T.J. Majors leaving Hendrick Motorsports as No. 88 spotter at season’s end
T.J. Majors announced on Twitter Monday that this will be his last season with Hendrick Motorsports and the No. 88 NASCAR Cup team.
Majors serves as the spotter for Dale Earnhardt Jr., who is also in his final season driving in Cup.
“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 will forever be grateful for.”
Majors also serves as spotter for Justin Allgaier’s No. 7 JR Motorsports Chevrolet in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, as well as the No. 29 Brad Keselowski Racing Ford driven by Chase Briscoe.
Majors did not announce what he’ll be doing after leaving HMS.
Here’s what Majors tweeted:
UPDATE: Monday on his podcast “Door, Bumper, Clear,” Majors announced he will spot for Joey Logano in 2018.
“They’ve been great to me, I look forward to it,” Majors said. “Going to be teammates with Brad (Keselowski). Obviously, Brad’s one of my best friends. ... Joey Logano’s been great. I like him, he’s really a good guy. I know people boo him and stuff for racing hard. But I like how Joey drives. He’s aggressive. He knows what he needs to do.”
In a related move, Alex Bowman, who will replace Earnhardt in the No. 88 next season, announced on Twitter his spotter for the 2018 Cup season will be Kevin Hamlin.
