Dale Earnhardt Jr. won’t be the only departure from the No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet team in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series at season’s end. Earnhardt’s longtime spotter, T.J. Majors, also will leave the team at the end of the season.

“Because many of you have asked, I wanted to confirm that this season will be my last with the No. 88 team and Hendrick Motorsports,” Majors (@Tjmajors) tweeted Monday afternoon. “I would like to thank Mr. Hendrick and everyone at the organization for an incredible 10+ years that have provided me countless friendships and memories that I wil forever be grateful for. I look forward to ending the season strong with Dale and our No. 88 team, as well as what the future holds for me and my family.”

Majors announced Monday via podcast he would be Joey Logano’s spotter on the No. 22 Team Penske Ford team next year.

This year, Majors also is the spotter for Justin Allgaier on the No. 7 JR Motorsports Chevrolet team in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and Chase Briscoe on the No. 29 Brad Keselowski Motorsports Ford team in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Brad Keselowski Racing is shuttering operations at the end of the season.

Alex Bowman will take over driving duties of the No. 88 in the Cup Series upon Earnhardt’s departure. Kevin Hamlin will be his spotter next year.

“Really pumped to say we’ll have @KevinHamlin spotting for the 88 next year! Going to be a great addition to the team!” Bowman (@AlexBRacing) tweeted.
