It is not news that the folks over at Stewart-Haas racing are thinking about adding a third entry for the team in 2010. While it seems that the SHR team is strong enough for a third team, the question arises who will drive the third entry?

By taking a look at the news and trends reported by Jayski from Autoracingsport.com, not to mention my other fellow NASCAR examiners across the country, we came up with three possible candidates. Two of the three seem more likely than the third.

The first candidate who appears strong enough is Brad Keslowski, who won a Cup race earlier this year and wants to compete in both the Cup and Nationwide series full time next year.

Since Hendrick doesn’t have room for him on his roster, Keslowski will have to break in with one of the Hendrick affiliated teams. That means if Keslowski is in the cup series in 2010, he either will drive the third SHR car or pilot a JR Motor Sports Cup entry.

At this point, it is even money for which road Keslowski will eventually end up on.
