Nationwide Series Rumors

Post by Alpineopossum on Fri Sep 07, 2012 4:01 pm

There has been a bit of news on this.
RCR has booted Elliott Sadler and he is now looking for a ride.
Logano is headed to Penske in Cup...
So I think it may be time to start a silly season thread

2 - Ty Dillon or Kevin Harvick or Paul Menard
3 - Austin Dillon
33 - Paul Menard / Kevin Harvick / Brenden Gaughan
Sadler has been sacked from the #2 car, so there are a few options here. 1) Ty Dillon will move up to Nationwide and take over the #2. 2) the 2 car will simply disappear or 3) The 2 car will be the same as the 33, with a rotating cast of RCR drivers. Also there is a chance that 4) the #2 car could be a permanent Nationwide ride for a bushwhacker.

6 - Trevor Bayne or Ricky Stenhouse or Travis Pastrada
I would imagine that Bayne or Pastrada will run the 6 unless Stenhouse sticks around for a while. I guess there could be a second car for any combination of Bayne, Edwards, Pastrada, or Stenhouse.

7 - Dale Earnhardt Jr or ???
88 - Cole Whitt
Danica is going to Cup. Not sure if the 7 car will be full time. It probably will.

Tri Star:
10 - Jeff Green
14 - Eric McClure
19 - Tayler Malsem
44 - Mike Bliss
I don't imagine any changes here. Green has been with the team to (mostly) start and park, so I doubt he will go anywhere. McClure and Malsem both have big sponsorships tied to them, and Bliss is having a great year, so Tri-Star will try to hold on to him.

11 - Brian Scott
18 - Denny Hamlin or Matt Kenseth
20 - Elliott Sadler or Darrell Wallace
Sadler could end up here. I don't know if it would be sharing a car or full time, but I think it would be full time if Gibbs has the cash. There is a possibility for a forth car, but that seems like a long shot. Logano is gone BTW.

12 - Sam Hornish or Joey Logano
22 - Brad Keselowski or Ryan Blaney or Joey Logano
Logano will probably be in the Nationwide Series in some form. Sadly, this may mean trouble for Sam Hornish. Ryan Blaney is in the mix too.

Rick Ware Racing:
15 - *
41 - *
71 - *
75 - *
Team will have a mixture of Timmy Hill, Blake Koch, Carl Long, Scott Riggs, etc. all randomly switching car numbers at short notice

23 - Robert Richardson and / or Jamie Dick
Richardson and Dick might be back.

SR2 / Resni:
24 - pay drivers
This team is basically a rent a ride program

Turner Motorsports:
30 - James Buescher or Nelson Piquet or Steve Arpin or Miguel Paludo
31 - Justin Allgiar
38 - Kasey Kahne and / or Brad Sweet
I don't know of any changes

Go Green Racing:
39 - pay drivers
These guys have basically become a rent a ride

The Motorsports Group
40 - Erik Darnell or ???
42 - Josh Wise or ???
46 - Matthew DiBennendetto or ???
47 - Scott Speed or ???
Curtis Key's start and park armada will unfortunately be back

Richard Petty Motorsports
43 - Michael Annett - Pilot / Flying J
Annett brings sponsorship, so he'll be back

50 - TJ Bell or ???

51 - Jeremy Clements

52 - pay drivers

54 - Kyle Busch and / or Kurt Busch
no changes expected.

Whatever the team Johanna Long drives for (I can't remember)
70 - Johanna Long

74 - Mike Harmon?

81 - Jason Bowles
82 - Blake Koch or ???
Maybe Blake Koch will end up here.

87 - Joe Nemechek

Racing for Jesus:
89 - Morgan Shepard

98 - Reed Sorenson or Scott Wimmer
Sorenson might return. The reason Wimmer is there is because he supposedly is putting together a big sponsor package

99 - Ryan Truex or John Wreck- I mean Wes- Townley or Kenny Wallace
Looks like Pastrada is Roush-bound.

08 - pay drivers?

I'm pretty sure I made some errors. I'll correct them.
