Morgan Shepherd unsure of next race


Morgan Shepherd has not qualified for a NASCAR Nationwide Series race this season and 71-year-old driver is unsure when he will return to the track.

Shepherd has been attempting to run a full-time Nationwide schedule for since 2008 but the lack of funding has taken its toll on the No. 89 team.

The following message was posted on Shepherd’s Facebook page.

“Just going to let everyone know that I do not know if or when we will be attending another race event in 2013 due to non-funding. We have given all the efforts every way we could just can not go any longer. Sorry to disappoint. We have and are always looking for sponsors.”

After qualifying for every race in 2011, Shepherd made just 21 races last season and failed to crack the field in 10 others. This season he had failed to qualify at Daytona and Bristol.
