Stanton Barrett Motorsports is a NASCAR Nationwide Series team owned by driver and Hollywood stuntman Stanton Barrett. Currently, it fields the #31 Grandstay.net Chevrolet Monte Carlo driven by Kenny Hendrick.

The team began in 2002 as Red Racing in the NASCAR Busch Series fielding the #91 Bojangles'/Odoban Ford. The team ran twelve races that year with a top finish of 21st at Nashville and Charlotte. The team returned again in 2003 after Stanton's release from Roush Racing for seven races and ran various manufacturers. The team would only end up finishing one race and that would be in the 30th position at Charlotte. For the 2004 season the team returned to the Busch Series as Stanton Barrett Racing for 16 races. The team ran Pontiac's and Chevrolet's throughout the season and received most of the sponsorship from AmericInn Lodging Systems. At the Meijer 300 the team fielded two cars, one for Shawna Robinson and one for Stanton Barrett, however only Barrett would qualify for the race. SBR would have a best finish of 18th at both the Milwaukee Mile and Richmond.

Stanton Barrett started his own Cup team in 2005 following his release from Front Row Motorsports. The team made four races of the seven races it attempted with his best finish being a 41st at Bristol Motor Speedway in August. In the 2006 season, SBM attempted 15 and made six races with a best finish of 33rd at Phoenix. The team ended the season with sponsorship from QualityMetric though a partnership with Ware Racing. After making one Busch race in 2006, the team made a limited schedule in 2007, with Barrett making fifteen races in the #30 Chevrolet and getting a best finish of seventeenth three times. Danny O'Quinn and Jeff Fuller made one-race attempts for Barrett as well.

In 2008, Barrett began running the #30 for Stanton Barrett Motorsports, and used the #31 as a companion car for the team. Hendrick made the most starts in the car, while Fuller and Shane Huffman also made brief appearances in the car. The team merged with Ware Racing Enterprises at the end of the year.
