BROWNSBURG, Ind. – Top Fuel Dragster driver Spencer Massey is no longer part of Don Schumacher Racing effective immediately, team owner Don Schumacher said Friday afternoon.

Massey will not return to DSR to drive the dragster led by crew chiefs Todd Okuhara and Phil Shuler, which finished third in championship points this past season.

“I appreciate what Spencer did for us the past two years, but I have decided to go in a different direction,” Schumacher said. “I wish Spencer all the luck in the world and hope he returns to driving next season in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.”

In his two years with DSR, Massey scored eight victories in 17 final round appearances.
