Stremme will compete for Swan Racing in the remainder of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, with no plans to "start and park" as he has been forced to do in past seasons. New owner Brandon Davis stepped in late last year, creating Swan Racing and stating his intention to “race hard, every lap of every race” going forward.
"We are going to build a championship contender over time,” said Davis, “and we'll do it by competing against the best drivers in the world, not by packing up early."
"It's a new day for the No. 30 Toyota and we'll be mixing it up all season, said Stremme. Drivers are competitive by nature. We feel the need to compete in everything we do. I will get the most out of this Toyota all season starting at Phoenix International Raceway."
Stremme and Swan Racing represent an "old school" approach to racing, stretching every dollar to put the car on track each week.
"This is old school racing here at Swan,” he said. “We all pitch in to build the cars at the shop each week and race hard on the weekends.”
Swan Racing had a busy offseason building a strong foundation for the team's success. Several key hires were made that signal Swan Racing's commitment, including former NFL linebacker Bill Romanowski as a minority owner, new competition director Steve Hmiel, crew chief Tony Eury Jr. and spotter Rocky Ryan. Swan Racing has also attracted new sponsorship from Nutrition53, a health supplement company which will feature its Lean1 product on the car as a primary sponsor for 10 races beginning at Texas Motor Speedway. Lean 1 will serve as an associate sponsor the remainder of the season.
