Christopher Bell may be in hot water with his boss Joe Gibbs. On Friday during a press conference, Bell let something slip at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in London, New Hampshire.

As Bell was meeting with the media, he said that Chase was going in the No. 19 car. Joe Gibbs Racing has yet to confirm the news.

Initially after revealing the news, Bell tried to walk back the statement. Then he said “whoever gets the ride.”

The news may be coming soon though. A lot of silly season news has already come out … in June.

Martin Truex Jr. recently announced that he was leaving as a full time driver. This gives Joe Gibbs Racing the opportunity to hire Chase Briscoe.

Some NASCAR pundits believe that Truex Jr. was forced out, even though he has been considering retirement for some time now. Almost immediately after Truex Jr. dropped his news, Briscoe was linked to the ride, according to sources.

Truex Jr. said at his full time retirement statement that he and JGR will still work together. Most likely, this will be on a limited ride.

Briscoe is now a free agent for the 2025 season. Stewart-Haas Racing had announced that they were shutting down in May.

On Thursday, Stewart-Haas Racing co-owner Gene Haas announced that he would field one NASCAR Cup Series team. The Haas Factory Team is also expected to field two NASCAR Xfinity Series teams.

The most logical choice for the Haas Cup Series driver is Cole Custer, according to sources. The former Cup Series driver — who won the Xfinity Series last season — is already sponsored by Haas Automation.

Briscoe and the three other Stewart-Haas Racing drivers are looking for rides.

Josh Berry, Noah Gragson, and Ryan Preece have no plans announced yet.
