Joey Gase Launching Xfinity Series Team

MOORESVILLE, N.C. – NASCAR driver Joey Gase has formed his own NASCAR Xfinity Series team called Joey Gase Racing that will debut next season.

“I am extremely excited to start a new chapter in my career and life,” said Gase. “To not only be a driver, but also a team owner, this is something I have been thinking about a lot the last few years. When I asked other team owners and mentors I expected to get a lot of push back saying not to, but to my surprise I got a lot of the opposite. I have learned a lot the past 10 years and have worked with a lot of great people from Jimmy Means, Bobby Dotter, Carl Long, Archie St. Hilaire and Rick Ware. They have all taught me a ton and have helped me every step of the way. It is not going to be easy by any means but I have a big support team behind me with my family and friends.”

Gase began his career in the NASCAR Xfinity Series at the age of 18 in 2011. During his career he has made 249 NASCAR Xfinity Series starts, earning one top-five and three top-10 finishes. He’s also made 90 NASCAR Cup Series starts. 

“In 2021, we made two starts in the NASCAR Xfinity Series with a car that I owned myself,” said Gase. “Our second start was the fall Talladega race where we finished 15th and ran in the top 10 the majority of the third stage. I am extremely proud of how we ran that day and have to give a big shout out to Rick Bourgeois for putting the car together and setting it up. We also want to thank Jimmy Means and Tim Brown for making it possible and getting the car to/from the track and taking care of the car at the track. Also a huge thanks to Sparks Energy for sponsoring us that weekend.”

The team currently has five cars and bought the remaining cars and equipment of H2 Motorsports from Shane Lee. The plan is for the team to run full-time with Rick Bourgeois serving as the General Manager. Gase will drive the No. 35 car most of the season and plans to continue driving part time in the NASCAR Cup Series as well.

The team’s sponsors will be announced at a later date.
