Days after being indefinitely suspended, NASCAR Cup Series driver Noah Gragson on Thursday announced that he has requested to be released from his contract with the Legacy Motor Club team. 

”I have asked Legacy Motor Club to release me from my contract so that I can take time to work through the NASCAR reinstatement process,” the statement from Gragson read. “I love racing, and I am looking forward to a second chance to compete for wins at the highest level of NASCAR – and most importantly, make my family, my team and the fans proud of me once again.”

Legacy Motor Club CEO Cal Wells III also released a statement Thursday saying: “Noah has a ton of talent and has a great personality. This is a difficult situation, but we are proud that Noah has taken ownership of his actions and are confident he will work through this process with NASCAR and come back stronger.

Legacy Motor Club team announced Saturday that they had suspended Gragson indefinitely for: “actions that do not represent the values of our team.”

NASCAR also announced later Saturday that Gragson has been indefinitely suspended for violating the member conduct section of the NASCAR Rule Book.

The 25-year old Gragson is in his first season racing full-time in the Cup Series. Reportedly, Gragson liked a comedic meme on social media referring to the death of George Floyd which led to the suspension.

    Maybe if Gragson had better connections NASCAR would have offered him a “sweetheart plea deal”……
