Friday marked the end of an era for FDNY Racing. The team confirmed Daytona was the final Truck Series race for its No. 28, ending a part-time NASCAR effort that’s lasted over 30 years.
Team owner Jim Rosenblum has been an owner in NASCAR since 1983. He first fielded Jocko Maggiacomo in the former Winston Cup series in the 1980s, the driver best known for wrecking with Bobby Allison in a 1988 Pocono crash that ended the Hall of Famer’s career. Rosenblum later fielded cars for Randy LaJoie and a handful of other drivers. He was one of the founding members of the Truck Series, where drivers such as Joe Ruttman, Carl Long, Andy Lally, Blake Koch and Ryan Ellis raced for him.
FDNY’s No. 28 truck of Bryan Dauzat briefly ran in the top 10 before crashing Friday night. The team finished 18th in its swan song.
