This afternoon during the NASCAR Media Tour in Charlotte, Wood Bros. team co-owner Eddie Wood confirmed that its planned 2015 Sprint Cup schedule has been pushed to 18 races thanks to the tentative addition of six more events.

Our normal commitment is with Ford Motor Company and their Motorcraft and Quick Lane brands, and we’re gonna run our 12 races like we’ve been doing for the last few years," Eddie Wood said. "But we’re excited to say that we’ve been working really hard through our [technical] alliance with Team Penske, and we’ve tentatively added six races to our schedule. You want to race every week, and it kills you when you’re not there. We’re really thankful that we’re able to do that." The decision means more seat time for the team’s new driver, Ryan Blaney, who will also run part-time this year for both Penske in the XFINITY Series and Brad Keselowski Racing in the Camping World Truck Series.
