NASCAR Cup rookie Gray Gaulding will not compete in Sunday’s FireKeeper’s Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway.
Gaulding tweeted Tuesday morning that Ryan Sieg will fill his position in the No. 23 Dr. Pepper Toyota of BK Racing:
The 19-year-old Gaulding has started 13 of the first 14 races of the 2017 season for BK Racing. His best starting spot was 25th at Texas, while his best finish has been 20th at Talladega. He finished 29th in Sunday’s race at Pocono.
The team has not announced whether Sieg replacing Gaulding for the Michigan race will be a one-race situation or whether Sieg will run additional events in the No. 23.
Sieg added this tweet:
Sieg made his debut for BK Racing at Dover International Speedway two weeks ago in the No. 83 Toyota, replacing Corey LaJoie that weekend. Sieg qualified 34th and finished 26th.
