NASCAR Truck Series driver Spencer Davis said he won’t race Friday at Michigan Speedway after testing positive for COVID-19.
He announced the news Thursday on Twitter, saying he was “looking forward to getting over this and back on track.”
“We have been taking all the proper steps during traveling for races and at the events,” he wrote. “This week I had to go take tests and one positive test result is keeping us from racing Michigan. I support the protocols in place by the CDC and NASCAR, and plan on taking the correct steps to come back to the track.”
A replacement driver for Friday’s race has not been named.
Davis, 21, has 18 career starts in three years, half of them this season. His best finish this year was 12th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Before he can return to the track, he must meet the three criteria established by NASCAR: Two negative COVID-19 tests at least 24 hours apart, no symptoms and clearance from a physician.
