Noah Gragson Suspended by Team

Noah Gragson Suspended by Team

Josh Berry to Race the #42 Legacy Motor Club Entry


Legacy Motor Club said Saturday that Noah Gragson had been suspended for Sunday’s race at Michigan for “actions that do not represent the values of our team.”


Gragson will be replaced by Josh Berry in the No. 42 car for Sunday’s race. Berry — who will replace Kevin Harvick at Stewart-Haas Racing in 2024 — succeeded Gragson in the No. 9 Xfinity Series car at JR Motorsports when Gragson moved up to the Cup Series in 2023.


“I am disappointed in myself for my lack of attention and actions on social media,” Gragson wrote. “I understand the severity of this situation. I love and appreciate everyone. I try to create everyone equally no matter who they are. I messed up plain and simple.”


Apparently, the twenty-five-year-old Gragson liked an Instagram meme mocking the 2020 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.


Gragson is currently in thirty-third place in the 2023 point standings with no top ten finishes. He is second out of two rookies illegible for the Sunoco Rookie of The Year standings.
