Operation of No. 66 Cup team suspended

The No. 66 Premium Motorsports NASCAR Sprint Cup Chevrolet has withdrawn from the Sprint Cup race at Auto Club Speedway this weekend, team owner Jay Robinson confirmed on Wednesday.

However, Robinson will attempt to qualify the No. 62 South Point Hotel & Casino Chevy with Brendan Gaughan.

"The No. 66 is not a sponsored team," Robinson told Motorsport.com. "And if you’re not making races, then you’re not making money. Fortunately, we made the Daytona 500, so that carried us for a while. Every race is expensive and when you have to pay for tires, engines and personnel it’s hard to do."
