Who has NASCAR charters? Teams, car owners with charters in 2021

The NASCAR charter system began in 2016, and teams that own charters are allowed to compete in every NASCAR Cup Series points-paying race (and thus are guaranteed to earn a portion of the purse). There are 36 charters that are owned by teams. Teams may sell their charters to other owners or transfer them to another team for a set amount of time.

With the NASCAR field set at 40 cars for Cup Series races, this means 36 charter teams are joined by a maximum of four open teams that must qualify to compete in any given race.
