Team Hezeberg to run partial 2022 Cup schedule

Team Hezeberg and RBR are thrilled to announce the formation of their new NASCAR Cup Series program. Team Hezeberg Powered by Reaume Brothers will be joining NASCAR’s top-echelon in 2022 on a part-time basis.  This team comes from a partnership between Hezeberg Systems out of the Netherlands, and Reaume Brothers Racing based in Race City USA, Mooresville, North Carolina. The team will feature a pair of extremely talented drivers behind the wheel: NASCAR Whelen Euro  Champion Loris Hezemans and former Formula One Champion Jacques Villeneuve.

Hezemans and Villeneuve are two drivers who have long resumés. Villeneuve, who has 11 career F1 wins and an Indy 500 victory to go alongside his F1 Championship, is also no stranger to stock car racing. He has competed in several NASCAR Cup series, NASCAR Xfinity Series, and NASCAR Euro events, including a near win in the 2012 Xfinity Race at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, a track named after his late father. Hezemans meanwhile, is a NASCAR Euro champion, who has been dominant on the road courses this season. He has also made several Xfinity starts himself, in efforts supported by RBR.

The plan is for Hezemans to compete in all road course races and possibly some short tracks.

For next week’s Next Gen test at Charlotte, Hezemans will drive Monday and Villeneuve on Tuesday.
