Legacy Motor Club Suspends Gragson

Legacy Motor Club has suspended driver Noah Gragson ahead of this weekend’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Michigan Int’l Speedway.

The team revealed in a statement Saturday morning that Gragson was suspended “regarding his actions that do not represent the values of our team.”

NASCAR Xfinity Series full-time driver Josh Berry will pilot the No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro this weekend in the Firekeepers Casino 400. 

Gragson released a statement following his suspension.

“I am disappointed in myself for my lack of attention and actions on social media. I understand the severity of this situation. I love and appreciate everyone. I try to treat everyone equally no matter who they are. I messed up plain and simple.”

Gragson’s infraction falls under Section 4.4.D. of the NASCAR Rule Book, which concerns member conduct. NASCAR officials also released a statement. 

“NASCAR fully supports Legacy Motor Club’s decision to suspend Noah Gragson. Following his actions on social media, NASCAR has determined that Gragson has violated the Member Conduct section of the 2023 NASCAR Rule Book and has placed him under indefinite suspension.”

Currently in his rookie season, Gragson sits 33rd in points.
