What’s Happening?

New Legacy Motor Club CEO Cal Wells spoke with Autoweek’s Mike Pryson about the race team, and Wells had some spicy comments about Chevrolet. He said to Pryson that GM, who owns Chevrolet, “Left (LMC) at what I would consider a tier three, where the information was very limited and intentional.” Wells later went on to qualify that Chevy did pay attention to LMC, but investments were tied up into other race teams.

You Need to Know:

  • This likely explains why LMC moved from Chevy to Toyota. With Toyota, Wells mentioned to Pryson that LMC would be a “Tier one” organization, which would get more resources than they got at Chevrolet. He mentioned how, at Chevy, teams like Hendrick, RCR, and Trackhouse got a lot of attention before LMC.
  • It also brings up an interesting point about shared resources amongst manufacturers. They only have so much they can spread out, and, if teams are not getting the most resources, they may fall behind. LMC was never able to reach the level of Hendrick while at Chevy.
  • Many fans mentioned that some of this could be credited to LMC announcing they were leaving Chevrolet midseason. Others pointed out that this is why LMC moved to Toyota.
