Labonote To Drive TRG’s No. 71
It was reported that Erik Darnell would be replacing Bobby Labonte in Yates Racing’s No. 96 Ford Fusion. Well, it didn’t take Labonte long to find a ride. He will pilot TRG Motorsports’ No. 71 in the races in which he will be replaced by Darnell. The move allows the team to use the past champion’s provisional. david gilliland remains with the team and will drive when Labonte’s not in the car.
