It is worth noting that there is still a chance with Timmy Hill, but that may depend on whether or not Hill qualifies for the season-opening Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway in mid-February.
However, the two confirmed full-time entries without confirmed drivers will likely have multiple part-time drivers as opposed to full-time drivers, and they are at Rick Ware Racing and Spire Motorsports, two of the backmarker teams of the Cup Series.
With that in mind, all of the major confirmations ahead of the 2020 season have already been made.
Which was the most shocking?
Last year, 33 drivers competed full-time. Of those 33 drivers, 26 are set to return in 2020, with 23 set to continue driving for the same team and 22 set to continue driving the same car.
Eight drivers who did not compete full-time in 2019 are set to enter the series full-time in 2020, with six rookies set to replace six of the seven outgoing drivers and two other drivers set to drive full-time in cars that were driven by multiple drivers in 2019. One of the seven outgoing drivers was not replaced, with his former team simply downsizing by one car.
Let’s take a look at some of these moves.
