What’s Happening?

In the wake of Stewart-Haas Racing shutting down, each of the current SHR drivers became the ones to watch for this Silly Season. Chase Briscoe is the only one currently signed for 2024 as of this writing, but what about the driver of the No. 4, Josh Berry? Where will he go in 2025?

  • Josh Berry is in his first full-time season in the NASCAR Cup Series. He’s in a tight battle with Carson Hocevar for Rookie of the Year, and Berry has impressed so far this season. However, is it enough for another full-time Cup Series opportunity?
  • Crew chief Rodney Childers has also expressed interest in working with Berry beyond this year. However, it’s uncertain whether the two can continue to collaborate.
  • Fans are watching Josh Berry as closely as other drivers in Silly Season. However, no one has a full grasp on where he can go.

The Wood Brothers

Adam Stern reported that Josh Berry has “Held talks” with The Wood Brothers about driving for the team in 2024. It would keep Berry in the Cup Series with Ford, and the team has at least some funding from Motorcraft. There’s also the Team Penske alliance, which allows Berry to be aligned with a “Tier One” team.

The Wood Brothers have shown flashes of potential in recent years, making the Playoffs in 2017 with Ryan Blaney and 2020 with Matt DiBenedetto. Sure, it’s not a “Tier One” team, but Berry might be able to elevate this organization.

Front Row Motorsports

Front Row Motorsports is looking for two new drivers in 2025. With Michael McDowell gone and intentions to start a third team, SHR alums make great candidates for FRM. This “Tier One” Ford team has shown some promise in recent years.

While still a Cup Series rookie, Berry is a veteran of motorsports. He spent many years toiling in late models and offers a veteran-like presence, but he’s not quite a NASCAR veteran. He could be an interesting driver for this ride.

Rick Ware Racing

Rick Ware Racing has shown some promise this season, with Justin Haley racing full-time and recording the team’s first two non-superspeedway top-10s. Could Berry slot into the second seat and give RWR a second full-time driver? This could be an interesting driver lineup featuring the young Haley and the older Berry.

However, this ride would require a lot of funding. How much does Berry realistically have? That’s the question with this team.

Haas Factory Team

The Haas Factory team is being formed out of the ashes of Stewart-Haas Racing. With at least one Cup Series seat open, could Berry slot in? He could face tough competition from Cole Custer, 2023 Xfinity Series Champion, and funding could be an issue.

Berry might slot into the Xfinity Series with the team. However, if he has Cup Series offers on the table, it might be tough to move down to the Xfinity Series.

Kaulig Racing

Kaulig Racing is a wild card on this list. It could require some funding, and it would require Berry to switch manufacturers. If Berry is open to doing so, taking over the “All-Star Car” at Kaulig could be an interesting place for him.

However, Kaulig has had a struggling year with both cars outside of the top 30 in owner’s points at the halfway point of the season. Then again, the team won last season with A.J. Allmendinger at the Roval. Is the equipment good enough for Berry to succeed?
