Turner announced that Sweet will be in the 38 full time next year, I think.

Is Stenhouse really running the 17? Last I heard RFR was going to bring the 6 out of mothballs for him.

I think it got officially announced at Dover that he was in the #17.

Expect RPM to officially sign both Ambrose and Almirola for next year sometime during the week.. At the moment Danica will be running part-time Nationwide in the #7, that may change with Regan Smith. JTG Daughtey might bring in a 2nd car for David Reuitmann, don't know the number, might be something like 46, 57, or 74. Stenhouse Jr, and Patrick are running for ROTY.

Almirola will be back at Petty I'm sure.
Front Row will stay the same because Front Row
Blaney will get the Baldwin ride
I think Reutimann will pick up the Daughterly ride
BK stays the same

On the Nationwide side...

Ty will pick up the two, Since Sadler for sure wants out.
33 will probably be the same Menard/Harvick combo it has been
4 team will probably be the same as this year if the team doesn't close down before hand
Regan Smith is probably getting the Danica mobile
Gibbs will probably have Sadler in the 18 and Wallace in the 11...Might be the other way around but that's for sure who's going to be at the team next year.
Penske will be brain-dead if he doesnt to pick up Hornish again in the #12. Ryan Blaney is most likely getting the #22.
Rick Ware will probably be Ali/Hill combo...Although the possibility of Malsam might change that.
Buescher will get the 30...Most likely full-time as i think they're going to try one more year with Piquet in Trucks (More a less a championship attempt)
Key team will be the same combo
70 team hopefully make an attempt at full-time but who knows.

Just so everyone Knows, Brian Scott seems pretty sure that he won't be back in the 11 car next year.

I'd like to see Johanna Long back in the 70 car in Nationwide full-time next year, she has impressed some people in some of her races this year. Also I think it's quite likely that David Reutimanm could take over the 47 car, because I think Labonte might retire soon. If not next year or so.

So it seems like in cup the only open rides are the Front Row cars.
Sadler, I think, will definatley be in the 11 with Scott gone.

Auto Action (Australian Motorsporting Magazine) Facebook page wrote:IN THIS WEEK’S ISSUE: In an AA exclusive, we reveal how FPR courted Aussie NASCAR star Marcos Ambrose for its 2013 four-car team. Plus, opinions divided over the Gold Coast 600 carnage while FPR considers team orders for the rest of the year. Also, AA’s in-depth feature on the greatest teams to ever race in the ATCC/V8 Supercars… you’ll be surprised at the results. And after almost three seasons in F1, we analyse how the not-so-new teams – HRT, Caterham and Marussia – are performing. Are they improving? Or is their involvement pointless? Plus much more… OUT NOW! Also available on iPad and Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablet.
I might get this tomorrow and put up the full article.

Well on JRM's Facebook page it showed the 88... Dale is expected to run 2 races

Don't know what this means for Cole Whitt... hopefully he will return in 2013

EDIT Never mind he will have Danica's ride
