Ford Mustang GT
Drew Blickensderfer
Aric Almirola will retire at the end of the 2022 season. Smithfield has been rumored to leave the sport for a couple of years, and with the departure of Almirola ending a partnership for 11 years, it seems like this is the perfect time for them to leave if they plan to do so. Ryan Preece became a development driver for Stewart-Hass Racing in 2022 and has already been rumored to take over this seat for the 2023 season, however, Preece said at Dover in May 2023 that there have been no discussions about being in this ride. It is possible to see Stewart-Hass Racing scale back to a three-car team.
