While Front Row Motorsports confirmed they will remain a two-car operation in the NASCAR Cup Series next season, it revealed that Anthony Alfredo would not be returning.
Alfredo competed for rookie of the year in the No. 38 Ford Mustang last season. He finished 30th in the championship standings with a top-10 finish in the second Talladega Superspeedway race.
“We would like to thank Anthony for being an outstanding ambassador for our team and for our No. 38 partners,” said Jerry Freeze, General Manager of Front Row Motorsports. “He showed a lot of speed in very difficult conditions. He is a true professional and we wish him nothing but success in his future racing endeavours. ”
A driver for the car will be announced when it is completed.
Daytona 500 winner Michael McDowell returns to the No. 34 Ford Mustang for his fifth season with the team. McDowell finished the year with a career high five in the top-10 and, by qualifying for the playoffs, he finished his career best in 16th in the standings.
“We’re going to have a very busy three months as we build for 2022,” Freeze said. “Our men and women are working hard as we usher in the next generation of NASCAR. It is an exciting time and we are up to the challenge and excitement.”
Front Row will “continue to analyze” its Camping World Truck Series program for 2022. Todd Gilliland has driven the truck for two seasons and the team took its first win at Circuit of the Americas in May.
“We are very pleased with the progress that both our programs have made on the track this season,” said Freeze. “We feel that our organization has taken another step to be more competitive and bring more value to our partners. We need even more consistency, but we can’t take away from the success and hard work of the organization this year. We are very proud of that effort.”
