Since competing in 30 NASCAR XFINITY Series races in 2015, Cale Conley’s 2016 season is on hold, as he is yet to compete in any of the 13 XFINITY Series races so far. Conley currently doesn’t have a ride lined up in the XFINITY Series,  but the West Virginia native says he has been keeping busy with dirt late model racing and sponsorship searching.

“Right now, I’m searching for sponsorship,” Conley said to The Racing Experts. “It’s been tough, especially being around the racecars and being around the track, watching, seeing what I dream about doing but I’m not able to do it right now, just because of lack of sponsorship. “It’s not on my timetable to make it happen, it’s going to play out when it’s supposed to play out. That’s out of my hands, that’s in the Man upstairs’ hands.

I fully trust in Him and I’m fortunate enough to have been able to have lived my dream up to this point, and I still think I am, because I’m so close to getting a sponsor and being able to get back in a racecar.” In 47 starts in the XFINITY Series, Conley posted one top-ten finish in 2014, a sixth place effort at Kentucky Speedway.

Conley last raced in the XFINITY Series at Kansas Speedway in October of 2015. After finishing 30th at Kansas, Conley was released by TriStar Motorsports with three races left in the 2015 season, citing lack of funding. Conley says his goal is to run in at least ten XFINITY Series races this season. “It’s so hard to tell if that is even going to happen, it’s so hard to tell even if I’ll even get one race or not,” he said.

“I haven’t talked to any teams, I don’t have any funding right now to make anything happen yet, so we’ll see. “I don’t know what situation I’ll settle into but I hope it’s a good one, I just can’t wait to strap back into one of these [cars] and go race again.”
