Will All Stewart-Haas Drivers Be Cup Racing in 2025?

Nascar Cup Series

Will all Stewart-Haas Racing drivers be in the NASCAR Cup Series in 2025?

Andrew Stoddard: Ryan Preece appeared to be the odd man out in the SHR drivers’ study groups, and I foresee him being the lone SHR driver on the outside looking in for a Cup Series in 2025. The Silly Season rumor mill has Chase Briscoe replacing Harrison Burton in the Wood Brothers Racing No. 21, while Noah Gragson and Josh Berry have both shown enough flashes of potential to warrant looks from Front Row Motorsports, RFK Racing or any other team that might land one of the SHR charters. Preece, on the other hand, has only one top five and three top 10s since joining SHR at the start of 2023, including just one top-10 finish so far this season, a ninth at Martinsville Speedway. Not to mention, at 33 years old, Preece is not exactly a young prospect anymore. When the Silly Season shakes out, Preece will likely be a NASCAR Xfinity Series or Craftsman Truck Series ride in 2025.

Gragson is rumored to be receiving interest from several teams, and he has displayed his skills at several points this year. Berry is beginning to find a rhythm, has support from key voices in the garage and will likely be staying in Cup. Briscoe also has enough connections and potential sponsorship to put him on the short list for a ride. With at least one opening at Front Row, a likely seat at Wood Brothers or the potential to jump to another manufacturer, there are options for all three.

Austin Bass: When the music stops and the dust settles, the driver without a seat will be Preece. The former Modified Tour superstar is a talented racer who capitalizes on opportunities when driving top-tier equipment. However, he’s not had that luxury during his time at SHR. Preece has done nothing memorable in the Cup Series and doesn’t have the bona fides, sponsorship dollars or fan support to retain his coveted spot on the grid with another team. Hopefully, Preece Lightning will land with a solid team in the Xfinity Series or Truck Series and compete for checkered flags and championships for the next decade.

Mike Neff: Yes, all four of them will have rides. There are already discussions about one or two drivers filling existing seats at other organizations. By the time the charters from…
