Chase Briscoe Ditching NASCAR Ford Team For Toyota In 2025

Chase Briscoe’s tenure with The Blue Oval has come to an end. At the end of the 2024 Cup Series season, he’ll part ways with his current NASCAR Ford team, Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR), and take up post behind the wheel of the No. 19 Toyota TRD Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) in 2025.

Currently, Briscoe pilots the No. 14 NASCAR Ford Mustang Dark Horse for SHR. However, SHR is closing down at the end of the season, leaving Briscoe (and five other drivers) to find new rides for 2025. Briscoe is now spoken for, and will take over the No. 19 Camry in place of veteran Martin Truex Jr., who recently announced that he will retire from full-time competition in the Cup Series at the end of this year.

Briscoe is in his fourth full-time Cup Series season, and signed on with JGR for multiple seasons beginning in 2025. He began racing on dirt tracks before transitioning to stock car racing in 2015. He earned his first career victory at Phoenix Raceway in March 2022 behind the wheel of the No. 14 Mustang, and boasts 12 top-five finishes, 27 top-10 finishes, and two pole awards. He was the 2021 Sunoco Rookie of the Year and has 11 Xfinity Series victories and two Truck Series wins.

Bass Pro Shops, longtime sponsor of Truex’s efforts in the No. 19 Camry, will stay on board, meaning Briscoe will continue to carry its colors next year. Secondary and tertiary sponsors have yet to be announced.

“I’m excited for this opportunity with Joe Gibbs Racing and Bass Pro Shops,” Briscoe said in a statement. “From a competition standpoint, JGR is the place to be if you want to go win races week in and week out and to race for the championship every year.”

While Briscoe has nailed down plans for 2025, that still leaves several NASCAR Ford drivers without a home next year. That includes Cup racers Josh Berry, Noah Gragson, Ryan Preece, as well as Cole Custer and Riley Herbst in the Xfinity Series. It’s worth noting that Front Row Motorsports, another Blue Oval-backed team, is expanding its operations to field three Mustang race cars next year, and with the departure of Michael McDowell at the end of the season, that means two seats are available as potential landing spots for SHR’s remaining drivers.

        Front Row is rumoured to be buy one SHR charter.

        Carl Haas is keeping one ( whether or not stays with Ford is unknown at this time ) forming a single car operation.

        That leaves 2 charters up for grabs

    Would have been a good choice for the Wood Brothers. Hate to say it but Harrison Burton just isn’t cutting it. Once again Ford looses anther good driver to another manufacturer.
