Blaney failed to make last weeks race at Watkins Glen but had qualified for 17 of the seasons first 22 races.

Scott Riggs will make his debut for the team in the #66 and Michael McDowell will again be in the #55.

Team owner Phil Parsons offered the following “Dave Blaney has been instrumental in getting our team started and to this point in the 2010 race season, so we are thankful to him and wish him the best in his future endeavors.”

There has been no information to where or if Blaney may end up in a ride again this season but the options are not looking good for the 47 year-old from Hartford, OH.

One of the few options out there may be the second car at Robby Gordon Motorsports in place of PJ Jones, aside from that there is also the #34 Extenze Ford which recently replaced Kevin Conway with veteran Tony Raines.
