NASCAR Race Mom just heard that Leavine Family Racing has purchased Tommy Baldwin Racing’s ownership charter in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Not known how much it cost to be guaranteed participation in every race.

Below is the scoop directly from the Tommy Baldwin Racing Facebook page.

It is with mixed emotions that I write this today, but I want to address all of you personally.

The season finale at Homestead will be the last race for Tommy Baldwin Racing full-time. We felt that it’s time for a new chapter in our lives and we have sold our charter to a great group of people who will continue to guide our vision.

For the past eight years we’ve shown up at every race, worked hard to compete at the top level and bring value to our sponsors. I feel confident that we are moving on having accomplished that. There have been many teams like ours that have come and gone. I’m proud that we have been able to sustain ourselves from the very beginning.

Over the years we have been fortunate enough to have a great group of people both in the shop and on the road. In this business, you are really defined by the people you employ and I’m grateful for everyone’s hard work.

Getting sponsors these days is a tough task. Keeping them is even tougher. But we have had so many great supporters of our program. Whether they were a primary, associate or just a one-race sponsor, they were all great to work with and I thank them for believing in us.

We’ve had some really great drivers in our cars over the years. Each of them drove hard every lap – no matter how the car was handling. They always gave 110% and that’s all you can really ask from a driver. We’re proud of the names that were on the roof of our Chevrolets.

If you’re reading this, you already know that NASCAR is the greatest sport in the world. I have been blessed to have a career in motorsports because of how NASCAR has grown over the years.

Teams don’t always agree with their stance on rule changes or penalties or just the way things are done. But I can tell you that they have gone out of their way to help our team. They’ve brought us opportunities and have always made themselves available to meet with prospective sponsors if we needed them to. It’s been a privilege for me to say that I’m a NASCAR team owner.

Finally, there are you guys.

We can’t begin to tell you how much your support of our team has meant to us. You’re not just fans -- you’re friends and family to us.

When we have good days, you cheer us on. When we’ve had rough days, you give us encouragement. You have supported our drivers and our sponsors with so much enthusiasm. I promise you that it never went unnoticed.

So what’s next?

Well, we’re not 100% sure. We are going to work hard to get the best possible results in Miami, take a little family time and then figure out the rest. So, stay tuned – announcements will be forthcoming.

Thanks again for everything,
