Tommy Baldwin Racing planning a partial schedule this season

After announcing the team would compete this weekend at Darlington Raceway for its first NASCAR Cup Series event since 2017, Tommy Baldwin Jr., team owner of Tommy Baldwin Racing, revealed to Frontstretch his tentative plan for the rest of the season.

“We’re probably looking to do five to seven [races] this year, at the most,” Baldwin told Frontstretch. “We’ll see what happens. Maybe we’ll gain some momentum and do some more.”

At Darlington, Josh Bilicki will pilot the No. 7 Chevrolet, his first Cup start since the 2019 season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Baldwin noted the team is looking at competing in both races at Charlotte Motor Speedway this month (May 24, 27). Bilicki, though he couldn’t confirm, is expected to be in several of the events the team competes in this year.

Baldwin confirmed he will be the crew chief of the No. 7 car, something he’s done 609 previous times at the Cup level, winning with Ward Burton and Kasey Kahne.
