Some companies remain in the mix; Phelps pegged the number at eight to 10. Others have fallen out, mostly as bad fits for one reason or another. A month after his interview, Phelps had little to offer in new information. The vetting process goes on and NASCAR maintains its optimism. Happy-face time, however, is growing short. In all likelihood, NASCAR will announce the Cup series title change in September or October.
That's when, Phelps noted, current agreements with Xfinity and Camping World were made for the second-level series and the trucks series, respectively. NASCAR's deal with Xfinity runs through 2024. Its Camping World agreement runs through 2022. Another key point raised by Phelps: There might be more than one sponsor. Don't be surprise to see a sponsor that is currently involved in NASCAR and one that is new to the sport. Sporting News / Motorsport
