CREWMEN AND INDUSTRY RELATED COMPANIES RALLY BEHIND TOMMY BALDWIN RACING
MOORESVILLE, N.C. (Jan. 27, 2009) - On any given morning in Mooresville, N.C., Tommy Baldwin pulls up to his new race shop to find another unemployed crew member awaiting his arrival and willing to volunteer his services, if only for a day. In a sport marred by mergers, crumbling racing empires, and an ever slumping economy, many find themselves rallying behind a man with the courage to start over with a brand new team.
Baldwin, a 12 year NASCAR veteran, and former Daytona 500 winning crew chief, announced earlier this month the formation of his Sprint Cup Series race team under the existing Tommy Baldwin Racing banner. Taking advantage of low overhead, and an influx of restless, out-of-work, mechanical talent, Baldwin rolls up his sleeves and works diligently with his crew to prepare for their Sprint Cup debut in Daytona next month.
"It's great to know that I have so many people to support me in this venture," Baldwin said. "It's overwhelming the amount of people that are behind everything I'm trying to do and accomplish as a team owner, I don't know how successful I would be without all the support."
In addition to the manpower at the shop, Baldwin is also receiving an outpouring of support from industry related organizations. The following companies have pledged their support of Tommy Baldwin Racing for the 2009 NASCAR Season: Bowman, Cheerwine, Diversified Finishes, Heintz Bros Automotive, Inc., Impact Racing, Lincoln Welders, Mechanix Wear, Moog, Pro- System, Inc., Racing Electronics, Rock Batteries, Safety-Kleen, Sherman Williams, Stratosphere Casino Hotel & Tower, The Decal Source, TMC Trucking and Wix Filters.
Primary sponsorship backing for the No. 36 team has yet to be determined.
