Last week, we reported that the future of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team, Swan Racing, was up in the air. In the time since, the team has folded with some assets merged with another, team, some assets sold off, and Parker Kligerman left without a ride.

One of Swan Racing’s former co-owners, Anthony Marlowe, merged his stake in the team with BK Racing to keep the No. 26 Toyota on the track. As a result, Whitt raced at Richmond (Va.) International Raceway on Saturday night and still has a job.

Kligerman, on the other hand, wasn’t so lucky. The No. 30 portion of Swan Racing was sold to XxxTreme Motorsports which has unsuccessfully attempted to qualify for four Sprint Cup races, so far, this season. While XxTreme Motorsports retained the Swan Racing No. 30 crew chief, Stephen Lane, and other members of the team, J.J. Yeley, not Kligerman will drive the car. The tam began fielding the No. 30 with Yeley behind the wheel Saturday night at Richmond.

Swan Racing was previously a one-car operation, fielding the No. 30 for David Stremme until Stremme was released from the team prior to the end of 2013 in favor of younger drivers. The team opted to expand to two teams for 2014, fielding cars for two series rookies -- Kligerman and Whitt.

“Over the past couple weeks, we worked tirelessly to find an alternative to ending operations,” Swan Racing owner Brandon Davis said. “Fortunately, we were able to find a home for the No. 26 team and the No. 30 team thanks to Anthony Marlowe and Jonathan Cohen (owner of XxxTreme Motorsports). Anthony and Jonathan are both young and ambitious NASCAR enthusiasts. It is important to keep them in the sport for the long term. I am very relieved to know that the Nos. 26 and 30 will be in good hands and will continue to compete the remainder of the 2014 season. Most importantly, most of the team members have the opportunity to continue their employment in the sport and to support their families.”
