According to NASCAR.com, three unnamed sources have confirmed that Bobby Labonte will drive the No. 96 Ford Fusion fielded by Hall Of Fame Racing and Yates Racing.
The two teams announced that they will be aligning, and that HOF Racing would be moving to Yates Racing’s shop.
So, if true, you can pretty much throw out whether or not Labonte would be a good fit for Earnhardt Ganassi Racing. Labonte’s name has been linked to EGR’s No. 8 and No. 41 since he was released from Petty Enterprises.
