NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Trackhouse Racing has signed Ross Chastain as its second Cup Series driver in a multiyear deal announced Tuesday.
The 28-year-old Chastain currently drives the No. 42 Chevrolet for Chip Ganassi Racing. Trackhouse purchased the Ganassi operation in late June in a deal that takes effect at the end of this season and includes both of Ganassi's Cup Series charters.
"It was a great choice for our company," Trackhouse Racing founder Justin Marks said on a Zoom call. "We've got somebody that can be a part of this company for a long time. I'm excited to offer Ross what I think is probably his first multi-year contract in his NASCAR career, and it's a way for us to show that we're committed to him. We're building this team around him, and I'm excited for the future."
