The meaning of «ny racing team»

NY Racing Team (formerly Xxxtreme Motorsport and Team Xtreme Racing) is an American professional stock car racing team in the NASCAR Cup Series. The team last fielded the No. 7 Ford Mustang GT part-time for J. J. Yeley. NY Racing Team is owned by John Cohen, who is one of the few African-Americans to have owned a NASCAR team in a major touring series.

Johnathan "John" Cohen (born in 1975) is an African-American entrepreneur and team owner from New Jersey. Cohen began his business interests in nightclubs and taverns, before forming his race team, Xxxtreme Motorsport in the spring of 2009.

On May 21, 2018, it was announced the team would be returning to the Cup Series for the Coca-Cola 600 for the first time since 2015, receiving a multi-year deal with Steakhouse Elite as a sponsor. J. J. Yeley was announced to drive the No. 7 car in a partnership with Premium Motorsports.[3] After qualifying 40th, Yeley finished 38th after suffering from fuel pump issues on lap 191.[4] The following week at Pocono they fielded a car in association with Premium Motorsports.[5] Yeley qualified the car 37th and finished 32nd.[6] After missing several races, the team returned to the track for the Coke Zero Sugar 400 in collaboration with BK Racing. Yeley drove the Steakhouse Elite No. 23 to an 18th place finish after starting 40th.[7] The following week at Kentucky they finished 38th.[8] After skipping the New Hampshire race, the team finished 28th at Pocono after starting 20th.[9] After missing two more events, the team returned, in partnership with Premium, at Bristol. Yeley brought the No. 7 car home in 34th place.[10] The team's collaboration with the No. 23 team continued after Front Row Motorsports' purchase of the No. 23 charter. Yeley drove the car to a 17th place finish at Las Vegas.[11]

NY Racing continued its partnership with Front Row Motorsports after the purchase of BK's charter. During the autumn Talladega race, the No. 23 team switched manufacturers from Toyota to Ford before switching back to Toyota for the next two races. Yeley continued being the driver of the No. 23 Toyota for the rest of the season and during the final race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, BK Racing operated as a Ford Fusion. With BK Racing officially shutting down at season's end and being absorbed into Front Row Motorsports, NY Racing and Front Row Motorsports ended their partnership.

For 2019, NY Racing planned to run a No. 7 Steakhouse Elite Ford Mustang with Yeley as the driver, but they ended up never making an attempt.

Before the 2014 Richmond spring race, the team purchased the owner points and assets of the recently defunct No. 30 from Swan Racing, including their race shop in Statesville, North Carolina, hoping to end their recent struggles in qualifying by having a solid points base.[12] The team used No. 30 for Richmond due to NASCAR rules regarding ownership transfers, but switched back to the No. 44 thereafter.[13]
