Swan Racing announced Tuesday that it will expand to two teams in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in 2014 with drivers Parker Kligerman and Cole Whitt. The team competed in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in 2013 with several drivers including Michael Waltrip who racing the No. 26 Toyota in the Daytona 500 with a special paint scheme dedicated to the victims of the shootings and Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Ct. David Stremme then drove the No. 30 for the next 25 races. The team then auditioned several drivers including Whitt, Kligerman, and Kevin Swindell.
“When we launched Swan Racing we pledged to race hard every lap of every race,” team owner Brandon Davis in an emailed press release. “That’s what we have done and what we will continue to do. We learned a lot this year and now is the time to plan for the long term future by adding more resources to be more competitive.”
Whitt has 14 starts in the Sprint Cup series since 2011. He also has 51 starts in the Nationwide series and 27 in the Camping World Truck Series; in both series he has 6 top five and 29 top 10 finishes. MORE>>>
