When it formed just over a month ago, the Race Team Alliance was comprised of nine of the largest powerful organizations on the NASCAR Sprint Cup level.

Wednesday, the RTA announced it has now doubled its membership to 18 full-time Sprint Cup organizations, covering 37 full-time teams.

“One of the early goals of the Race Team Alliance was to expand our membership, and after only a month in existence, we have accomplished that goal,” RTA chairman Rob Kauffman said in a media release.

“We now have virtually all the full-time teams participating,” Kauffman said. “I think the membership as a whole is enthusiastic to get to work on some of the other items on our agenda, in particular some of the cost areas and marketing opportunities we have already identified.”

The organization was formed as a not-for-profit “business league … to create an open forum for the teams to explore areas of common interest and to work collaboratively on initiatives to help preserve, promote, and grow the sport of stock car racing.”

Here’s the updated RTA membership roster:

BK Racing

Circle Sport

Front Row

Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates

Germain Racing

Go Green / FAS Lane

Hendrick Motorsports

HScott Motorsports

Joe Gibbs Racing

JTG Racing

Michael Waltrip Racing

Phil Parsons Racing

    This is going to get interesting. I love a good political battle.

      That one from 1978-2008 wasn’t too much fun.
