As expected, Spire Motorsports has confirmed by way of a press release that they are the organization that completed a purchase of the Leavine Family Racing charter and assets. According to the release from Spire, they will be expanding to a two-car team in 2021.

“This is an exciting moment for Spire as we take the natural next step in our long-term plan to build our race team and prepare for the Next Gen car in 2022,” said Spire Motorsports co-owner Jeff Dickerson. “Bob Leavine invested more than money into LFR and this industry. He built a team brick by brick and we have long admired how he took his own steps in the garage. He also did it with his family at his side. We won’t let that be lost in this transaction. When you build something with your family, it always means a little bit more. His ability to connect with fans was genuine and we are thankful he chose us to carry this team forward.”

As far as what is included in the “assets” of LFR, that would be the No. 95 team Charter as well as the race shop. The Joe Gibbs Racing vehicles and chassis will be returned as they were part of a technical alliance between JGR and LFR.

Spire Motorsports has fielded the No. 77 team since acquiring the former Furniture Row Racing No. 78 team charter following the 2018 NASCAR Cup Series season.

While Spire has not fielded the most competitive cars in the series during that time (31.6 average finish in 58 starts), the team does have a win on their record which came with Justin Haley behind the wheel of the No. 77 machine during the rain shortened Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona last July.
