Ty Dillon’s Cup Series future is currently in flux, with no official announcement on his plans for the 2024 season. The question becomes, where does Ty Dillon go in 2024, if anywhere?

Kaulig Racing

Bob Pockrass of Fox Sports name-dropped Ty Dillon as a candidate for Kaulig Racing’s number 16 car should A.J. Allmendinger move down to the Xfinity Series. Now this may not be the most inspiring pick for Kaulig, but Dillon does seem to bring some sponsorship with him. If he brings the funding, then why not bring him on for a season?

It’s also worth noting that this is statistically Ty Dillon’s worst season in the Cup Series. Given the fact that the #77 car is a new full-time team and Dillon is in his sixth full-time Cup Series season, how much blame could be put on the race team? Maybe moving to an up-and-coming race team could be the exact thing that Dillon needs.

Rick Ware Racing

Rick Ware Racing has yet to announce its second driver for 2024, and Ty Dillon could be an interesting candidate. Now, Rick Ware Racing could potentially have a charter issue for 2024, hence why they have not announced Justin Haley’s car number for 2024. The current #51 charter, which used to be the #15 charter, is currently on pace to potentially be in the bottom three for three seasons in a row.

This potentially puts that charter at risk of being revoked by NASCAR. If that indeed does happen, then does RWR go back to a one car team in 2024? If that does not happen, then RWR could get a reset with that charter, and why not bring in a veteran like Dillon to partner with a young guy like Haley?

Live Fast Motorsports

Live Fast Motorsports has yet to announce its plans for 2024. For 2023, they have used multiple drivers including Josh Bilicki, B.J. McLeod, and Sheldon Creed. Ty Dillon could be an option to take over that seat at least on a part-time basis for 2024.

While Dillon is a veteran driver, he has struggled with subpar equipment in 2023. With Live Fast in danger of losing a charter if they have a bad season in 2024, would they or Dillon want to take a risk on each other in 2024? It could be an interesting pairing, but would the performance be good enough for both sides?

Spire Motorsports

After all of that, it is not totally out of the question that Spire and Ty Dillon reunite in 2024. After all, they have only spent one year together. Is it worth it to give up on everything after only one season?

On top of that, the future of potentially their most desired replacement, Carson Hocevar, is still unclear. If Hocevar goes somewhere like Kaulig Racing, then where can Spire go for their next driver? Dillon could still be an option after all.

Not Racing in 2024

It is not out of the question that Dillon could be left without a ride in 2024. Not only has he struggled this year, but he only spent one year at Legacy Motor Club, then known as Petty GMS, the year prior. As a result, teams could be unwilling to take a chance on him.

It would be tough for Dillon, but that very well may be what happens. If these rides do not open up, then where can he realistically go?

The future for Dillon is very murky, and his future could go multiple different ways. Maybe we will have an answer for him in the near future.
