Chase Purdy seemed to have his 2024 plans well in hand when he signed an extension with Kyle Busch Motorsports for 2024. Well, now Spire Motorsports bought out KBM and the future for Purdy became a bit more cloudy. Some assumed that Purdy already had a contract with the new Spire team for 2024, but, he recently put a tweet out with a pen followed by 2024. What does that mean?

What That Could Mean for Spire

What this likely means is that any contracts previously signed with KBM could potentially not come with the purchase of the company. This calls into question another driver that KBM had under contract, Nick Sanchez.

Nick Sanchez also signed on for 2024 with Rev Racing, which had a technical alliance with KBM. Does that alliance potentially not continue with Spire joining the fray? Ultimately, everything may indeed continue.

Purdy and Sanchez may maintain a similar relationship with Spire that they did with KBM. Maybe this is as simple as a contract restructuring for Purdy with the new ownership, and Sanchez could be going through a similar process. Regardless of what happens, it seems unlikely that Sanchez will move on from Rev Racing at least for now.

What This Could Mean for Chase Purdy

Again, this could be as simple as a contract restructuring with the new bosses. However, it is interesting that Purdy could have to make a new contract for 2024 should he race for Spire. It would make sense for Spire to stick with Chase Purdy.

Purdy just had his best season in his Truck Series career up to this point. He had two poles and a career-high in top-5s (3) and top-10s (11), but he failed to win a race which caused him to miss the Playoffs. Missing the Playoffs was a disappointment, but the season saw a lot of improvements.

On top of that, Spire could be the best ride available for him to take. Rides like ThorSport and Front Row Motorsports are still open, but that would require a manufacturer change. On top of that, Purdy had already signed with KBM in August, so, if he joined Silly Season, he joined it late.

However, he raced well enough to put himself on the map should he become a player in Silly Season. It will be interesting to see what this move means for Chase Purdy, but it does call into question whether or not there is something going on at Spire that we do not know.
