That is correct

The team debuted its No. 28 Toyota in the first Iowa Speedway event earlier this season, and in seven races Lee had a best finish of seventh at the second Iowa race, with top-20 results in five of those races.
Despite those impressive results for a start-up team, Catchfence reported that the decision was performance-based.
H2 Motorsports skipped the three road course races at Watkins Glen International, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and Road America after initially announcing a full-time run starting at Iowa.
Lee is a 26-year-old from Newton, N.C., with 20 career starts in the Xfinity Series. He drove the No. 3 Chevy for Richard Childress Racing on a part-time schedule in 2018, earning three top 10s in 13 races with a best finish of fourth at Kansas Speedway.
Lee also has three starts in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series and 30 starts in the ARCA Menards Series.
A replacement for Lee at Darlington Raceway this weekend has not been announced.
