On Point Motorsports will not be racing in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series’ Digital Ally 250 at Kansas Speedway on Friday night, citing a lack of sponsorship for the No. 30 Toyota Tundra. The team explained their decision Wednesday morning (May 8) on Twitter.

However, the team says they will be back at Charlotte Motor Speedway next week with a new sponsor.
Brennan Poole has been the driver for all previous races this season, and unless he can find a last-minute ride, this decision will end his playoff chances. Through six races, he has a best finish of ninth at Texas Motor Speedway, two DNFs and an average finish of 19.7.
Poole is currently 13th in the NGOTS driver standings with 108 points, and the No. 30 is currently 18th in the owner standings with the same amount of points. Poole would have been entering Kansas more than a full race out of the playoffs.
Last Friday at Dover, Poole hit the wall twice in his Toyota. The second hit brought out the race’s final caution and ended his day, relegating him to a 23rd-place finish.
Friday night’s Digital Ally 250 already only had 28 trucks entered. Wednesday’s announcement drops that number down to 27, five short of a full field.
