Jimmy Means Racing is a NASCAR team competing in the Xfinity Series, fielding the #52 Chevrolet for Joey Gase. They competed in the sport from the mid-1970s under the guidance of driver-owner Jimmy Means until 2005. The Winston Cup program in Means' history ran from the mid seventies to 1993. Means never found much luck in his cars, only recording 17 top-tens in his years. He had various other drivers drive his #52 and later #53 (second R & D cars) but none measured any success as well. Means' team showed up again in 2001, when they began racing in the Busch Series with a number of drivers. However, none of them was consistent and by 2005, the team was making its last run. After a flip on lap three of the race at Dover by Donnie Neuenberger, the team closed up shop. However they reappeared in 2007 at Daytona with Neuenberger. They ran a part time schedule with Brad Teague and Kevin Lepage running some races.
