Basically, imagining who will be with what team in 2016. This list includes all major active current teams, plus teams that I believe will be in Cup in 2016.
5-Kasey Kahne: I believe Kahne will stay with Hendrick, as he is the future of that organization.
48-Jimmie Johnson: Johnson will have signed a lifetime contract with Hendrick by that time, and will stay.
88-Dale Earnhardt Jr.: Junior stays with Hendrick until he retires, renews his contract.
94-Chase Elliott(R): This is Hendrick's only change. Chase Elliott races full-time in the Nationwide series in 2014 and 2015, and in 2016 comes in and takes over for Jeff Gordon, who retires in 2015. The #24 becomes the #94. Runs for ROTY.
Joe Gibbs Racing:
11-Denny Hamlin: Denny Hamlin remains with Joe Gibbs Racing.
18-Kurt Busch: Kyle Busch's contract runs out at the end of 2013. Joe Gibbs pulls a quick one and signs brother Kurt. Gibbs harnesses his inner coach and Kurt Busch mellows out permanently.
20-Matt Kenseth: Matt Kenseth isn't going anywhere. Will retire at JGR.
76-Darrell Wallace Jr.(R): Bubba runs 2013 under the KBM banner. Replaces Brian Vickers in the Nationwide #20 in 2014. Runs two years in Nationwide and comes up in the fourth JGR team for 2016. Runs for ROTY.
Roush Fenway Racing:
6-Trevor Bayne: Bayne comes up to run full-time in 2014. Still with the team in 2016.
16-Regan Smith: Smith wins the Nationwide championship in 2013 and 2014. Greg Biffle's contract is not renewed at the end of 2014 and Roush signs Smith.
17-Ricky Stenhouse Jr.: Stenhouse remains with Roush. Becomes the top driver there after 2014.
99-Carl Edwards: Cousin Carl remains with Roush through 2016 and beyond.
Richard Childress Racing:
3-Austin Dillon: No surprise here. Dillon moves up in 2014 and bring the #3 with him.
27-Paul Menard: Menard becomes more and more competitive as time wears on. Remains with RCR and is a stout contender to make the Chase every year.
31-Greg Biffle: Childress signs Ryan Newman for 2014. Newman underperforms, and Childress replaces him with Greg Biffle in 2015.
41-Ty Dillon(R): Ty Dillon brings his special #41 to Cup. Runs for ROTY.
Michael Waltrip Racing:
15-Clint Bowyer: Bowyer remains with MWR. No change here.
55-Brian Vickers: Vickers takes over for 2014 and beyond. No change afterwards.
56-Martin Truex Jr.: Truex remains with MWR. No change here.
10-Danica Patrick: Danica remains despite performing like crap. She makes everyone too much money to go anywhere else.
14-Tony Stewart: Stewart obviously remains. No change.
29-Kevin Harvick: Harvick remains also after starting in 2014.
2-Brad Keselowski: Keselowski remains here. No change.
12-Sam Hornish Jr.: Hornish finally comes up to Cup in 2014 after an amazing NW run in 2013.
22-Joey Logano: Logano remains with Penske. No change.
Richard Petty Motorsports:
9-Michael Annett(R): Ambrose retires after 2015. Annett takes over. Runs for ROTY.
43-Aric Almirola: Almirola becomes more competitive. Remains with RPM.
1-Ryan Newman: Newman takes over for 2015 and beyond after being canned from RCR.
42-Kyle Larson: Larson takes over also for 2015 and beyond.
Furniture Row Racing:
78-Jamie McMurray: After being canned from EGR, McMurray finds his home at Furniture Row. Does not perform well, as the RCR support decreased after Kurt Busch left.
Turner Scott Motorsports: (comes up to Cup in 2014)
28-Elliott Sadler: Sadler comes up to Cup with TSM in 2014 for the veteran leadership that the team needs.
30-James Buescher: Buescher comes up to Cup with TSM in 2014.
32-Justin Allgaier: Allgaier comes up to Cup with TSM in 2014.
Notes: Team will get engines from Hendrick.
Kyle Busch Motorsports: (in Cup in 2014)
54-Kyle Busch: Kyle Busch moves to his own team from JGR.
77-Parker Kligerman: Kligerman comes up in 2015 with Kyle's 2nd team.
Notes: Kyle agreed with Joe Gibbs that he'd do his own thing, but still use Gibbs chassis and TRD motors. Monster Energy funds the team greatly, sponsoring both cars.
