UPDATE Looks like Waltrip will run the Daytona 500 for Premium Motorsports, probably in the #55 Toyota. Images of the chassis were posted at Spraker Racing's Facebook page along with "Just finished rule updates and had NASCAR recertification done for Premium Motorsports Monster Energy Cup car driven by Michael Waltrip". Spraker Racing builds chassis for Premium Motorsports.

12/24/16 Two-time Daytona 500 winner Michael Waltrip was asked if he would be racing in the Daytona 500 this year (2017) and tweeted back: "Yes! In the @AaronsInc @ToyotaRacing #Camry".

No word on the team or car number but assumptions would be BK Racing as Waltrip ran their #83 Toyota in the 2016 Daytona 500, Premium Motorsports or TMG Motorsports who supposedly is changing to Toyota writes Jayski.
