Chip Ganassi Racing Taps Ross Chastain to Drive the No. 42 Chevrolet

Chip Ganassi Racing Taps Ross Chastain to Drive the No. 42 Chevrolet”

Ross Chastain is moving up to the top flight of stock vehicle racing.

The first major seat up for grabs in the 2020-21 NASCAR Cup Series "silly season" has been claimed by NASCAR Xfinity Series regular Ross Chastain. During the break, though, Larson was sacked by the race team and indefinitely suspended by NASCAR after he used a racial slur during a live online stream of an iRacing event. The 48-year-old veteran sits 25th in points after missing the first four races of the season, and the CGR No. 42 team changed crew chiefs - Phil Surgen in for Chad Johnston - ahead of the Cup Series' doubleheader weekend at MI last month. Following three seasons of racing in the NGROTS, Chastain continued to make starts in that series while he began racing in the NXS in 2014. In the three races Chastain ran for the team that year, he earned the pole award at Darlington, a win at Las Vegas, and a runner-up finish at Richmond, which helped him earn a spot in the NXS playoffs. He finished the season second in Truck points standings.

Chastain, a Chip Ganassi Racing development driver since 2018, is now competing full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for Kaulig Racing, where he qualified for the playoffs for a second time following a runner-up finish at Bristol Motor Speedway over the weekend.

He competes for Kaulig Racing full-time in the Xfinity Series, but has maintained a relationship with CGR, driving for the No. 77 Cup auto at the Daytona 500 and the Coca-Cola 500 this year in a partnership between CGR and Spire Motorsports. "Of course", he said. "Everybody in this entire garage would".

"I can't thank Chip enough for this opportunity", Chastain said in a statement from the team. Racing in the Cup Series with a serious contender has always been my goal, and I'm looking forward to joining what is a very strong team. Chastain first competed for CGR in 2018, behind the wheel of the No. 42 Chevrolet in the NXS.

Instead, Chastain focused his efforts on chasing the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series title in 2019. He has made 79 career Cup Series starts with one top-10 finish, 10th in the 2019 Daytona 500 for owner Jay Robinson.

He drove in 77 of 92 Cup, Xfinity and Truck races previous year.
