Trackhouse Racing owner Justin Marks said that the organization is fully committed to Chevrolet.
Speaking on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio he said that “we’re not interested” in joining Toyota. Marks’ comments come after the rumors that the organization might be switching to Toyota.
“Our relationship with Chevrolet is so important to us,” Marks said. “We’ve tethered ourselves to the trajectory, to the commitment, to the passion that they’ve got for this sport.
“They’ve obviously made a huge investment with their tech and innovation center in Concord, North Carolina, supporting their key partner teams. We’re one of three teams that are the key partners, right alongside (Richard Childress Racing) and Hendrick (Motorsports), which is an incredibly valuable relationship for us. … I think more Toyotas on the racetrack would be good for David and good for his group over there, it just won’t be with Trackhouse.
David Wilson, president of Toyota Racing Development, recently said that Toyota is looking to expand its Cup lineup in 2024. However, he will have to look elsewhere as Trackhouse Racing seem adamant about their choice.
Trackhouse Racing will be entering its third season in the Cup Series. They currently field two full-time Chevrolet cars: the No. 1 for Ross Chastain and the No. 99 for Daniel Suárez. They also field No. 91 on a part-time basis.
2022 turned out to be a successful year for the recently founded organization as Chastain won two races, featured in the Championship 4 race and finished second.
