#36 Team News and Rumors
(NOTE: some older links may not work)

  • Zing Zang to return to Tommy Baldwin Racing: Zing Zang Bloody Mary Mix, who sponsored Tommy Baldwin Racing's #36 and driver Reed Sorenson for four races in 2014, announced on Twitter that: "Hey NASCAR fans! Green Flag! It's go time! We just signed with Tommy Baldwin Racing to support Reed Sorenson for the Sprint Cup season - starting with the Martinsville Speedway Race on March 29!" Doesn't say how many races.(1-18-2015)

  • Bray Pemberton joins Tommy Baldwin Racing as General Manager and Chief Legal Counsel: Tommy Baldwin Racing announced the team has hired Bray Pemberton as General Manager and Chief Legal Counsel for the two car NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Team. Bray, 29, is a 2012 graduate from The University of South Carolina School of Law and became licensed in North Carolina to practice law in July 2012. Prior to joining TBR, Pemberton, whose family has a long history in the sport of NASCAR, was general manager at Swan Racing and spent a short time with Randy Humphrey Racing. "While I am grateful for all of the opportunities I have had with race teams in NASCAR, I can honestly say I've never been so excited about the possibilities I now have working along-side Tommy Baldwin," said Pemberton. "I have the utmost respect for what Tommy and Beth (Baldwin's wife) have done over the past few years in building this team, basically on their own. I see so many great opportunities to help continue to grow their dream and see TBR compete with the top teams in NASCAR," he added.(TBR)(1-9-2015)

  • Baldwin may not run #36 full-time: Tommy Baldwin Racing may not field its familiar #36 Sprint Cup Chevrolet on a full-time basis in 2015, focusing instead on the team's #7 Chevy while forging a new partnership with Jay Robinson Racing to keep the #36 entry on track. Multiple sources tell GodfatherMotorsports.com that negotiations are underway to campaign the #36 under the Jay Robinson Racing banner in 2015, with TBR handling fabrication and preparation for the four restrictor plate races at Daytona International Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway. That move, if finalized, will result in the layoff of approximately eight TBR employees, all of whom have been invited to apply for positions at JRR's facility on Rolling Hill Road in Mooresville, NC. Baldwin reportedly informed team personnel of the move Monday, saying the deal will be finalized later this week. Baldwin stressed today that he has no plans to sell TBR, and is speaking with a number of parties in an effort to improve the performance of the #36 team. Baldwin has made a total of 321 career Sprint Cup Series starts since becoming a team owner in 2009, with a best finish of third at Talladega in 2011 with driver Dave Blaney. Michael Annett ran the full, 36-race schedule in Baldwin's #7 Pilot/Flying J Chevy last season, finishing 32nd in championship points. He is expected to return in 2015. Reed Sorenson drove the #36 Chevy to 34th in the final standings.(Godfather Motorsports)(1-6-2015)

  • Todd Parrott hired by Richard Childress Racing: Richard Childress Racing has hired industry veteran and championship-winning crew chief Todd Parrott as its Competition Director for the NASCAR XFINITY Series, effective immediately. Parrott brings a wealth of experience to RCR with 20 years as a crew chief in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series competition. During that time, he won 31 races while earning 144 top-five and 230 top-10 finishes. Through a span of 606 starts, he also led teams to 23 pole awards and finished in the top-five driver points standings six times. His best season was in 1999 when he led Dale Jarrett to the Sprint Cup championship. Parrott, 50, is a native of Charlotte, N.C. and followed in the footsteps of his father, Buddy Parrott, who won 49 races in 511 Sprint Cup Series starts during a 22-year career. The second-generation crew chief will report to Dr. Eric Warren, Director of Competition for RCR.(RCR), In 2014, Parrott was the crew chief for Reed Sorenson in Tommy Baldwin Racing's Sprint Cup Series #36 Chevy.(12-13-2014)

