Wednesday, July 9th
It appears Kevin Lepage has been released from his Nationwide Series ride, and he didn't even know it.
Specialty Racing has announced that Brandon Whitt has been signed to drive the #61 Ford for the remainder of the season, starting this weekend at Chicagoland.
Lepage has driven the #61 car all season, including this past weekend at Daytona.
In a message on his fan website, Lepage says he did not quit, was not fired and has hired an attorney to look into the situation.
