NASCAR’s Trackhouse Racing team expects a majority of its operation next season to be made up of former Chip Ganassi Racing employees.
Team owner Justin Marks told The Observer on Thursday that Trackhouse will employ more than 100 people as it expands from fielding one to two Cup Series cars in 2022.
CGR employs 120-150 people for its NASCAR operations, according to an estimate provided by the team last month, but the shop will close at the end of the current season as Trackhouse acquires its NASCAR assets, including Ganassi’s two Cup charters.
Trackhouse did not provide an exact figure for the number of CGR employees it will absorb, but indicated that its future makeup would consist of both current Trackhouse and CGR employees. Currently, there are only a handful of individuals working for Trackhouse since most of its staff is contracted through Richard Childress Racing.