  • Tommy Baldwin Jr. and Steve Park form American Muscle Driving Experience: Two of the most successful motorsports professionals to come out of the northeast have blended their wealth of knowledge to develop the most unique driving experience anywhere in the country. New York natives, Tommy Baldwin, Jr. and Steve Park, announce the creation of The American Muscle Driving Experience. Headquartered at the famed Thompson (CT) Speedway Motorsports Park and Golf Club, the program offers three customizable skill levels to advance through utilizing everything from high-performance American muscle cars to authentic race-ready professional stock cars. The program utilizes professional motorsport vehicle data acquisition systems to minimize the learning curve, allowing participants to advance their skills quicker than any other driving school. The program's custom data acquisition systems record driver inputs such as throttle, steering, and braking; along with other vehicle parameters such as engine RPM, vehicle speed, and accelerations. GPS and video-overlay technology is also used to map out racing lines and to make comparisons to our professional instructors. The American Muscle Driving Experience will also host several of the top racing drivers in the country. Participants will not only get to meet and ask questions to these special guest instructors, they will also get to see comparisons of driving data to the professional driver in the same vehicle and can even go for a ride-a-long experience at full racing speeds. Look for the American Muscle Car Driving Experience on Reed Sorenson's Sprint Cup Series #36 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway this weekend and at Dover International Speedway on September 28th.(140 BUZZ)(9-18-2014)

  • NASCAR An American Salute Partnership Continues with TBR: For the 2014 NASCAR An American Salute, the Armed Forces Foundation and Tommy Baldwin Racing have partnered together for "Salute the Troops." For the Toyota-Save Mart 350 at Sonoma, the #36 Chevy driven by Reed Sorenson will feature the AFF's logo on the car's rear quarter panel. The logo has been displayed at every race since (and including) the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte and will continue through the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona on 4th of July weekend. Tommy Baldwin Racing and Chevrolet have already donated 60,000 minutes of calling cards for service members to call their loved ones while deployed. Fans can participate by signing "Thank You" cards at the Chevrolet display from now until the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona.(AFF)(6-22-2104)

  • Armed Forces Foundation and Chevy Join TBR's "Salute the Troops" Campaign: Tommy Baldwin Racing announced they have partnered with the Armed Forces Foundation and Chevrolet to "Salute the Troops." The Armed Forces Foundation is a non-profit dedicated to supporting and advocating for active-duty military personnel, national guardsmen, reservists, military families, and veterans. The AFF returns 95 cents of every dollar raised to service members and their families through our programs. Since 2001, the AFF has provided more than $95 million in assistance by covering travel, hotel rooms, home mortgages, car payments and everyday bills for families to be able to stay at their loved ones' sides during treatment and recovery from wounds suffered during war. "I appreciate the sacrifice these men and woman make for our country, which allows our team the freedom to go racing," said #7-Michael Annett. "I'm honored to take part in this campaign recognizing the effort that our troops give."
    In addition to partnering with the Armed Forces Foundation, Chevrolet has also signed on to help give back to those who have sacrificed. Tommy Baldwin Racing is encouraging the effort through asking fans to write "Thank You" notes. Fans can participate by going to Chevrolet display stands located at the track, where they will have collection boxes set up. Fans can write and then drop their notes into the provided boxes.
    Chevy is donating 60,000 minutes of calling time to our troops and 1,000 servicemen and women will be randomly selected to get a 60-minute calling card. The program, which kicks off with All-Star race weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway, will run through the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway in July on Independence Day weekend. "I am excited to be partnering with the Armed Forces Foundation and Chevrolet for our upcoming "Salute the Troops" campaign. I think it is a great, easy, fun way for everyone to give back to our servicemen and women," said Reed Sorenson, driver of the #36 TBR Chevrolet SS. "I think it's awesome that Chevy has joined us, and is going to donate calling cards. I hope the fans stops out at the displays sometime during the race weekends, and sign a letter to help us make this a success."
    "I'm very proud of our team for their support of the Armed Forces Foundation," said team owner Tommy Baldwin. "Saying thank you is something we often take for granted and on behalf of TBR, we salute the men and women who have served our country."
    "We're honored to partner with Tommy Baldwin Racing for the "Salute the Troops" initiative," said AFF President Patricia Driscoll. "The NASCAR community's commitment to our military is unprecedented in sports and a simple thank you goes a long way in honoring our nation's finest men and women."(TBR)(5-15-2014)
