Our Motorsport has announced a major change for the 2022 season and beyond. Mary Our, daughter of Chris Our, is the new co-owner of the NASCAR Xfinity Series organization as well as the owner of Team #02.

Our Motorsports announced the news on Monday 31st January. The team provided some background on Mary’s love of motorsports and her history growing up with racing before confirming that she will be the person in charge of Brett Moffitt’s team as she strives to make a bigger impact at NASCAR.

“I look forward to taking on a bigger role within the team,” Mary said in a statement from the team. “I see my father as a great role model in my life, I want to make him proud and follow in his footsteps. I look forward to achieving the goals we have set together. This is an incredible opportunity and I am eager to learn and grow professionally within the sport and I can’t wait to celebrate victory with Brett this season.”

The move to add Mary as co-owner of the team comes as the Xfinity series team prepares for a pivotal season. Our motorsport originally started in 2020 with an entry into the national series before expanding to multiple cars in 2021.

Our motorsport now enters the 2022 season with three full-time entries. Moffitt will return with the team for his third year and will join forces with Mary as he attempts to make the playoffs. For comparison, Jeb Burton and Anthony Alfredo will both be making their first appearances for Our Motorsports after spending the 2021 season with different organizations.

Burton last drove the number 10 for Kaulig Racing and made the playoffs after winning at Talladega Superspeedway. Alfredo spent 2021 in the Cup Series while driving for Front Row Motorsports. Now he returns to the Xfinity series and joins the revamped Our Motorsports lineup.


Our motorsport will pursue an important goal

The third-year Xfinity Series team has achieved some success in a short space of time. These include 24 top 10 finishes and six top five finishes. However, the team has yet to reach Victory Lane.

Our Motorsport and its trio of drivers will pursue that goal throughout the 2022 season, starting at a track where Moffitt almost won in 2021. He finished second overall behind Austin Cindric in the season-opening beef. It’s what’s for dinner. 300 on February 13, 2021.

Moffitt will once again gear up for the season-opening trip to Daytona International Speedway, joining two teammates at the Superspeedway. The trio of drivers will have the opportunity to help each other out at critical moments, which could potentially result in a win for the fledgling organisation.

One factor that will play into the potential win is the addition of Burton. A native of Virginia, his Xfinity Series career has seen him battle for wins with 17 starts, one win, nine top 10 finishes and six top five finishes at superspeedways. That run includes two fourth places at Daytona International Speedway in 2021. Burton has consistently struggled at superspeedways, and he should have an opportunity to continue that trend in the 2022 season.
