NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series driver Dawson Cram has parted ways with Long Motorsports, both Cram and the team announced Aug. 13.

Per a tweeted statement, Cram said he mutually agreed to part ways with the organization citing undisclosed circumstances related to business and money.

“I am disheartened by the fact that I will no longer be a part of the growth of Long Motorsports as a team but I have to follow the path I see best for myself, my image, and my own personal growth and follow the advice of people I trust,” Cram said in the statement. “I wish nothing but the best for Long Motorsports and hope to see them at the track more this year.”

The 18-year-old first teamed up with the Long organization this season and has competed in its No. 55 Chevrolet in three Truck events, scoring a best finish of 14th at Michigan International Raceway. Cram also made a start for Reaume Brothers Racing at Kansas Speedway.

In addition to his driving duties, Cram has been employed by JD Motorsports with Gary Keller as a mechanic on its No. 6 entry in the Xfinity Series.

Despite Cram’s departure, Long plans to continue to compete throughout the remainder of the season. It remains unclear who will be its driver going forward.

Cram did not comment on his driving future other than stating, “I will be back.”
