Noah Gragson to join Front Row Motorsports in 2025

Front Row Motorsports, which previously announced it would add a third team next year, announced Wednesday that it has signed Noah Gragson to a multi-year deal to race for one of its teams starting next season.

Gragson’s car number, crew chief and sponsors will be announced later this year.

Gragson will team up with current FRM driver Todd Gilliland, with sources telling that FRM should announce its third driver within the next month.

Gragson, who currently drives SHR’s No. 10 Ford, was left idle after SHR co-owners Gene Haas and Tony Stewart decided to shut down the four-car operation at the end of the season (Haas later said it would field a Cup and two Xfinity teams in 2025).

Gragson’s SHR teammates, Chase Briscoe and Josh Berry, recently announced their plans for next season, with Briscoe moving to the No. 19 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing and Berry moving to the Wood Brothers’ iconic No. 21 Ford.

“I think a lot of people have seen the growth of Front Row Motorsports over the last few seasons,” Gragson said. “This team, along with Ford Performance, has shown that it has the ability to win and wants to win more.

“When I met Bob (Jenkins) and Jerry (Freeze), there is a determination and a plan to continue to grow and compete with the best. There is a strong commitment on their part and I am ready to do my best next season.

“Until then, I want to say that I am focused on the task at hand, to finish the season with the intention of competing for wins at Stewart-Haas Racing.”

Gragson’s path to FRM

The 25-year-old Las Vegas-born driver rose to fame after winning twice in the Truck Series and 13 times in the Xfinity Series, and finishing second in the series standings in 2022.

Gragson began his rookie 2023 Cup season with Legacy Motor Club but was suspended from the team and later NASCAR in August for violating the sport’s code of conduct. He was reinstated later that year.

Gragson has seven top-10s and two top-fives in 59 career Cup starts, most of which came this season with SHR.

“We feel like this is a great opportunity and the perfect time to bring Noah into our organization,” team owner Bob Jenkins said. “He has just the right amount of experience to break out and be a winner in the NASCAR Cup Series for years to come. This season Noah has started to get the finishes and consistently race up front, which is what we expected from him.

“By joining our team, staying with Ford Performance and welcoming him to our partners, we will accelerate his opportunity to win races and compete in the playoffs. This is the driver we want to get us more wins.”
