Earlier this year NASCAR implemented a charter system in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. The system guarantees starting spots to 36 teams in the 40-car field.

The initial charter distribution was based on teams who attempted to qualify for every race for the previous three seasons.

In the midst of this offseason, while drivers switch teams, a number of charters have been leased or sold from one organization to another.

NASCAR.com has the list of current homes for all 36 charters with five having changed hands since the end of the season.

The only charter not currently assigned to a car is one sold by HScott Motorsports to Premium Motorsports.

Here’s the list of teams with charters.
