Truex out of the #83 ride?

Ryan Truex's run in the #83 Burger King/Borla Exhaust Toyota appears to have come to an end, after BK Racing replaced the New Jersey native with former Camping World Truck Series champion Travis Kvapil last weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Sources within the team said the change stemmed from unhappiness with the level of feedback received from Truex. He is not expected to return to the car this season. Messages left with BK Racing officials seeking comment were not immediately returned. Godfather Motorsports

For the second consecutive week Ryan Truex will not drive the #83 BK Racing entry, and the rookie's long-term status with the team is in doubt. When asked about Truex's future with the team by SB Nation Tuesday, a BK Racing spokesman described the situation as "week-to-week" with no determination having been made about the remainder of the 2014 season.

As to why Truex was being replaced, the reason cited was an "owner's decision," with discussions ongoing between the organization and Truex's representatives, according to the spokesman. BK Racing replaced Truex with former Camping World Truck Series champion Travis Kvapil last weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Kvapil is again listed as the driver of the #83 for Sunday's race at Dover International Speedway. SB Nation
