SUGAR HILL, Ga. – Veteran driver Jeff Green will miss the second half of the NASCAR Xfinity season following rotator cuff surgery.
Green, who drives the No. 38 Chevrolet for RSS Racing, will make his final start of the year at Kentucky Speedway in July.
The plan is for Green plans to return driving in 2020, depending on funding and sponsorship. The surgery will require the driver to step out of the cock pit, but not away from the track.
The 2000 NASCAR Xfinity Series champion will return to the track at Iowa Speedway in late July, where he will be a crew chief for RSS Racing. The team is working on plans for the remainder of the season and will be announced at a later date.
Green has scored three top-10 finishes in the last four years, including earlier this year in the season opener at Daytona Int’l Speedway, where he finished seventh.
