BREAKING NEWS: Labonte Leaves TRG #71 for Rides With Robby Gordon, Phoenix Racing

Bobby Labonte has reportedly terminated his contract with TRG Motorsports, and will drive the Robby Gordon Motorsports #7 Toyota this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

TRG Motorsports owner Kevin Buckler said as recently as yesterday that there was no truth to reports that Labonte has parted company with the team, but Andy Lally is now slated to drive the TRG Motorsports #71 Chevrolet this weekend. An official announcement from the team could come later today. Crewchief Doug Randolph left the operation a few weeks ago.

In a related story, Phoenix Racing owner James Finch has announced that Labonte will run his #09 Chevrolet in next Saturday night’s Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway, and in the 400 at Chicagoland Speedway on July 10th. Finch said of Labonte, “We’re going to run several (races). We’d like to run as many as we can to get sponsorship.”
