Swan Racing Decides To Make Changes

Several NASCAR teams have begun to make changes within their organizations and Swan Racing has become the latest team to join that list.

Swan Racing announced on Friday that the team will be making some changes within the No. 30 team beginning at Chicagoland Speedway with Cole Whitt set to take over behind the wheel. Whitt will be replacing David Stremme, who has been with the team all season with the exception of the Daytona 500.

Along with Chicagoland, Whitt is scheduled to race in the No. 30 in four other races including Kansas, Charlotte, Talladega and Phoenix. The team also plans to end the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season possibly with two other drivers, which are yet to be revealed.

Within his NASCAR career, Whit has competed within all three of NASCAR’s touring series, the Truck Series, Nationwide and Cup Series. He has competed in 11 Nationwide Series races this season and competed in that series full-time in 2012 with JR Motorsports. Whitt has also made seven Cup Series starts within the last two years.

Swan Racing joins the list of team preparing to make changes for the 2014 season within the active 2013 season. Stremme also becomes the latest driver in need of a ride for next season, with his time with Swan Racing coming to an end at Richmond.

The 2013 Cup Series season has been the first full season under Davis’s ownership and the team’s best finish has been a 12th place finish at Talladega.

With Swan Racing as the latest team making changes and trying to adjust in advance for 2014, it also adds another interesting twist into a silly season.
