John Hunter Nemechek will move up to the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) next season, where he will share the driving duties in Chip Ganassi Racing’s No. 42 Chevrolet.

CGR is expected to field one full-time team in the NXS in 2018 with Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Kyle Larson and Nemechek combining for a majority of the races. Nemechek’s move to the NXS is not expected to mean the end of NEMCO Motorsports, however. The team still plans to compete in the Truck series next season and is in the process of securing sponsorship and another driver. Nemechek could also still do some races.

Richard Petty Motorsports will switch from Ford to Chevrolet next season as well as form an alliance with Richard Childress Racing, which will see RPM secure shop space on the RCR campus.

RPM majority owner Andrew Murstein said the move aligns two of the most successful organizations in NASCAR history. RPM finished 24th in the owner standings in 2017 and heads into 2018 with rookie driver Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr., who will replace Aric Almirola. Almirola will drive for Stewart-Haas Racing next year. Formerly a two-car team, RPM opted to leave its spacious shop in Mooresville, North Carolina, when its lease ran out after the 2017 season.-ESPN

Kasey Kahne spent much of his final trip to Las Vegas as a Hendrick Motorsports driver duly celebrating his time with the championship team and eagerly anticipating a big change in his career: A move to the single-car Leavine Family Racing operation for the 2018 season.

Kahne finished out his six-year, six-win tenure in the Hendrick No. 5 Chevrolet with a playoff run that ended in the Round of 16, but gave a glimpse of why this year’s Brickyard 400 winner has been a contender in NASCAR’s highest levels. It’s all been good preparation for a fresh start next year and Kahne said he’s already been to his new digs to meet his new team and start prepping the car for his LFR debut in the Feb. 18 Daytona 500.
