Big Machine Racing Partners with Richard Childress Racing for 2022 Xfinity Series Season

Amid a respectable debut season, Big Machine Racing announced Thursday it will return to the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2022 with Jade Buford as its driver — and a major new partner alongside it.

The team, owned by Big Machine Records CEO Scott Borchetta, will work with Richard Childress Racing in an enhanced partnership with the longtime championship organization.

““To be able to join Richard Childress and the iconic RCR means we just put a turbocharger on our Big Machine Racing program,” Borchetta said in a team release. “As a racer and fan, I’ve always looked up to Richard, all of his accomplishments and his organization. He’s a winner in the truest sense and I look forward to the day that we can share our first victory together.”
