Longtime NASCAR participant Mike Curb is back in the game having partnered up with Gary Baker to form Baker Curb Racing.
Recording industry vet Curb has long been tied to racing and is known as the onetime owner of Richard Petty’s #43 STP Plymouth when the King captured his 200th and last Cup Series win. Curb was also a sponsor of Dale Earnhardt’s 1980 Championship winning #2.
Baker Curb Racing took over ownership of the former Brewco Motorsports and will field former Joe Gibbs Racing property, Brad Coleman, full time in the 2008 Nationwide Series. Coleman’s opportunities at JGR were sure to dwindle with hot-shoe, Joey Logano on the 2008 horizon. With an all new, Nashville based facility, it sounds like Baker Curb Racing is ready for a run at the non-Busch-Wacker (still haven’t heard a good alternative name) title.
