Sponsor impact hits David Starr; out at JDM


David Starr shared a string of tweets explaining that the economic impact due to COVID-19 has caused him to lose his ride with JD Motorsports.

AND: Team owner Johnny Davis confirmed Jeffrey Earnhardt will be a primary driver going forward for the No. 6 race team. Earnhardt had originally been announced as a part-time driver for the team this season in its Nos. 0 and 15.

"It’s pretty much the majority of the rest of the year, provided everything goes through like it’s supposed to," Davis said of Earnhardt. "In these trying times, we have to put a clause in anybody’s agreement that, if something happens money-wise, financial-wise, we’ve got to look at it and see if it can continue or if somebody else is out there. We left all of our options open."
