Grant Enfinger, Truck Series regular, will sub for Noah Gragson, driver of the No. 42 NASCAR Chevy Camaro ZL1 for Legacy Motor Club (LMC), at Sonoma on June 11th, 2023. Gragson, who wrecked during the Cup Series race at Gateway on June 4th, 2023, is experiencing concussion-like symptoms, prompting him to sit out at least one race.
After the wreck at Gateway on Lap 197, Gragson was released from the infield care center. However, the concussion-like symptoms became noticeable later in the week. He is currently seeking treatment, but in the interim, Enfinger will drive the No. 42 NASCAR Chevy in his stead.
“Noah’s health is the highest of priorities and we commend him for making the decision to sit out this weekend,” said LMC co-owners Maury Gallagher and Jimmie Johnson in a statement. “We are appreciative that Grant was available and willing to step in since the Truck Series is off this weekend.”
“My thoughts are with Noah, I know how much he loves this team and the guys on it,” Enfinger said. “I’m happy to help out Legacy Motor Club and the No. 42 team.”
Enfinger regularly drives the No. 23 NASCAR Chevy Silverado RST for GMS Racing. In fact, he won in the Truck Series at Gateway last weekend, dodging a late-race wreck that opened the door for him to sneak past the leaders and cross the finish line in first. Enfinger has not competed at the Cup Series level, though he attempted – and subsequently failed – to qualify for the division in a one-off event at Homestead in 2011.
As for LMC, the NASCAR Chevy team will soon turn its back on The Bow Tie, and will begin running Toyota TRD Camry race cars in place of Chevy Camaro entries beginning in 2024.
