Live Fast Motorsports switches from Ford to Chevrolet | Rare Techy
As Live Fast Motorsports enters its third year as a full-time Nascar Cup Series team, the No. 78 car will switch from Ford to Chevrolet.
The switch to Chevrolet comes after Live Fast Motorsports was the lowest-rated charterer in the 2022 season, finishing 36th in the owners’ standings after finishing 32nd in 2021. Co-Owners BJ McLeod and Matt Tifft, who is the youngest owner in the sport. , the team now gets ECR engines.
“Our team is excited to transition to Chevrolet,” said McLeod. “Chevrolet Camaros have proven to be a great success on the track, and Live Fast Motorsports looks forward to building on that success.”
McLeod himself competed in 29 races in 2022, with one top-ten finish at Daytona in August.
Andy Lally, Scott Heckert, Kyle Tilley and Josh Williams filled out the rest of the Live Fast Motorsports schedule. The team’s 2023 driver lineup has not been announced.
The team started in 2021 after Go Fas Racing closed its doors. Unable to race after several seizures, Tifft entered ownership at the same time as Michael Jordan and Pitbull.
They were associated with Joe Falk, who owns the Cup Series charter that Go Fas also used. Live Fast previously had an alliance with Stewart-Haas Racing, but it is unknown if it will partner with another Chevrolet team in 2023.
