JTG Daugherty Racing Co-Owner Tad Geschickter joined SiriusXM NASCAR radio and clears up the news of the team going to a one car team in 2022. Tad explains why the decision was made and that they are committed to helping Ryan Preece find the best opportunity to continue to develop. Tad Geshickter will continue to try and sell some sponsorship for Ryan Preece even if it’s not in a JTG Daugherty car or in the Xfinty and Truck ranks. (Side Note: Ryan Preece won earlier this season at Nashville Super Speedway in the #17 Truck for DGR)
Ryan Preece also joined SiriuisXM NASCAR Radio on Wed night 9/1/21 to discuss his future in NASCAR.
JTG Daugherty Racing announces they will go back to being a single car team in 2022. Throughout 2021 the No. 37 of Ryan Preece has competed as a open team as the Charter they had was owned by Todd Braun. Todd Braun took that Charter to Spire Motorsports for the 2021 season.
Team co-owner Brad Daugherty said in an NBC Zoom call Aug. 31 “We’re not going to pursue another charter,” Daugherty said. “When we started out, I had a good buddy who told me about 10 years ago … ‘If you have one bad race team, why have two? It just makes it even more difficult.’”
“We want to be a really strong one-car race company, and that’s what we’re going back to next season,” Daugherty added.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr., who drives the team’s No. 47, is believed to be signed with JTG through the end of the year; the team has not yet made an announcement on its driver lineup for 2022.
