Driver Joey Gase will leave the Means Motorsports team in the NASCAR Xfinity Series at season’s end, according to announcements from both driver and team.

The race team is searching for driver(s) for the 2018 season, preferably finding a driver to drive its No. 52 entry for the entire season but is open to putting multiple drivers in the car next year.

“While forming these new relationships, we are excited to see what this opportunity will bring to the No. 52 next year and beyond,” car owner Jimmy Means said.

Gase has been the driver of the No. 52 car since a race at Iowa Speedway in Newton in 2012. He’s driven the car to three top-10 finish, including his career-best of fifth at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway in 2015.

“I have to thank Jimmy, Tim and everyone at Means Motorsports for giving me a chance back in 2012 and choosing me to drive their car the last five years,” Gase said. “It is pretty amazing to see how we went from a start-and-park team most weeks, to being locked in every race and competing for top-20 in points. I will never forget our fifth-place finish at Talladega and our past two top-10 finishes in a row at Daytona. We still have racing left in 2017, and finishing strong for all of our sponsors and fans is our top priority.”

Gase also competes part-time in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, driving for Premium Motorsports. and BK Racing.
