What’s Happening?

It may be hard to believe, but with the Clash at the Coliseum less than 2 months away, we are almost halfway through NASCAR’s offseason. However, plenty of seats remain open for one reason or another. Here are all of the best open seats that STILL remain in NASCAR Silly Season.

  • Unlike other sports, NASCAR free agency typically goes on throughout the season. Many seats are filled during the season, particularly the top rides. However, a few stay open into the offseason.
  • Typically, seats in the lower series and with smaller teams remain open well into the offseason. Such is the case this offseason as well.
  • Fans are always searching for the latest chatter surrounding NASCAR silly season. Fans love to speculate who could go where.

Cup Series: Kaulig Racing #16

With A.J. Allmendinger officially moving back to the Xfinity Series, the #16 car at Kaulig Racing is wide open. Ty Dillon was once the favorite, but Matt Weaver’s recent reports have called that into question. Bob Pockrass floated out the idea of an “All-Star Car” for that second Cup Series Kaulig car. This seat seems to be as open as open gets.

Cup Series: Rick Ware Racing Second Car

Justin Haley will drive one Rick Ware Racing car in 2024, but the second seat remains open. Recent rumors have suggested that it will once again be an “All-Star Car” for 2024. In 2023, RWR had drivers such as Jenson Button, Cole Custer, and Ryan Newman drive their cars.

Xfinity Series: Sam Hunt Racing #24/#26

Kaz Grala is moving on for 2024, and that opens up at least one seat at Sam Hunt Racing. Being the only other full-time Toyota Xfinity Series team aside from JGR, SHR is an important seat to Toyota.

Xfinity Series: AM Racing #25

Hailie Deegan is going to AM Racing to drive the #15 car in 2024, but, the team announced that they hope to run 2 cars in 2024. The #25 car remains open, and it will be interesting to see who could team up with Hailie Deegan.

Xfinity Series: B.J. McLeod Motorsports #78

With B.J. McLeod selling his Cup Series charter, this team will be interesting to watch in 2024. Anthony Alfredo has moved on to Our Motorsports in the 5 car, so, there will be a new driver as well. Maybe McLeod could take over some of the driving duties with his Cup Series slate cut down.

Truck Series: Hattori Racing Enterprises #16

Tyler Ankrum is moving on to McAnally-Hilgemann Racing in 2024. Hattori won a Championship with Brett Moffitt in 2018, but they have not won a race since 2021 with Austin Hill. Still, their pedigree makes this an interesting place for Truck Series free agents.

Truck Series: Rackley W.A.R. #25

Rackley W.A.R. may have an heir apparent in Dawson Sutton, but he is not old enough to run the full schedule in 2024. Rackley W.A.R. will have to figure something out, whether that is an All-Star Car that lets Sutton race on short tracks or another full-time driver.

Who will fill all of these seats in 2024? Will it be someone that we expect or someone completely unexpected?
