A longtime veteran in NASCAR’s second tier, Harmon shared the #74 with various drivers in 2019, including Dan Corcoran, Bayley Currey, Nicolas Hammann, Tyler Matthews, Camden Murphy, Joe Nemechek, Aaron Quine, and Kyle Weatherman. Although Harmon ran the bulk of the Xfinity schedule at eighteen of thirty-three races, road course ringer Hammann scored the team’s best finish of fifteenth at Road America. The car finished thirty-fourth in the owner’s standings.

During the year, MHR also partnered with Rick Ware Racing to run the #17. Currey, Murphy, Nemechek, and Weatherman split time in the car with Josh Bilicki, Mark Meunier, and Robby Lyons. The #17 finished forty-fourth in the owner’s points with twenty-five total starts.

Unlike the #17, the #47 will be entirely operated by MHR. Drivers for the #47 and #74 have not been announced, but Harmon will likely continue his owner/driver role.
