Carl Long Motorsports to attempt Kansas Cup race UPDATE: Ok .. will break the news here ... MBM motorsports will bring our chevy #66 to Kansas to compete in the Monster Energy Cup Series. I am hoping to sign a couple sponsors to get us there. The special deal of the week. $25,000 gets the whole car for NASCAR's top series. It has been a few years since i was able to race in cup and I am very excited to be back. The sad part is we are running short on $ to get there. I have asked several of my fellow xfinity drivers if they can squeeze some $ from their sponsors and i will let them drive. So we will have car 66 there with George Church as crew chief and Joey Arrington provid (Carl Long Motorsports Facebook page)(5-5-2017)
UPDATE Race team owner/driver Carl Long, who has been banned from competing in the NASCAR Cup garage since having an illegal engine during the all-star race weekend in May 2009 and unable to pay the team's $200,000 fine, plans to be back in the Cup garage next week. "[NASCAR] made me an agreement so I can get over there. ... I'm just pleased to be able to make a living on the Cup side again," Long said. Long, who had bought that engine from a supplier and has said he had no idea it was illegal, has been working as a car owner and part-time driver in the Xfinity Series and will continue those efforts as well. He bought a Cup car from HScott Motorsports after last season and plans to field it, pending sponsorship, next week at Kansas Speedway since the Xfinity teams have an off week. A NASCAR spokesman confirmed that Long has met conditions to return to the Cup garage.(ESPN)(5-6-2017)
