"Over the past several weeks there has been a steady and gradual improvement in the Morgan-McClure racecar and Spencer has been an integral part of this drive for success. While his part has been greatly appreciated by everyone here at Morgan-McClure Motorsports, it has been decided, by mutual agreement, that it would be beneficial to both the team and to Jimmy Spencer to release him so that he may pursue other driving opportunities within the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series," Larry McClure, team owner, stated.
An announcement for his replacement in the No. 4 Chevrolet will be made before the Bass Pro Shops 500 race in Atlanta, Georgia this weekend.
On Sunday, Spencer was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting a public officer or interfering with officers serving a warrant on his son James Johnathan Spencer Jr.,
