BRISTOL, Va. (WCYB) — NASCAR officials have indicated that Noah Gragson's month-long suspension has been lifted and is cleared to resume activity.
Gragson was suspended on Aug. 5 for violating the conduct section of the NASCAR rule book based on actions taken on social media. The suspension from NASCAR came shortly after he was suspended by his own team - Legacy Motor Club. Five days later, Gragson announced he parted ways with the team after his request.
Gragson was just 21 races into his rookie Cup Series campaign with the No. 42 Chevrolet team before the suspension. Three other drivers stepped in as substitutes for the No. 42 following Gragson's leave. Carson Hocevar is scheduled to drive the No. 42 at Bristol on Saturday.
Gragson tweeted this on Tuesday in gratitude of NASCAR for lifting the suspension:
"I want to express my sincere gratitude to NASCAR for reinstating me. Over the past several weeks, I have dedicated myself to personal growth and reflection, and I believe I have become a better person because of it. I couldn't have done it without the support of my family and the NASCAR industry.
