Joey Gase to form Xfinity Series team for 2022

Joey Gase Racing announced this week that they plan to field a new team in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for the 2022 season.

Gase, 28, has been a fixture in the Xfinity and Cup Series dating back to 2011 when he made his debut at Iowa.

β€œI am extremely excited to start a new chapter in my career and life,” said Gase. β€œTo 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.”

According to a team press release, Gase plans to drive the bulk of the races in the No. 35 while also appearing as a part-time driver in the Cup Series. The team has five cars and is currently looking for drivers of the car for the weekends Gase will not be behind the wheel.
