Looks like Robby Lyons has began working with Premium Motorsports. Expect him in the 27 for a few races.

Looks like Suarez and Gaunt Bros. are making a deal to run full time this year!

Also, James Davison said his plan is to "run the Daytona 500 in a non-chartered car with an existing small team" and since their deal with Rick Ware racing fell apart, it looks like he's likely gonna be running for Premium.

From the side, that thing is a tank.

From the front, quite tasty.

Looks like Rick Ware is gonna field four cars at Daytona; the 51, 52 53/36, and the 54.

As unfortunate as it may be, the hot rumor right now is that Natalie Decker is going to be the driver of the 54.

That's a bit too early for her.

Agreed. But i see more of these young drivers entering the Daytona 500 too early.

I wonder what the over/under would be on her making the field if indeed the rumor is true...looks like four drivers would be flipping burgers if nobody else enters.

I’d like to know the over/under on all 4 RWR cars missing the field, no way that team would make races like they do if there were DNQs for every race. That being said I would presume all of their chartered teams (51,52,53) would be auto in based off points from last year. Ah I still remember when full time teams went home for the 500.

I think chartered teams are locked into every race. The 36, 51, and 52 are going to be in no sweat. The 54 however has to race in.

Double J JJ Yeley will be driving the 54 car at the Daytona 500.

Not even one race into 2020 and Rick Ware still can't keep one driver in the same car.

Brendan Gaughan has announced officially he will retire after he runs his 4 races this season. Known for his big flip last year and one of the most descriptive interviews of all time.

Brendan has ran the 62 almost his entire career, do you think Beard Motorsports will change their car number when they bring in the new kids?
