Tommy Baldwin Racing has named former Camping World Truck Series champion Mike Skinner and Patrick Carpentier to replace Scott Riggs in the #36 Toyota in the Sprint Cup Series, the team announced Monday.

Skinner will run the remainder of the NASCAR Sprint Cup schedule for Baldwin, except for during race weeks where Skinner is driving in non-companion Truck Series races. Skinner is driving a full Truck Series schedule for Randy Moss Motorsports.

Carpentier will fill in for Skinner when Truck Series commitments prevent him from driving in the Cup Series. Under an agreement already in place, Brian Simo will run the road course races for Baldwin, who formed his team during the most recent offseason.

Riggs and Baldwin will part ways after Monday's running of the 50th Coca-Cola 600 at Lowe's Motor Speedway.
