On Monday, a group of nine multi-car NASCAR Sprint Cup teams announced that they had formed an alliance called the Race Team Alliance. Charter members of the group include Chip Ganassi Racing, Hendrick Motorsports, Joe Gibbs Racing, Michael Waltrip Racing, Richard Childress Racing, Richard Petty Motorsports, Roush Fenway Racing, Stewart-Haas Racing and Team Penske. Plans are to open up membership to all full-time Sprint Cup teaems soon.

“With the encouragement of NASCAR and the manufacturers, the teams have met in various forms and forums over the yeears to explore areas of common intrest,” Michael Waltrip Racing co-owner Rob Kauffman said. “This simply formalizes what was an informal group. The key work is ‘collaboration’. We all have vested interests in the success and popularity of stock car racing. By working together and speaking with a single voice, it should be a simpler and smoother process to work with current and potential groups involved with the sport. Whether it be looking for industry-wide travel partners or collaborating on technical issues, the idea is to work together to increase revenue, spend more efficiently, and deliver more value to our partners.”

Kauffman is the first chair of the group. According to the press release sent out on Monday, he was elected to the position.

Later on Monday, NASCAR released its own announcement on the group, basically stating that the sanctioning body was aware of the formation of the group but didn’t have specific knowledge on the group’s structure or purpose. The release quoted NASCAR Vice President and Chief Communications Officer Brett Jeweks, saying:

“We are aware of the alliance concept the team owners have announced, but have vry few specifics on its structure or purpose. It is, apparently, still in development, and we’re still learning about the details, so it would be inappropriate to comment right now. NASCAR’s mission, as it has always been, is to create a fair playing field where anyone can come and compete. Our job is to support and strengthen all of the tams, large and small, across all of our series, and we’ll continue to do that. NASCAR is a unique community with hundreds of stakeholders. They all have a voice and always will.”
