H2 Motorsports Parts Ways With Shane Lee

NASCAR Xfinity Series team H2 Motorsports has parted ways with driver Shane Lee, according to Catchfence.

Lee has confirmed this news on Twitter in reply to a fan’s query, simply stating, “That is correct.”

The team debuted its No. 28 Toyota in the first Iowa Speedway event earlier this season, and in seven races Lee had a best finish of seventh at the second Iowa race, with top-20 results in five of those races.

Despite those impressive results for a start-up team, Catchfence reported that the decision was performance-based.

H2 Motorsports skipped the three road course races at Watkins Glen International, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and Road America after initially announcing a full-time run starting at Iowa.

Lee is a 26-year-old from Newton, N.C., with 20 career starts in the Xfinity Series. He drove the No. 3 Chevy for Richard Childress Racing on a part-time schedule in 2018, earning three top 10s in 13 races with a best finish of fourth at Kansas Speedway.

Lee also has three starts in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series and 30 starts in the ARCA Menards Series.

A replacement for Lee at Darlington Raceway this weekend has not been announced.
