[Kyle] Busch and [Martin] Truex are not signed for 2023 at Joe Gibbs Racing. And [Stewart-Haas Racing] is the one team with a known job opening, as Aric Almirola already announced that this is his final full-time year.

JGR owner Joe Gibbs said a week ago that he was confident the team would find sponsorship for Busch (Mars is leaving after this year) and retain him.

Truex‘s situation is nowhere near as tense. The 2017 Cup champion turns 42 later this year and must decide in the next couple of months whether he wants to continue as a full-time Cup driver. If he does, his sponsors are expected to stay with him.

Truex has said he plans to take all the time he can to make a decision, and it likely will come down to what he believes he can accomplish, as NASCAR has transitioned to the new Next Gen car this season.
