Lane Moore, who recently backed Veer Motorsports in the ARCA Menards Series, is now shifting gears to the Craftsman Truck Series with Faction46. Chatting with Eric Estepp on the Out of the Groove YouTube show, Moore shared his drive for diving into team ownership. When probed about what prompted him to have a team in NASCAR and not any other motorsport, he said, “I love racing, I have loved racing all my life. Whether it’s racing myself or helping others get to the track it’s been something that has been a passion of mine. The idea of starting a team has been on the back of my mind for a long time. So, this year, parts and pieces just kind of fell together and now we are here.”

Moore also spilled the beans on the origin of the name ‘Faction46’. “Faction, you know, it’s just a cool word. Every team should have a cool word, right? The “46”, it has got a couple of different meanings. The first is that it represents the 46 states of the union in Oklahoma which is where I raised my family, we have had our businesses there. So, it seemed fitting to have it in Oklahoma represented in the name. Besides, the second meaning is a little touchier, we’ll have to talk about that in a different show.” He didn’t forget to tip his hat to Niece Motorsports, admitting that building the trucks would’ve been a pipe dream without their help.

 

Well, for fans on the hunt for a new team to cheer on, Faction46 might just be the ticket. They’re even throwing in some cool merchandise for fans who register on their website – worth checking out!

Here’s to hoping they will put someone behind the wheel who has the chops – a driver who is more about skill and less about causing a ruckus on the track, a refreshing change from the usual crash-and-bash strategy we see in the Truck Series.

Controversies, gossip, and breakneck speeds? Count me in! While F1 has its charm, NASCAR helps me relive those "Roadrash" gaming days. My favorite among the drivers has to be Tyler Reddick. The 23XI Racing pilot is not only likable but also a complete beast when he is on track, more specifically, road courses.
