With the racing season rapidly approaching, here’s what we know about the 2020 plans of Wisconsin drivers planning or likely to compete on the national level.

Johnny Sauter

The 19-year NASCAR veteran will continue in the truck series with ThorSport, the team that launched his truck career in 2009. Sauter, 41, a Necedah native, won once last year in his return to ThorSport after three seasons (including the 2016 championship) at GMS.

Ty Majeski

 A NASCAR trucks deal with Niece Motorsports announced in December will be the first full season in any national division for the 25-year-old from Seymour and a move to Chevrolet after a career-long association with Ford. He won three of six ARCA starts last year.

Majeski’s deal has the trickle-down effect on one of the best super-late teams in the country. Car owner Brad Mannstedt said Majeski will race a limited schedule around his truck commitments, and Carson Kvapil and “maybe a couple of other drivers” also will run some races for the team.

Josh Bilicki

Like last year, when he cobbled together more than three dozen races across NASCAR’s three national series, watch for the 24-year-old from Richfield to run a significant portion of the Xfinity schedule and also some in Cup and trucks. Insurance King is on board, but he’s always looking for sponsorship. The teams he has lined up at this point are ones he’s raced with in the past, Bilicki said.

Natalie Decker

After running most of last season in trucks with DGR-Crosley, the 22-year-old from Eagle River most likely will be back in that division with a different team to be determined. Decker plans to do some road racing, as well. 

Derek Kraus

Nothing has been announced for the 18-year-old NASCAR K&N West champion from Stratford, but his father indicated there are plans in the works that will be positive.  

Sam Mayer

The youngest NASCAR K&N East champion is still limited by his age. Mayer, 16, of Franklin, will continue with an aggressive mixed schedule of ARCA, three truck races and some TA2.

Aaron Telitz

The 28-year-old IndyCar hopeful from Rice Lake hasn’t found the budget to move up. He’ll be back for his second partial IMSA season with Lexus with his eyes open for other opportunities.
