JTG Daughtery will run No. 37 team as an open car UPDATE

UPDATE: Ryan Preece met with the media Tuesday and discussed the team’s focus for this year:

HOW STRESSED ARE YOU ENTERING SPEEDWEEKS NOT BEING LOCKED INTO THE RACE?

“I’m not stressed at all. We’re going to go down, and if everything works out the way I think it’s laid out, we should qualify on speed. So, I feel pretty confident with it.”

DOES YOUR TEAM NOT HAVING A CHARTER CHANGE YOUR APPROACH TO EACH WEEKEND?

“I think… you show up every single week trying to get the most out of your equipment. So that doesn’t change anything about what I’m doing. Our approach for Daytona is the same as it has been every year, except I think we’ll be a little more aggressive than we have been in years past when it comes to stages. We’ve typically tried to lay back and make sure we are there at the end. But I think stage points are so important now that you have to race every single lap.”

WHAT YOU HAVE YOU BEEN TOLD IN TERMS OF SPONSORSHIP AND A FULL SEASON?

“I think you guys know as much as we all know. We’re going to continue week after week and hopefully everything is there, we’re having a solid season and everything comes together.”

ORIGINAL POST 1-29-2021: Fox Sports’ Bob Pockrass talked with JTG Daugherty co-owner Brad Daugherty about the 2021 plans for the #37 team of Ryan Preece.

The team has sponsorship for 24 races and will operate as an open team.  The charter that had been used over the previous three years is now controlled by Spire Motorsports.

The team could scale back to a partial schedule if additional funding is not obtained.
