?Paul Andrews ?Roush/Yates
Thru July in 2012, the team attemoted a few races and ran with Speed and Bires. Andrews was named to drive in 12 races, but has so far attempted only one. Andrews father was only the crew chief when his son, Tim, was the driver (7-19-2012). Go Green Racing planned to make its first start at Bristol in March and run 10-12 races in 2012. Tim Andrews was slated as the driver with his father, Paul Andrews, serving as the crew chief. Go Green Racing has purchased their NSCS cars from Roush Fenway Racing and will run the Roush/Yates FR9 motor at all 2012 Cup races.(1-20-2012)

After Martinsville Ware and Gunselman spilt and the team is looking for a sponsor, has not been to a race since. Hill went back to the Nationwide Series and the sponsor left (4-23-2012). Raines will run the car at Martinsville, no word when/if Hill will return (3-29-2012). Hill failed to qualify for the races at Phoenix, Bristol and Auto Club. Hill made his debut at Las Vegas (3-25-2012). Failed to make the Daytona 500 (2-23-2012). Plan to run full season with Mike Wallace at Daytona on Feb. Timmy Hill will take over the ride a few races in, likely at Martinsville, Auto Club or Texas. Rick Ware Racing joined forces with Mex Q and Gunselman (2-15-2012). Undecided on driver for 2012, supposedly will employ a few drivers in 2012. Had announced Josh Wise would run for rookie of the year, but supposedly is looking at other drivers to run some races in 2012 (1-23-2012). Team plans to run the full 2012 season with Josh Wise running for rookie of the year (10-19-2011). Gunselman took over ownership of the team in August 2011. Larry Gunselman leased the car / team in 2011. The team fell out of the top 35 in owners points and missed some races in 2011 as a start-and-parker.

Team attempted Daytona 500 with Waltrip, then Falk bought the #33 team from Richard Childress and will merge this team with that one, running many drivers and running Chevy (4-12-2012). Looks like a one-race deal for Michael Waltrip to attempt to make the Daytona 500.(2-13-2012)
