What’s Happening?

In a year filled with struggles for Niece Motorsports, Kaden Honeycutt has been a consistently good driver in limited action for the team. Is his performance enough to move into a more permanent ride in 2025? Here are some teams he could end up with.

  • Kaden Honeycutt has bounced around the lower series in part-time rides over the past few seasons. This season has been his best in any NASCAR series, with a career-high four top-10s in five races.
  • There are plenty of seats for Honeycutt to watch out for. However, many other things must be considered when determining whether he can compete full-time.
  • Fans are intrigued by Honeycutt’s success in the Truck Series. However, that’s not all that matters when considering where he could race higher up the ladder.

Niece Motorsports (Trucks)

It would make sense for Honeycutt to stick with Niece Motorsports for 2025. He’s done well with the team, and a seat could open up for him given how much Bayley Currey and Matt Mills have struggled with the team. However, does Honeycutt have the funding?

That’s the question for pretty much every NASCAR driver, and Honeycutt still races only part-time. We will see how much of a hurdle that is for Honeycutt at this level.

JR Motorsports (Xfinity)

This would be a big time opportunity for Honeycutt if it comes about. This could be a part-time opportunity in the No. 88 car, or a full-time opportunity if the right seat opens up. Funding might be a question, but so is the seat opening up.

Currently JRM has longtime stalwart Justin Allgaier, young drivers Sam Mayer and Sammy Smith, and series veteran Brandon Jones. It’s uncertain if any of thee drivers will leave after 2024, and the part-time No. 88 car has a lot of competition for it this season. Is the opportunity there for Honeycutt?

McAnally-Hilgemann Racing (Trucks)

McAnally-Hilgemann Racing currently houses the Truck Series points leader, Christian Eckes. It would be a great opportunity for a Chevrolet team, and a team that can win a Championship and consistently competes for wins.

Again, funding and the right opportunity opening up have to be considered. The No. 91 “All-Star Car” might open up, but that’s not a guarantee.

Haas Factory Team (Xfinity)

Haas Factory Team is being formed out of the ashes of Stewart-Haas Racing. The new team should have solid equipment given that SHR driver Cole Custer won the 2023 Xfinity Series Championship. The opportunity is there for Honeycutt if he can put togehter the funding.

However, it is still a different team than the current SHR. The new team might not pan out quite like the current team does.

Spire Motorsports (Trucks)

Another Chevy Truck Series team is Spire Motorsports. While relatively new to the Truck Series, they already are competing for wins on a consistent basis. This could be a great place for Honeycutt, especially given their direct line to the Cup Series.

However, would this be the best opportunity for Honeycutt? Niece is already a place he is competing up front at, and he may not need that big of a change.
