CONCORD, NC — It’s silly season weekend in Charlotte. Sunday, GMS will unveil their plans for the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season. But on Saturday, another team announced their participation next year too.
Team Hezeberg, a NASCAR Whalen Euro Series team will compete part-time in 2022 and then eye moving up on a full-time basis in 2023.
It’s all made possible by a joint effort between Toine Hezemans and Dutch businessman Ernst Berg. That plus an alliance with Reaune Brothers Racing who will offer technical support, add up to a new entry in Cup.
The car will be a No. 27 Ford and driven by 2019 NASCAR Whelen Euro Series champion Loris Hezemans. He will race on all the road courses. Both he and Jacques Villeneuve will test the new car next week on the ROVAL here in Charlotte.
Some may wonder, who is this team. They’ve started their career in 2018 and was a champion a year later. They then won another championship in 2020 too.
Hezemans, won 11 times in it and leads the standings again. He’s also made three Xfinity Series starts including two of which coming this year.
