The NASCAR season has been one of turmoil for riders, as accomplished drivers such as Kurt Busch, Matt Kenseth and Kasey Kahne looking for 2018 rides, and Danica Patrick -- less accomplished, but tremendously popular -- possible on her way out too.
Now, add another name to the growing list of drivers who may needs a ride.
Aric Almirola. The word comes from Adam Stern of the Sports Business Journal, via Twitter.
The No. 43 for Ford Fusion for Richard Petty Motorsports currently belongs to the 33-year-old Almirola. Wallace subbed for Almirola for four races this season, and RPM was so impressed it's been looking for a second sponsor so it can run both Wallace and Almirola.
NESN Fuel also raised the possibility that RPM may not be strongly wedded to continuing its relationship with Almirola.
