Kurt Busch is unsigned

Busch and Stewart-Haas have been saying for months they want a reunion inn the No. 41, but there's a reported hang up over money. There's been added intrigue as Dale Jarrett speculated that Matt Kenseth could reverse his retirement decision and take the seat if Busch and SH can't reach and agreement.

Who's driving the No. 27?

Next to the No. 41, the No, 27 of Richard Childress Racing is the biggest seat left. It became open when Paul Menard left for Wood Brothers Racing.

Landon Cassill is gone. David Ragan is unsigned. There are rumors that Michael McDowell may end up here.


What car will Bubba Wallace drive?

Richard Petty Motorsports still hasn't decided whether its driving Ford or Chevy next season.

Who gets the charters?
