Noah Gragson will now drive the No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro of Legacy Motor Club this weekend at Sonoma Raceway.
Gragson began to experience concussion-like symptoms earlier this week as a result of a crash on lap 197 of Sunday’s race at World Wide Technology Raceway.
Following the crash Gragson was checked at the infield care center and was released. In an interview during the race he expressed disappointment with the season.

“Noah’s health is the highest of priorities and we commend him for making the decision to sit out this weekend,” said team co-owners Maury Gallagher and Jimmie Johnson. “We are appreciative that Grant was available and willing to step in since the Truck Series is off this weekend.”
Filling in for Gragson will Grant Enfinger. The 38-year-old Enfinger will be making his first career start in the Cup Series in a career that has seen him win nine Truck Series races, including two this season, and the 2015 ARCA Menards Series title.
“My thoughts are with Noah, I know how much he loves this team and the guys on it,” said Enfinger. “I’m happy to help out Legacy Motor Club and the No. 42 team.”
