After a very good top-35 season for the old man, the longtime-veteran Walt Flowers will officially retire after 31 N.O.R.L. Extravaganza Series seasons. Still in high hopes for career victory #10 this season, it has been more of the same story, despite some decent runs in the last couple of weeks. NSRA Racing has two up-and-coming stars in the Busch Series and Guthrie was already expecting to lose his ride before the announcement. "Walt, Scoop and I have been in talks for some weeks now" referring to Old Farts Racing owner Scoop Driscol. "It's been a pleasure racing for a competitive team like NSRA, but it's time to go back to the roots and put some fun back into it". Walt Flowers will take part ownership of the third Old Farts ride that is expected to be announced by the end of 2019, and will remain at the racetrack. "I wish I could've won the Daytona 500, but other than that it's been the best career anyone could have asked for". Struggling teammate Dale Rosendaul will continue on in the #11, and has high spirits for the oncoming season.
