Trackhouse Racing hired many former Chip Ganassi Racing employees

Trackhouse Racing has absorbed most former Chip Ganassi Racing employees.

The NASCAR team estimated that 115 of its 130 employees formerly worked at CGR, which closed its NASCAR operations after a sale to Trackhouse owner Justin Marks.

The acquisition was announced in late June, while the official opening of Trackhouse’s rebranded race shop in Concord took place last week as teams prepare for the 2022 NASCAR season.

Marks previously told The Observer that he expected Trackhouse to employ more than 100 former Ganassi employees; the latest estimate is confirmation that many of those individuals have moved to the expanding team, which will field two Cup cars next season.
