Multiple sources close to NASCAR have confirmed to RaceDayCT that longtime Modified competitor Andy Seuss and former NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour team owner Chris Our will announce Wednesday that they will be competing with the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2020. 

An announcement involving Seuss and Our is scheduled for the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte Wednesday morning. 

Contacted Tuesday afternoon, Our told RaceDayCT that he didn’t want to comment concerning the subject of the Wednesday announcement. Seuss also said he’d prefer not to comment on the subject of the pending announcement.

Our and Seuss have been working together on the ARCA Series since 2016. Seuss won consecutive championships (2014-15) with the former NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour. Seuss has made 12 ARCA Series starts since 2015 with one top-five and four top-10’s. 

It’s unclear whether or not the newly created Our Motorsports Xfinity Series team will run full-time in 2020. The team is expected to be at the division’s season opening event at Daytona International Speedway in February. The team is also expected to continue to field an ARCA Series car for selected events. Seuss has never made a start with the NASCAR Xfinity Series.

Our owned a NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour team from 2012 to 2015. Seven-time Whelen Modified Tour champion Mike Stefanik, 2008 Whelen Modified Tour champion Ted Christopher, Tommy Barrett Jr. and Keith Rocco all drove for Our during his short tenure with the series. Stefanik had two wins for the team in 2013 and Barrett had one series win for Our in 2014. 

Seuss, who lives in Salisbury, N.C., grew up in Hampstead, N.H., He made his first and only Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series start in July in the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. 

In 11 years competing on the Whelen Southern Modified Tour Seuss had 22 victories in 115 starts. The series was absorbed into the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour in 2017. He has made 53 Whelen Modified Tour starts since 2006 with three top-five’s and 13 top-10’s, including three starts in 2019.
