With the re-signing of Corey LaJoie to Go Fas Racing,
Front Row Motorsports is about the last prominent Cup teams to yet announce its driver lineup for 2020.
Front Row Motorsports:
It is speculated that John Hunter Nemechek and Michael McDowell will be the 2 drivers at FRM. Currently FRM has 3 Charters but with Matt Tifft being sidelined due to health reasons it is undetermined if they will field 3 entries or lease out their 3rd Charter in 2020.
In 2019 Premium Motorsports field the #15 and #27 for multiple drivers that included Ross Chastain, Reed Sorenson, Ryan Sieg, Joe Nemechek and Casey Mears (Daytona 500 in collaboration with Germain Racing).
The team has not announced any drivers for 2020 but we expect Ross Chastain to run a majority of the Cup races when it doesn’t conflict with his new Full Time Xfinty Team, #10 Kaulig Racing. Reed Sorenson has been with Premium Motorsports for several years part time and we expect him to return in 2020.

Rick Ware Racing:
RWR fielded 2 Full Time Entries and 2 to 3 part time entries during the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series with multiple drivers in the #51, #52, #53 and #54. Rick Ware Racing has announced they will run 3 Full Time Cup Series cars in 2020 withJJ Yeley being the only driver announced for the team so far.

Spire Motorsports is a interesting team as they are in partnership with Premium Motorsports and work out of the same shop. The #77 more or less is another Premium Motorsports entry. The team was able to score a victory in the 2019 season at the July Daytona race with Justin Hayley behind the wheel. Spire Motorsports also had Quin Houff (who has signed with StarCom Racing for 2020), Reed Sorenson Like Premium Motorsports, no drivers have been announced or rumored for 2020 yet.
