Owner Michael Waltrip says his goal is to run the #99 Michael Waltrip Racing Nationwide Series team in all 35 races, but there's a chance the team could be limited to 27 races this season.
Waltrip said the team has sponsorship for 26 races - 14 for himself and twelve for Scott Speed. Waltrip also will run the April standalone race at Nashville Superspeedway, with or without a sponsor.
If sponsorship isn't found for the remaining eight events, the #99 won't run, he said.
“We're in the business to race these Cup cars,” Waltrip said. “[The Nationwide team] just supports that business.
“If there isn't a sponsor on it, then it won't go anywhere because it costs us money, and we don't gain anything on it.”
