HScott Moves Shop, Reveals Bowyer’s Number


HScott Motorsports announced Thursday that it will relocate its headquarters to Mooresville, North Carolina, leaving its former South Carolina home in Spartanburg. The team also revealed that new driver Clint Bowyer will have a familiar car number for 2016.

Bowyer, who will make a one-year stop with HScott before shifting to replace owner/driver Tony Stewart at Stewart-Haas Racing, will drive the No. 15 Chevrolet this year in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. It’s a transposition for HScott, which inherited the No. 51 when it purchased the team from James Finch in 2013.

Bowyer used the No. 15 the last four seasons, his entire tenure with Michael WaltripRacing, which folded at the end of the 2015 campaign.

HScott — which also fields a Sprint Cup entry with driver Michael Annett — will set up shop at the former TriStar Motorsports location, a nearly 50,000-square-foot building in Mooresville. TriStar, a longtime multicar team in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, lists a new address on its website in Statesville, North Carolina, approximately 20 miles north of its former headquarters.
