Stewart-Haas Racing has a new replacement for Cole Custer and while they could’ve had someone like Kyle Busch, they went with Ryan Preece instead.
“Like if I’m Stewart-Haas and I look at this driver change, I don’t understand why you didn’t go after a Kyle Bush. Or I know you were in a unique situation given your contract. But after a Tyler Reddick, like, if you want an ‘A’ guy in your car with this team historically has, i.e. had Kurt Bush. Like, Why are we, why are we in this situation?”
“But Ryan Preece has four more starts in Cup than Cole Custer does. So 115 total starts. He has two top fives and nine top tens. Now I realize he hasn’t been in great stuff. But again, if we’re looking at this on paper. There ain’t a big upgrade. It’s not like you went from a ‘C’ guy to an ‘A’ guy. You went from a ‘C’ guy to a ‘C’ guy with potential.“
SHR missed a major opportunity to sign Kyle Busch earlier this year before he signed the deal with Richard Childress Racing.
