Recently, former NASCAR driver Justin Marks announced that he is entering a new team. Just a few days ago, his newly christened Team Trackhouse recruited Daniel Suarez into their squad.
The team partnered with Richard Childress Racing and leased the 77 charter from Spire Motorsports. Speaking to FOX Sports, Marks revealed that Team Trackhouse has attracted a number of sponsors and partners.
Marks also revealed that he has a ‘significant’ competition budget in 2021 that makes the team playoff contenders right away.
According to him, they want to see that all their partners make an impact on their performance. Marks said, “Right now, today is about announcing the team, our driver, and our alliances.
“Daniel [Suarez] has some great supporters, I’ve got some great supporters. We’ve got conversations with companies that are excited about what we’re doing.”
Justin Marks also said that it is just a matter of figuring out which partner can help in which department. He confessed that he was not comfortable elaborating on their plans, because talks are still ongoing.
He is confident that these plans will help them potentially contend for the Playoffs in 2021. Marks is also confident that the 2022 regulations and economics will work in their favor.
Putting a number to the list of potential sponsors, the 39-year-old revealed that he hopes to recruit at least five major sponsors.
According to Suarez, Marks has been in the NASCAR scene for over 20 years. The Mexican driver knows that he understands the intricacies of NASCAR and respects him for that.
To be precise, Marks understands it from the perspective of a driver and that of a businessman. He said, “I have learned that this sport is about people & I know we are going to work very hard to put together a talented team.”
For the moment, Daniel Suarez will be eager to wrap up his stint with Gaunt Brothers Racing. There are just four races left in the season, not counting the race at the Charlotte Roval. His best finish at the track is the 6th place in 2017 for Joe Gibbs Racing.
