Swan Racing Adds New Investor

Anthony Marlowe joins Swan Racing
Swan Racing has announced the addition of Anthony Marlowe as a minority owner. Marlowe, a native of Iowa City, IA, has been involved in NASCAR as a sponsor with various teams since 2011.  

Majority owner Brandon Davis said Marlowe’s leadership and experience with business-to-business deals will be valuable as the team seeks additional partnerships. "Anthony is an entrepreneur like me," said Davis. "He has the same work ethic and the same approach when it comes to finding creative and innovative solutions. Anthony is the perfect fit for the team and will be an integral part of it going forward." 

"This is a remarkable day, which for me marks the intersection of my passion for NASCAR and my dream of owning part of a professional sports team at the highest level," said Marlowe. "I kept a close eye on Swan Racing during its inaugural season last year and was so impressed with Brandon Davis, the way they do business, and their pursuit of excellence that I wanted to be part of his Cup team for the long-haul." 

Marlowe joins other successful investors in Swan Racing including former NFL great Bill Romanowski. Romanowski, who played 16 seasons in the NFL, was an early investor in the team. Additionally, Romanowski's business, Lean1 Health Shakes, is a primary sponsor for Swan Racing. 

Marlowe, 34, is co-founder and president of TMone (pronounced T-M-one), a domestic customer relationship management firm supporting Fortune 500 companies. He is also the managing member of Iowa City Capital Partners, which is a private investment firm that provides equity funding to companies. Inc. Magazine recognized Marlowe in 2007, at the age of 28, as one of the 25 youngest CEOs of the 5000 fastest growing companies in America.
Swan Racing will field a pair of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series entries this season for drivers Parker Kligerman and Cole Whitt.

  1. I hope he pulls a Brandon Davis and steals the company right out from under him , the same way Brandon Davis did to David Stremme.
