Josh Wise announces departure from Premium Motorsports
Josh Wise announced on Twitter Monday morning he was parting ways with Premium Motorsports.
I have parted ways with Premium Motorsports. The team and I did not share the same goals moving forward.— Josh Wise (@Josh_Wise) July 13, 2015
I wish them the best and look forward to what the future holds.— Josh Wise (@Josh_Wise) July 13, 2015
Wise’s announcement of his departure comes days after Brendan Gaughan left the No. 62 team prior to the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway. Reed Sorenson replaced him.
In 17 races in the No. 98 this year, Wise’s best finish was 10th at Talladega.
Wise’s No. 98 car was owned by Mike Curb and was originally part of Phil Parson’s Racing before Premium Motorsports took it over earlier this year. Wise, known for being sponsored in multiple races by the crowd funded Dogecoin, won the fan vote for the 2014 Sprint All-Star Race thanks to a concentrated voting effort by supporters on Reddit.com
Premium Motorsports originated out of Tommy Baldwin Racing when Jay Robinson bought the assets of the No. 36 team in February and rebranded it the No. 62.
