Keyed Up Motorsports to Debut at Daytona

The 2010 Sprint Cup Series will get yet another team entry for the season, as Raymond Key announced he is setting up, together with Key Motorsports (run by Raymond's brother, Curtis) a new team. Dubbed Keyed Up Motorsports, the team is scheduled to debut at Daytona.

"I have watched him run for years and it seems like everything is coming together this year," Raymond Key about his brother's Nationwide operation. "I feel that Curtis and the Key Motorsports team have the technical knowledge and ability to make us competitive in the Sprint Cup Series."

"I am very happy with our progress so far, he has our cars cleared through the NASCAR inspection process and has the engine program up and running. Curtis has a great gift of organization," he told NASCAR.

Curtis and his team will provide his brother assistance with everything from engineering to manpower, including engines and shop space. For the season, Keyed Up will use Chevrolets purchased from Dale Earnhardt, Inc. No driver for the new team has yet been selected. According to Raymond Key however, the team will not be a start-and-park one.

"I am excited to be working with Raymond and Keyed Up Motorsports on the Sprint Cup program," Curtis Key concluded. "Raymond has traveled with our Truck and Nationwide teams and has been a lot of help to us. He has wanted to start his own team and he feels it is the right time."
