On May 20, 2019, the team announced that it would expand to two cars for the Alsco 300 that weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Brandon Brown was announced as driver, and Vero was announced as sponsor.[4] Jeff Stankiewicz was later confirmed as crew chief.

Car No. 90 history

Brandon Brown driving the No. 90 at Richmond Raceway in 2017

On January 5, 2017, it was announced that Brown would attempt to run at least 10 races driving the No. 86 Camaro in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, starting with the season opener at Daytona. Adam Brenner was named the crew chief, and Coastal Carolina University was announced to be the primary sponsor for all but one of the races.[12] The team never entered the Daytona race, and Brandonbilt formed a partnership the following week with King Autosport to have Brown's ten races be in the No. 90 and having Mario Gosselin be the listed owner.[13] Brian Henderson drove for the team at Watkins Glen, finishing 33rd.[14]

On January 2, 2018, it was announced that Brown would return to the Xfinity Series and the 90 in 2018, mixing short tracks, intermediate tracks, and superspeedways.[11]

Camping World Truck Series

Truck No. 44 history

Although not officially part of the team, Brandonbilt announced that it would use the No. 44 of Martins Motorsports for "select races" in the 2017 season.[15] Brown DNQed at Daytona International Speedway and made the race at spring Martinsville race in the No. 44, Brown was scheduled to attempt also Charlotte, Eldora and fall Martinsville race,[16] but the future of the team was in question after Martins moved up to the Xfinity Series and shut down the No. 44 truck.[17] The team abandoned the No. 44 and went back to the No. 86.

Truck No. 86 history

The team debuted in 2014, running three races.[18] Brown turned in finishes of 25th at Iowa Speedway in his first Truck start,[19] 19th at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in his second start,[20] and 24th at Martinsville Speedway in his third.[21] He failed to turn in a lead lap finish, but finished all three races. In 2015, the team ran five races.[22] Brown failed to qualify for four others. An oil line failure caused the team's first failure to finish, in the Hyundai Construction Equipment 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.[23] Even with four races where the team did not qualify, Brown improved to a then-best finish of 14th at the Lucas Oil 200 at Dover International Speedway.[24] In the season's final race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Brown's truck stalled after two laps and retired with transmission problems.[25]

The team ran half the schedule in 2016,[26] and Brown finished fourth in the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 with funding from NCaseIt Sports Displays.[27] The team failed to finish its first race of the year in the Jacob Companies 200, when suspension troubles hampered the team's efforts.[28] Brown would not crack the top ten for the rest of the season, and finished last at Gateway Motorsports Park.[29] During 2016, Brandonbilt developed an alliance with Mike Harmon Racing, resulting in Tim Viens running one race for the team.[30]

The No. 86 returned to the track at Charlotte Motor Speedway in 2017 but failed to qualify.[31] The team signed Mason Diaz to drive the No. 86 at Martinsville Speedway.[32] Diaz made a splash during qualifying[33] and scored stage points in Stage One before a cut tire ended his hopes of a good run.[34]
