A lack of sponsorship and team funding has brought a premature end to the 2015 season for NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Cale Conley.

The driver of the No. 14 TriStar Motorsports Toyota had qualified for all 30 races thus far in 2015, with a best finish of 16th at both Fontana earlier this season and Kentucky last month.

The 23-year-old driver from Vienna, West Virginia was in his first full-time season in the Xfinity Series. He is ranked 19th in the standings.

“I would like to thank the TriStar Motorsports organization and owner Mark Smith for giving me this opportunity to race at tracks I had not visited in the past,” Conley said in a statement. “I am really looking forward to finalizing my 2016 race season plans and I am excited to see everyone at Daytona International Speedway in February.

“I want to thank all of my loyal fans, my family and the support from the members of the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.”
