. 95 of LFR and two starts in the No. 79 of Go Green Racing. His best finish this season was a 25th-place finish in the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Infineon Raceway.
