Natalie Decker Makes Huge Announcement for Fans with 2021 NASCAR Contract Signing

By Dhruv George

Earlier on Twitter, Natalie Decker announced that she could be back in the NASCAR fray. Of course, she played it coy by blurring out any logos.

One has to wonder whether she will be in the Truck or Xfinity Series. Admittedly, a Cup drive would be a little farfetched, as she does not have much experience in the arena.

Owing to this, another Truck or promotion to Xfinity seems more realistic. Of course, Decker has promised that more details will emerge in the coming days. However, some reports suggest that Natalie Decker is in the midst of ongoing discussions with a few Xfinity Series teams.

Now, this begs the question, which team will she land a seat in? First and foremost, the Big Machine Racing team is searching for a driver in their #48 car alongside Jade Buford.

Additionally, RSS Racing with Reaume Brothers Racing is on the hunt for a candidate for their #23 car. Even the Rick Ware Racing team has 2 slots available for her.

What next for Natalie Decker?
It is also worth mentioning that there are a few teams in the Truck Series that are searching for a driver. There is a possibility that she could race for them in a vacant slot.

On the other hand, she could try to snatch a part-time seat at another team. Obviously, part-time status is possible in NASCAR, and Decker knows it.

Although, if she is back in the Truck Series, it would be interesting to see her and Hailie Deegan battle it out with the top drivers.

Throughout her Truck Series career, she has been on and off the grid. This is largely down to her health status, which has often forced her to skip a few races.

Hopefully, for her sake, she can land a full-time seat or a part-time seat somewhere. She has spent much of her career in the Truck Series, and it isn’t outside the realm of possibility to see her make her Xfinity debut.
