MOORESVILLE, N.C. (February 12, 2016) – HScott Motorsports announced today that it has reached agreement with Premium Motorsports for use of its Charter in 2016 to run the No. 46 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet driven by Michael Annett. This agreement has been accepted and approved by NASCAR.
“The No. 46 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet driven by Michael Annett will be locked into the field for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in 2016 thanks to an agreement HScott Motorsports reached with Premium Motorsports for a short term transfer of its Charter,” said team owner Harry Scott, Jr. “I want to thank Jay Robinson, owner of Premium Motorsports, for his collaborative approach and belief in HScott Motorsports.”
Earlier this week NASCAR and team owners came to a historic agreement for a NASCAR Charter System. Under the agreement HScott Motorsports was granted one Charter. That Charter will be used to field the No. 15 5-hour ENERGY Chevrolet driven by Clint Bowyer. The new system allows Charters to be transferred on a short term basis.
“The new Charter License structure is the result of monumental and unprecedented cooperation between NASCAR and the teams that will further advance the sport into the foreseeable future,” said Scott. “The Charter System provides equity and certainty necessary for owners to build a successful business plan and maintain the health of their investment that will benefit fans and sponsors.
