TBR competed with two teams this season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. The team, formed in 2009, also started a NASCAR Nationwide team this season, running a partial schedule. The team campaigns cars for Dave Blaney and David Reutimann in 2012, with a best finish coming when Blaney finished 15th at the Daytona 500.

"The only way we are going to get better is to be able to get our product out there more and have different people working on it," Tommy Baldwin said. "I'm confident that with the group of guys Larry is assembling along with J. J. behind the wheel it will benefit both teams."
