LONG POND, Pa. - Jason White is in and John Wes Townley is out.
That was Friday's turn of events that led to the veteran Truck Series driver taking the wheel of the FAS Lane Racing No. 32 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series car.
Wes Townley was name driver for the team earlier this week bringing along sponsorship from the Zaxby's fast-food chicken restaurant
Camping World Truck Series driver Jason White will replace Townley, who was planning to make his Cup debut in Sunday's Pennsylvania 400 with sponsorship from this family-owned Zaxby's fast-food chicken restaurant chain.
But Townley, who did have a guaranteed starting spot in the field because of FAS Lane's owner points situation, slapped the wall without ever completing a lap in the day's first practice.
That led the team to replace the inexperienced driver with White who will drive the car in addition to his Camping World Truck Series duties on Saturday's.
Townley, whose father co-founded Zaxby's, was locked into the field thanks to the No. 32 team's owner points but was making his debut despite a disappointing NASCAR record.
Townley has had an inauspicious NASCAR career with a whopping 14 DNFs in 41 career Nationwide starts.
