Not only is NASCAR returning to live Cup Series racing Sunday at Darlington Raceway, so too is Tommy Baldwin Racing.

The team announced Monday that it will field the No. 7 Chevrolet, its first appearance in the Cup Series since the 2017 season.

“I am excited to be returning to the NASCAR Cup Series,” team owner Tommy Baldwin Jr. said in a media release. “I have been in this sport for a long time, and I believe now is the best time to get back to the track.”

Baldwin spent last season as a crew chief for Premium Motorsports, primarily working with Reed Sorenson.

Josh Bilicki will drive for Baldwin in Sunday’s race. Bilicki competed in 10 Cup races last season for Rick Ware Racing.

“Darlington is one of my favorite tracks, and I can’t wait to get back on track,” Bilicki said.

Primary sponsor on the car will be Gravely Mowers, a high-performance commercial lawn mower company.
