Joe Denette Motorsports, Gresham Agree To Part Ways

Joe Denette Motorsports and Max Greshman have mutually agreed to part ways effective immediately, the team and the driver announced.

The split comes after eight races together in which their best finish was 18th in the Good Sam Roadside Assistance 200 at Rockingham Speedway in April.

The team posted an average finish of 23.8 in their eight races together and they sit 20th in points.

Greshman said in a press release [1]:

I know everyone expected to do better than that. The guys at JDM are some of the hardest working I have ever been around and they did their best to give me great equipment week in and out. … Honestly, everybody did their best this year. Unfortunately, we just didn’t have the results to show for it.

Team owner Joe Denette said:

Obviously, we hate to see Max go. Max has been a great student of the sport with a wealth of natural talent and a friendly personality. Unfortunately, Joe Denette Motorsports was not the right fit for him. We wish Max the best of luck in the future and know without a doubt he will land on his feet.

Denette did not indicate whether or not he would continue to field the No. 24, but said he is committed to running the No. 9 truck with Ron Hornaday and competing at a championship level.
