CHINA GROVE, N.C. — Turn One Racing plans to enter the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series on a limited basis.

Veterans of the past three NASCAR Camping World Truck Series campaigns, the team owned by Stacy Compton will make its debut in the Subway Frest Fit 500 at Phoenix Int’l Raceway March 4 with hopes to compete in eight to 10 races this season.

The operation, which fielded Trucks for Cole Whitt last season, has purchased Sprint Cup cars from Richard Childress Racing.

“This is a great opportunity for Turn One Racing,” said Team Owner, Stacy Compton. “It has always been our objective to grow the team and this is just the next step in that plan. We have a great group of partners behind us and feel like we are taking all the right steps to build a very competitive Sprint Cup team.”

If sponsorship develops the team’s Cup schedule could be expanded.

“We have partnered with one of our long-time supporters to run a handful of races this year,” said Compton. “We’re also working on additional sponsorship that would enable us to run more races throughout the year.”

The team is also in the process of putting together a full season program for the No. 60 truck. The driver, crew chief, and sponsor lineup for both teams will be announced at a later date.
