It is a seldom event to see a team owner change the manufacturer, but 2022 has already seen two teams change manufacturers in the Craftsman Truck Series when Kyle Busch Motorsports moved to a Chevrolet after signing with Richard Childress Racing and David Gilliland not only changing the name of the team but moving to a Toyota for the 2023 season.
On December 1, Live Fast Motorsports who field the number 78 car in the Cup Series has announced that they are moving from a Ford to a Chevrolet for the new season.
Live Fast Motorsports is owned by Joe Falk, Matt Tifft, and owner/driver BJ McLeod; with Jessica McLeod as the team’s CEO.
BJ McLeod spoke on making the switch saying, “our team is excited to make this transition to Chevrolet. Chevrolet Camaros have proven great success on the track and Live Fast Motorsports is looking forward to becoming a part of this advance.”
Matt Tifft added, “we’re looking forward to racing for Chevrolet, the winningest manufacturer in NASCAR. We’ll also be getting engine support from ECR engines, and we know our program will benefit from their technologies and power under the hood.”
