Turn One Racing to Make NASCAR Sprint Cup Debut at Phoenix

urn One Racing announced today that they will field a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series car in 2012, starting with the Subway Fresh Fit 500 at Phoenix International Raceway on Sunday, March 4th.  The team is building on the experience earned over the last three years of competition in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, where the team earned a ninth place finish in the 2011 standings with driver Cole Whitt.

“This is a great opportunity for Turn One Racing,” said Team Owner, Stacy Compton.  “It has always been our objective to grow the team and this is just the next step in that plan.  We have a great group of partners behind us and feel like we are taking all the right steps to build a very competitive Sprint Cup team.”

Compton’s team has purchased cars from Richard Childress Racing and plans are in the works to race eight to ten events in their freshman year.  The team will attempt the remaining races, excluding the 200-lap Daytona 500.   “We have partnered with one of our long-time supporters to run a handful of races this year.  We’re also working on additional sponsorship that would enable us to run more races throughout the year.”

The team is also in the process of putting together a full season program for the No. 60 truck.  The driver, crew chief, and sponsor lineup for both teams will be announced at a later date.
