Roush Fenway Racing announced that it will suspend operations of the No. 6 Xfinity team after this weekend’s race at Pocono Raceway.

The move comes with Darrell Wallace Jr. taking over the No. 43 Cup ride until Aric Almirola returns from injuries suffered in a crash last month at Kansas Speedway. Also, Roush Fenway Racing did not have sponsorship of the No. 6 Xfinity car beyond this weekend.

Roush Fenway Racing stated in a release that the team and Wallace will continue to evaluate any potential opportunities to run Xfinity races this season.

Wallace is fourth in the points heading into Saturday’s race at Pocono. With Wallace out, it will create an opportunity for another driver to make the Xfinity playoffs.

After Pocono, Roush will field only the No. 16 Xfinity team of Ryan Reed.
