It was announced today via the Clubb ARCA Racing facebook account that the partnership between Clubb Racing owner Alex Clubb and Rita Thomason would be put on hold, due a mechanical failure at this past weekend’s race at Mid-Ohio.
In a statement, Thomason said “The transmission and a shock broke and realistically, I can’t afford to fix it before the end of the season.” On lap 34, Thomason was seven laps down when failure occurred and would finish 19th in the event.
Thomason stated that she hopes the car will be ready by 2023 and hopes to return to the short tracks and road courses
In the same statement Clubb Racing released, Clubb announced that the races Thomason was supposed to run were now open if a driver was available, the tracks in question were IRP and Duquioin.
Clubb racing hopes to fill the seat as the #03 is scheduled to go full-time for the rest of 2022, while the No. 3 is hoped to run as many races as possible in the 2022 season.
