Drivers changing teams


Drivers with contracts ending in 2021 that have not made an  announcement about 2022 plans:

  • #6-Ryan Newman – Believed to have signed a three-year contract in 2019, expiring at the end of 2021. Keselowski’s move to Roush could push Newman out if he wants to continue racing full-time, but RFR has said they have offered Newman a part-time opportunity to remain with the team that he is still pondering.
  • #10-Aric Almirola – He is expected to return with Smithfield as the sponsor, but nothing has been announced yet.

Unknown Plans

  • #00-Quin Houff – StarCom Racing is shutting down.

New teams in 2022. These teams would prefer to secure a charter if possible.

  • GMS Racing announced that it will run Cup in 2022. They will run full time with Ty Dillon.
  • Kaulig Racing has purchase two charters and will run two-full time teams. Justin Haley will run one of the cars full-time. Team has announced that A.J. Allmendinger will run a partial schedule, but that could be with a third team.  Another driver could be in the second team car full-time if sponsorship is secured.
  • 23XI Racing will expand to two teams. Kurt Busch will be the driver. They obtained a charter from StarCom Racing.
  • Trackhouse Racing has purchased Chip Ganassi Racing and will operate two teams. Suarez and Chastain will drive the cars.
  • JR Motorsports considered the possibility of adding a Cup team, but says the cost of a charter is a stumbling block. They are unlikely to enter Cup before 2023, if they decide to do so.

Teams that will not compete in 2022

  • Chip Ganassi Racing has sold to Trackhouse Racing. Trackhouse will continue to run the #1 (with Ross Chastain) in addition to the #99 with Suarez.
  • While nothing is official, Rick Ware says he’s currently planning on running 3 full-time teams in 2022 and will likely lease one charter.
