Mooresville, North Carolina (January 6, 2009) – Tommy Baldwin

Tommy Baldwin, a five-time NASCAR Sprint Cup and former Daytona 500 winning crew chief, announced today the formation of a new Sprint Cup Series race team under the existing Tommy Baldwin Racing banner. Baldwin is no stranger to team ownership as he formed a successful Nationwide program which was responsible for bringing Unilever into the sport.┬áIt was during his ownership of the Nationwide team that Baldwin began a business relationship with Joey Arrington, of Arrington Manufacturing, Inc. Baldwin will secure his NASCAR Sprint Cup engines in 2009 from Arrington Manufacturing who works closely with Toyota. “We are honored to be working with Tommy again, this time on his Cup efforts. He has always been great to work with and we are looking forward to a successful year,” said Arrington.
