Bret Holmes Not Competing at Homestead, Phoenix

Bret Holmes will not compete in the final two races of the 2023 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series season, a team spokesperson confirmed to Frontstretch.

“We’re kind of to a point in the season where it’s just better off for us to regroup for next year,” the spokesperson said. “Just a small team and we’re better off regrouping for next year.”

The two races left for the Truck field are at Homestead-Miami Speedway and Phoenix Raceway.

Bret Holmes Racing’s standing in the owner’s points also influenced the team’s decision to skip the final two races of the 2023 campaign. The top 20 teams in the owner’s points at the end of the year receive an additional monetary bonus. BHR’s No. 32 is 114 behind 20th.

“We’re sitting 25th in points,” the spokesperson continued. “Honestly, no, with only two races left, I don’t believe we could get into the top 20 as it sits.”

Holmes competed in his rookie season in 2023 driving for his self-owned No. 32 BHR team.

The Mumford, Ala., native sits 22nd in points. Overall in his Truck career, Holmes has one top five, a third-place finish at Talladega Superspeedway in 2022, and two top 10s.

Holmes will be back behind the wheel of his No. 32 truck in 2024 as the spokesperson said Holmes is slated to compete full time next year. More details will be announced in the next two or three weeks.

probably cannot get sponsors

Yeah I think that Bret Holmes would find some sponsors for his own race team for next season.
