Stewart-Haas Racing has named Chase Briscoe the next driver of the No. 14 Ford Mustang, beginning in 2021. Briscoe, who currently drives for the team in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, has a series high nine wins on the season. With the departure of Clint Bower at the end of the season and Bowyer joining the commentary booth at Fox for next season, the most logical choice to replace him was Briscoe. Briscoe will join 2020 rookie Cole Custer, Kevin Harvick and Aric Almirola for the teams 2021 NASCAR Cup Series campaign.
Tony Stewart commented on Briscoe’s promotion to the Cup Series by stating, “Chase has worked incredibly hard to make his mark in NASCAR and has earned this promotion to the NASCAR Cup Series. Thanks to HighPoint and Ford, we were able to make it happen. Without Ford seeing him early on and recognizing his talent and HighPoint backing his efforts in Xfinity and now Cup, we wouldn’t have had the opportunity to bring him into our system. Since we’ve gotten together with Ford and HighPoint, we’ve been able to do great things with Chase and I feel there are more great things ahead of us.”
Briscoe is one of the lead contenders to claim the 2020 NASCAR Xfinity Series Championship.
