JD Motorsports and Efland part ways

March 27, 2013, Staff report,

The driver of the No. 4 Nationwide car was with the team for two seasons

JD Motorsports has parted ways with driver Danny Efland immediately, according to a team release.

Efland drove the No. 4 Nationwide Series car for parts of the past two seasons, though not on a full-time basis. The 24-year-old from Irmo, S.C., drove the vehicle in 18 events last year, and in the opener at Daytona this season. His best finish over that stretch was 13th, recorded twice, at both Daytona events in 2012.

The parting is amicable, according to the team, which plans to put another driver in the car.

"I would like to thank Danny for all his time and effort this year," team owner Johnny Davis said. "This is a move to make our organization better. As a team. We need to constantly improve our communication in order to improve our finishes on the track. I believe this change will make both the No. 01 and the No. 4 Chevrolet teams stronger throughout the year."

JD Motorsports' other entry, the No. 01 car, will continue to be driven by Mike Wallace.
