The RFK Racing NASCAR Cup Series team hinted that they have a significant announcement to make this Wednesday, January 11.

As the start of the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season nears, more and more teams are shoring up the details of their lineups and related plans for the upcoming 36-race campaign.

The offseason between the 2022 and 2023 seasons is already more than two months old, and the season is unofficially scheduled to get underway in less than one month, with the Busch Light Clash scheduled to take place at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Sunday, February 5.

The season is officially scheduled to begin two weeks later on Sunday, February 19 with the 65th annual Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway.

Add RFK Racing to the list of Cup Series teams that still have something important to confirm.

RFK Racing told fans on social media on Tuesday afternoon that they have “big news” coming on Wednesday, January 11.

They proceeded to refer to the news as a “super cool, special, important announcement”, sharing a lighthearted meme poking fun at the fact that most teams bill their pending big news the same way nowadays.

Interestingly enough, RFK Racing aren’t the first team to indicate that they have a big announcement to make on Wednesday, January 11.

Earlier this week, Petty GMS Motorsports shared that they too have some important news coming on that date, fueling speculation that has been persistent ever since Jimmie Johnson’s NASCAR return was announced.

As for what we know about RFK Racing, Brad Keselowski and Chris Buescher are both set to return next year.

Keselowski set for his second year behind the wheel of the No. 6 Ford since leaving Team Penske and joining the team as a driver and part owner last year, while Buescher is set to for his fourth year behind the wheel of the No. 17 Ford after coming over from JTG Daugherty Racing in 2020.

Crew chiefs haven’t been announced yet for either driver, however. Matt McCall was Keselowski’s crew chief in 2022, while Scott Graves was Buescher’s.
