"All of us at TriStar Motorsports appreciate what Tayler has done for our race team this year," said Tri-Star team owner Mark Smith. "Tayler did a great job for us and we wish him nothing but the best of luck as he explores future opportunities in this sport. I think it is really important for us as a team to set our sights on the future and take the appropriate steps in that direction."
