Our Motorsports Joins Xfinity Series in 2020, Seuss Expected to Drive

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer

Despite the NASCAR Xfinity Series cutting the field down from 38 to 36 cars allowed to race in 2020, it still hasn’t stopped teams such as Our Motorsports joining the fray.

The team announced at the NASCAR Hall of Fame Wednesday they’ll be entering the No. 02 Chevrolet full-time with two-time Whelen Southern Modified Tour champion Andy Seuss expecting to drive cars throughout the season.

Not only Seuss has been running for the team in the ARCA Menards Series since 2016, he also manages day-to-day operations.

Seuss said the North Carolina based team, led by Chris Our, have been supportive of him climbing up the national touring ladder.

“Chris has been a huge influence and supporter of helping to continue the dream of competing at the highest level in NASCAR,” Seuss said. “He is a great guy, whose passion for motorsports has helped countless drivers over the years live their dreams to compete for wins every weekend.”

While an official driver lineup won’t be announced until January, Our said he’s excited to expand his race team as the season opener at Daytona International Speedway is less than four months away.

“We’re excited to be expanding to compete in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2020,” Our said. “NASCAR’s marketing platform offers an opportunity like no other for both our existing partners and potential new partners. We have a great group of employees at Our Motorsports, who continue to work hard to grow the team. I am looking forward to getting to Daytona in February and seeing the No. 02 on the track.”

Our’s ARCA program will continue on a part-time basis and will have a full display of their Xfinity Series program at CONEXPO in Las Vegas next March.
