If 23XI Racing buy a second charter for the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season, here are three possible teams from which they could purchase it.

23XI Racing have long discussed expanding from one car to two for their second season in the NASCAR Cup Series next year, and they confirmed that expansion this past summer.

Bubba Wallace is set to return behind the wheel of the #23 Toyota, and Kurt Busch is set to join 23XI Racing and pilot the #45 Toyota alongside him in 2022.

But one thing was not confirmed: a second charter.

As of now, the #45 Toyota is listed a full-time, non-chartered (open) entry, much like the #37 Chevrolet for JTG Daugherty Racing this year. But the goal for the Denny Hamlin and Michael Jordan-owned team is still to purchase a second charter.

From where might they obtain one? Here are three possible sellers.

Possible charter sellers: No. 3 – StarCom Racing

We know that StarCom Racing are sellers already; we just don’t know who the buyer is. More than likely, this isn’t where 23XI Racing will find a second charter, as it has been rumored that Spire Motorsports have purchased the charter that StarCom Racing currently use to field the #00 Chevrolet for Quin Houff. StarCom Racing plan to shut down after 2021.

Spire Motorsports sold two of their current three charters, including the one they lease out to Trackhouse Racing Team, to Kaulig Racing for next year. Already operating as a two-car team, it would make sense for them to purchase what would be a second charter for 2022.

But Spire Motorsports have said that they do not currently have anything to announce, so it’s a possibility for 23XI Racing until confirmed otherwise.
