NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Ray Black Jr. is quitting NASCAR for the time being so that he can focus on his family business.
Ray Black Jr. came 21st in the first Xfinity Series race at Darlington Raceway on May 21 to be held after the season resumed again.
Speaking to Forntstrech, the SS-Green Light Racing driver said:
We were shutdown for three months and that was huge for us. We had Darlington left on the list. After that, it was figuring out what was next.
We talked to Bobby for a long time and we all kind of came to the conclusion where we had to focus on our school and getting back up and running, that way we can put the best budget out.
I felt like I needed to help out because it is my family business. I felt like I needed to put racing to the side for a little bit and go help out. They definitely need me right now and it’s a weird time in the world.

The business that Black is speaking about is Commercial Diving Academy (CDA) that his father founded. However, with the pandemic, the company has not been as successful as before. So, Black wants to “put racing to the side for a little bit” and help his family out.
Black’s place in the No. 07 Chevrolet will be taken by Garrett Smithley.

I am sending prayers for him and his family because it sounds to me as if they raised a good son who passed the test.
Good for the driver.
He is taking a lesson from the fans who have QUIT NASCAR!
HARD TIMES require HARD DECISIONS—-Have always been a BOBBY DOTTER FAN and followed him as a CAR OWNER. Hope Ray Black Jr. gets his FAMILY BUSINESS back up and going and gets back into racing.
