What’s Happening?

Last offseason, Justin Haley signed a multi-year contract with Rick Ware Racing to drive the No. 51 car. This was an unexpected move, but one that’s paid dividends, with RWR showing significant improvement. However, Haley’s most recent comments to Jordan Bianchi cast some doubt on the future. Where could Haley go?

I like what Rick’s doing, and they’ve been great to me and everything, but obviously, there’s a lot of opportunities on the board right now. So, you have to have those discussions to just be in the game.

  • Justin Haley has enjoyed a solid season for Rick Ware Racing in 2024. His 9th-place finish at Darlington was the best finish an RWR driver has ever recorded on a non-superspeedway.
  • However, RWR is still well behind most of the field regarding speed. Haley’s options for 2024 might be limited, but they do exist. They all could be better than RWR is, at least right now.
  • Fans have been impressed by Justin Haley’s 2024 season so far. However, is he doing enough to attract the attention of a bigger team?

Rick Ware Racing

This is probably the most likely scenario since Haley signed a multi-year contract with RWR last year. After this, each of the rides we mention has stiff competition, which could keep Haley from going for them. On top of that, would teams be willing to buy Haley out of his contract?

However, Haley’s stock has risen thanks to his performance at RWR this year. With that in his back pocket, he should attract the interest of other teams at some point.

Front Row Motorsports

Front Row Motorsports is wide open as a team with an open seat thanks to Michael McDowell leaving and being active in the charter market. Should SHR sell all four charters, it is an attractive potential landing spot for all of the SHR drivers, and that’s what could keep Haley from this ride. He will have a lot of drivers to fight with for this seat.

However, this would be a big move for Haley. He’d join a Tier One Ford team, which would give him some of the best equipment he’s ever had. If the opportunity comes across his doorstep, Haley would almost certainly go for it.

The Wood Brothers

Harrison Burton leaving The Wood Brothers would not surprise anyone who’s paid any attention to NASCAR recently. This again opens up a Ford seat for someone like Haley, but it’s not a tier-one seat like Front Row. Frankly, this would be a lateral move at best for Haley.

Haley is currently higher in the points standings than Burton, and The Wood Brothers and RWR both have alliances with tier One Ford teams. The Wood Brothers is with Team Penske, and RWR is with RFK Racing. It could be an option, but, it wouldn’t be an upgrade.
