Team Penske’s NASCAR Xfinity Series program currently has no plans to continue into the upcoming season, Walter Czarnecki, the team’s Vice Chairman, told members of the media on Thursday.

While Czarnecki firmly stated that the team has no active plans for the organization to continue into 2022, he did leave the door open to a potential return, should the desire to return to the series be sponsor-driven.

“At this point, we don’t have any races scheduled in the Xfinity program and any decision that we make to run will be sponsor-driven,” said Czarnecki. “We’ll work with our sponsors and if there’s an appetite to do something, we’ll certainly sit down and talk with them about the number of races and the drivers that would participate.”

A representative from Team Penske tells that the organization is not planning on selling their owner points or equipment to another team at this time, as the series is set to launch the 2022 season in just over a month at Daytona.

With the series’ provisional system relying on the 2021 Owner Standings for the first three events of the year, Team Penske’s current decision not to sell the No. 22’s owner points will likely have an impact on who qualifies for the Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner. 300 at Daytona.
