Three teams/drivers failed to make a qualifying attempt at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C., on Oct. 6 during a three-round qualifying session for the Oct. 8 Bank of America 400 — the No. 77 Furniture Row Racing Toyota team of Erik Jones and the No. 23 and No. 83 BK Racing Toyota teams of Corey LaJoie and Brett Moffitt. Jones wasn’t able to make a qualifying attempt because his car didn’t get through pre-qualifying inspection in time, but the BK Racing teams didn’t make qualifying attempts because “bills were not paid,” Moffitt told NBC Sports.

Car owner Ron Devine declined comment.

The two BK Racing cars were parked the entire day on Friday, also sitting out the lone practice session of the day. Saturday practice sessions were cancelled because of rain. Both cars did start the race, though. LaJoie finished 28th, and Moffitt wound up 39th after being involved in a wreck.

BK Racing has been in the news because of financial issues before, as reported here.

The team received its third IRS tax lien in less than a year in early August, with those three liens totaling over $600,000. BK Racing also has, reportedly defaulted on a $2 million promissory note and had disputes with former drivers over payment, most recently with Gray Gaulding. Gaulding and BK Racing parted ways earlier this season over a financial dispute.
