John Wes Townley will miss the Camping World Truck Series season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway due to non-racing injury to his left ankle.

Brady Boswell will drive the No. 05 Chevrolet in his place.

Townley has missed the last two races at Texas Motor Speedway and Phoenix International Raceway because of his injury.

“The good news is I was able to get off the crutches last week,” Townley said in a press release. “The bad news is I’m still limping some. Nothing is broken. But it’s just going to take longer than I thought for it to heal.”

Townley will finish the season having competed in 18 of 23 races. He has two top 10s with a best finish of seventh at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Boswell will make his second Truck series start. He drove for Townley at Eldora Speedway and finished 21st.

“This will be a great opportunity for Brady,” Townley said. “I know he’ll do a solid job for Athenian Motorsports. He drove for us at Eldora this summer. I’m confident he can get us a strong finish at Homestead.”
