“We’re in August people, we’re in August.” This is what NASCAR spotter Brett Griffin recently reminded everyone of amidst the growing uncertainty over the future of Kyle Busch.

The uncertainty which is growing denser by the day.

And now, what Griffin recently said on the post-Michigan episode of the Door Bumper Clear podcast, it will surely grow worse considering the potential names that could sprout from what he suggested.

The thing is, the spotter claimed that not only has JGR stepped off the pedal completely, but two big manufacturers have also entered the scene as he made a point about Busch not potentially having a seat next season.

“If you’ve got Chevrolet now entering the conversation to come after you, and you’ve got one Ford team that’s talking to you, and Gibbs has essentially, potentially stopped talking to you, you don’t have a lot of options if you’re Kyle Busch,” Griffin said.

“And you’re too damn good to not race a Cup car next year.”

That owner is none other than Denny Hamlin. Kraft described how Hamlin went out and got Kurt Busch when he needed him, followed by going out and getting Tyler Reddick in a similar fashion.

“If Kyle is available, Denny is going to kick the tires on that at least and see, ‘This is what you wanna do. I would give you a damn one-year deal for the money you said you would be willing to take,'” the spotter continued.
