Just a hunch... Mattie D would be a great fit at Hendrick though. Be good to see him in a Chevy.

The Larson theory fits here. But it means that Ally said no. And then hinges on Hendrick having another sponsor lined up that says Yes.

Exactly... I reckon outside of Gene Haas self sponsoring Hendrick would be the guy to make it work.

Suarez has picked up a ride. Trackhouse Racing, which seems to be owned by former(?) driver Justin Marks.



Chevy.. Don't know if they have an alliance with anyone or not.
Childress alliance... interesting that Tye Dillon is not part of the equation.

All the SJWs are waiting in the wings to blast social media if Larson gets a ride.

Matty D being without a contract just seems crazy to me.

Who are they going to get to drive that car that's any better than him? I'd say he's the top free agent out there, all things considered. Kyle Larson is likely the better driver, but there's the baggage that comes with that for the moment.


Suarez, Lajoie and Jones are the others that are available right now.. And I wouldn't say any of them are an upgrade over DiBennedetto.


All three are talented, but I wouldn't give up the year of experience with DiBennedetto to hire one of them. It's not like an in-his-prime Jimmy Johnson is available.
Well looks like hes good for at least one more year....

Penske will keep Cindrick down for another year with select cup races.
