In NASCAR, the driver is important, but his equipment and the team around them are very important as well. There are a few up-and-coming race teams in NASCAR, but which ones are capable of winning a NASCAR Cup Series Championship in the coming years? Here is a look at some future Cup Series Championship Race Teams.

Trackhouse Racing

Trackhouse Racing burst onto the NASCAR scene early in this decade, which is strange to say considering that we are still early on in this decade. From Justin Marks and Pitbull creating Trackhouse in 2021 to Marks buying out Chip Ganassi Racing before the 2022 season to expand to a two-car team, they brought Ross Chastain into the fold. Chastain proceeded to finish second in the Cup Series standings in the 2022 season.

At some point, Trackhouse will win a Cup Series Championship, and they have a chance to do it this season. They have quickly become a race team to be reckoned with, and they are a true Championship contender. If you keep searching around it, eventually, you will strike gold. Trackhouse is no different.

23XI Racing

23XI Racing is in a similar situation to Trackhouse even if Trackhouse has gotten closer to a Championship in recent years. 23XI Racing has two young drivers to build around Bubba Wallace and Tyler Reddick. They have both of their cars in the Playoffs in their third season.

They are trending upward, albeit at a slower rate than Trackhouse is. 23XI Racing is growing as a race team, and they have enough driver talent to win a Championship. This year may be the year if Tyler Reddick can continue winning or if Wallace can get some clutch victories.

Spire Motorsports

Spire Motorsports’ stock has risen quite a bit over the course of this year. Now, they are beginning to spend a lot of money as they have now bought a third charter to field a third car in 2024. They also have major sponsorship from Gainbridge, Corey LaJoie to build around and a young driver with some connection to in Carson Hocevar.

They are not quite there yet, but they are a few key steps away from becoming a contending NASCAR Cup Series race team. If they play their cards right, they could become a Championship winning race team.

Kaulig Racing

Kaulig Racing slowly built their team up over a few years in Xfinity, and now they are a championship contender in the series. They are trying to do the same in Cup, but it will take some time before they get there. Be that as it may, they are already race winners at NASCAR’s highest level.

If they keep building, they can become a Championship contender. It will take time, though, and they are not nearly as close as someone like 23XI or Trackhouse. However, Kaulig is still building itself up.

Front Row Motorsports

This may have seemed crazy a few years ago, but Front Row Motorsports has turned a corner in recent years. They made the Playoffs this year thanks to a win by Michael McDowell at the Indianapolis Road Course, and McDowell was within the Playoffs on points for a large part of the year. Now, they have signed McDowell and Todd Gilliland beyond this season.

Front Row has had to scratch and claw to get to where they are now. It may take time to get them to be a true Championship contender, but they can get there. They are building, and they have a Truck Series team to groom prospects for the Cup Series.

It will be interesting to see how these race teams develop as time goes on. Maybe in a few years, these owners will have owners championship trophies to put on their mantle.
