NASCAR Silly Season Revving at Full Speed

NASCAR Silly Season Revving at Full Speed

Every week, it seems like there’s a new development in Silly Season for 2019.

Just because the racing has passed, there is no shortage of NASCAR News. Below is some of the buzz via Twitter.

Kurt Busch and Monster Energy announced that Kurt will pilot the No. 1 for Chip Ganassi Racing in 2019. (No word where Jamie McMurray will land – however, Associated Press has reported that Chip Ganassi has offered McMurray driver a contract for just for the 2019 Daytona 500 and then a leadership position with the team.)

Noah Gragson won the prestigious 2018 Snowball Derby but not the heart of the trophy girl in victory lane. The driver attempted a kiss but was initially rejected. (It is rumored that the driver received his kiss and the model’s phone number later)

Carl Dakes won the 2018 Betty Jane France Humanitarian Award. Dakes is a longtime volunteer with the Maryland-based ‘Believe In Tomorrow’ Children’s Foundation.

DGR-Crosley announced that they have added Natalie Decker to their driver development program for the 2019 season. Decker will run a select number of NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series races as well as a combination of NASCAR K&N Pro Series and ARCA Racing Series events.

NASCAR's Most Popular Driver Award is awarded to the most popular NASCAR driver in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, Xfinity Series, and Camping World Truck Series every year since 1956.

Bob Pockrass announced this will be his last season – he will not be covering motorsports for ESPN in 2019.
