    B&T Motorsports Parts Way With Towianski, Looking to Redevelop National Team for 2018

    B&T Motorsports earlier this week announced that driver Joe Towianski would not return to the team after 4+ seasons with the team. The team has already filled his vacant cup seat with rookie Jakub Smetana, but the National ride remains vacant. Owner Tim Kunkel has expressed interest in redeveloping the series lineup, and bringing in new drivers to contend for the National title in 2018. "We need a farm system and to get our drivers to contend for titles and not just wins for nothing."

    PM me if interested in the ride, only if you intend to drive for this series only.

    Zumwalt to return to National Series, Compete full-time for championship

    One of the winningest drivers in Cup series competition is stepping down to the National level to compete for a title. Zumwalt, the long time veteran cup driver, is coming off his final season of Cup competition and has now announced his plans to step down to the National Series to compete for the championship. Partnering with KM Racing, Zumwalt will be back behind the wheel of the #21 Ford full-time in 2018. No confirmed sponsors to this point, however Zumwalt did say he was very close to finalizing deals that would cover the full season.

    I hope to have a team chart and everything for the 2018 season setup sometime over the weekend. We'll also get claims for Dodge teams squared away this weekend.

    KM Racing signs rookie for #86 NNS ride in 2018.

    As announced earlier KM Racing will be running two full-time entries in the upcoming NNS series season. European rookie Hustin Jawkins gets the opportunity to show his talent in an American based racing series. Jawkins, who has been driving in several F3-Series in Europe during the last couple of years, will face his first oval races and full-time appereance in US-Stock Cars with KM Racing. After also participating in LMP2-class of ELMS-series in 2017, Jawkins declined any Formula 2 offers for 2018 leaving his longtime monoposto team Ledfoot Racing INC. for a try on American racing. Michael Ledfoot Sr., manager of Hustin Jawkins, went to Daytona for meeting team officials and came up with the #86 seat at KM Racing. "Hustin always had his mind set on moving over to US-Racing. We knew that we couldn't keep him racing formula cars in Europe forever. So we're glad our sponsor Europcar used their contacts with National Car Rental and KM Racing to give Hustin the chance he's always been looking for", Ledfoot explained during a radio broadcast.

    Hustin Jawkins' NNS Mustang will be sponsored by National Car Rental, Snickers and Alamo Car Rental.

    Zack, we've got Matt running in the Cup series for no points and not be eligible for ROTY. Does he count against us for the one slot, or since he's running for the NNS Championship, he's in one of the two remaining slots?

    So we can't have multiple Cup drivers splitting time in a single seat? If there were 50 users all clamoring for openings, that'd make sense. However, the field went from 41 cars at Miami in 2016 to 34 in 2017. Making changes should allow for more entries, not less.

    I was referring more so to the Dodge swap thing, but as for that rule, we only had 19 total drivers score points this past season in a 34-car field. The field was basically split half and half.

    Cup drivers can all split a single seat for no points, or halve the races with a non-Cup driver for a shared championship. I don't really want to see Cup drivers running full-time in two cars in a three-car team if we can absolutely help it.

    That makes sense - just don't want the series turning into a real-world CWTS with only 20-odd entries every week.

    KM Racing Looking for Two Part-Time Drivers to Pilot the 68

    Craigo Racing Inc. looking for drivers, Sponsors secured for 2018

    With the recent departures of Jakub Sementa and Bobby Farrell whom move up to Cup for other teams, and with owner/driver Jacob Craigo effectively retiring for the time being from National Series compeition to focus on his own Cup Series effort as well, this leaves all three seats for the CRI stable open headed into 2018. It is unknown if CRI will continue running the numbers 7, 48, and 62, or if any new entries into the team means new numbers for the team.

    Also announced was that Quaker State and DeviantArt at the very least will return for 2018. Whether they sponsor the same driver, or different drivers on the team is still up for debate. Drivers coming aboard can bring their own sponsors as long as they don't conflict with Quaker State (Motor Oil) or DeviantArt (Digital Art Social Media Website). It is rumored that Hewlett-Packard, a recently-signed sponsor of Craigo in the SRD Cup Series, will be a primary associate sponsor as well, although the team has not confirmed that rumor in either direction.

    B&T Motorsports Still Searching for Driver
    B&T Motorsports is still searching for another driver to slot into its 2018 lineup, but as of late the search has dried up according to owner Tim Kunkel. "It's been a slow process so far, we've had one inquire about the seat but that's about it. It's been very slim pickens this offseason." Kunkel is hoping to find a rookie for the team to go after the Drivers Title in 2018, if interested please PM!
