Swan Racing is set to debut next Sprint Cup Series season with David Stremme behind the wheel. Brandon Davis, CEO of Swan Energy Inc., an independent oil and gas company, purchased the assets of Inception Racing and renamed the team Swan Racing. Davis is also a dirt-modified driver in the United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS). He said:
Swan Racing is here to race competitively every week the days of starting and parking are over. I am confident that we are putting together the personnel to one day produce a championship contender.
Davis has hired Steve Hmiel to be Swan Racing’s director of competition. Hmiel brings a wealth of experience with him to Swan Racing, serving as crew chief for drivers such as Terry Labonte, Mark Martin, and Dale Earnhardt Jr, among others. Hmiel served in a similar role with Earnhardt Ganassi Racing.
