MOORESVILLE, N.C. – The future of Swan Racing, which fields cars in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for rookie drivers Parker Kligerman and Cole Whitt, is very much in doubt.

The team owned by Brandon Davis released a statement Thursday indicating that they would be reevaluating the future of the two-car Toyota program. Davis purchased the team, then known as Inception Motorsports, in late 2012 and re-branded it Swan Racing

“The team has been unable to secure the kind of sponsorship required to effectively operate the team. As a result, the team management is exploring every available option. We hope to be in position to provide a detailed update in the near future,” the statement read.

Swan Racing expanded to two cars in 2014 after fielding one car full-time last season for various drivers. It has been a rough season for both teams, with Whitt ranked 33rd and Kligerman 38th in the championship standings.

At this time it is not known if Swan Racing will enter the upcoming NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event at Richmond (Va.) Int’l Raceway on April 26.
