About Biagi-DenBeste Racing
Biagi-DenBeste Racing began as a NASCAR Bush Series team. The team debuted in 2001 at the Auto Club 300, qualifying 41st and finishing 31st. The team made eight starts total that season, with the best finish, a tenth, at Richmond International Raceway. The team returned in 2002, running seventeen races.

Despite missing one race the team finished thirteenth in points that year. The following season, Biagi switched from Chevrolets to Fords, and at the Winn-Dixie 250, took the lead on the last lap to score Biagi's first career Busch victory. The team led eighteen laps the following week at Chicagoland Speedway, but ran out of fuel on the last lap, costing the victory. After posting three more top-ten’s, the team finished seventeenth in points.
In 2005, Biagi formed a partnership with Chip Ganassi Racing for the 2006 season. DenBeste Transportation Company came on board as a partner in 2006. Bill and Lori DenBeste established DenBeste Transportation Inc. in 1988.
