On Tuesday, Spire Motorsports announced that James Davison would make his Cup debut for them at Talladega this weekend. Now, NASCAR has rescinded their approval for Davison citing a lack of Cup experience and not having any practice time before to get acclimated.
“I have been contacted by NASCAR and informed that although I was previously approved to race, they had to reconsider their position on Superspeedways, given there won’t be practice or qualifying prior to Sunday’s race at Talladega,” Davison said in a press release. “I was pumped about the opportunity to take the green flag, but I fully understand and appreciate NASCAR’s position. I’m approved to race next weekend at Pocono and equally thrilled to make my series debut there.”
Davison, will make his debut next weekend at Pocono now. Meanwhile, BJ McLeod will drive the No. 77 Chevrolet on Sunday now.
