Due to unforeseen circumstances, I will not be in the No. 1 HRE Toyota for this weekend’s NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race.

I do appreciate and thank the HRE team for allowing me to race for them this season and we attained good things, including six top five finishes and sat 3rd in points after the 11th race of the season.

I hope to be back racing soon and will keep plugging away.
