$0 Grant Enfinger will move to the No. 23 Chevrolet Silverado full-time, with Champion Power Equipment as his primary sponsor, according to the team. This agreement will last for two years, giving Enfinger some peace of mind.

They held a special press conference at Talladega Superspeedway, which was broadcast live on Facebook.
