January 08, 2014, Staff report, NASCAR.com
Blaney told the website that he'll work with crew chief Peter Sospenzo and that the team will use Roush Yates engines.
Blaney, a former champion in various forms of sprint car racing, has four top-five finishes and two poles in 466 career Sprint Cup starts. The 51-year-old veteran competed the last three seasons for Tommy Baldwin Racing with a best finish of third place at Talladega Superspeedway in October 2011.
Sospenzo, a three-time winner as a crew chief in NASCAR's top series, was atop the pit box for 15 Sprint Cup races last season, the majority for team owner Mark Smith's No. 19 car. He was also crew chief for the last NASCAR race driven by Jason Leffler, who died after a sprint car racing crash last June.
Humphrey fielded NASCAR Nationwide Series entries in 23 races in 2010, with David Gilliland and Chase Miller as drivers. This season's efforts will mark Humphrey's first foray into NASCAR's premier division.
