    Per his Twitter page


    After a rough weekend this past weekend, my Father and I are not seeing eye to eye. It has been decided to put racing behind us and move on with our lives. Iím sorry to all of my fans friends and sponsors that have invested into us. This is a tough post to make being this was such a big part of my life and my dream. But I made some mistakes and have to live with the consequences. I will be back on track somehow someway. Just not now.

    This may or may not be the case but I think these drivers dive in to the national stuff way too soon and it bites them more often that not. From recent posts on his facebook, it seems like his performance on the track has been a hot topic. A lot of these guys need to hire team managers IMO. There's no reason an inexperienced guy like him should be running on a national circuit. He would have benefited running regional stuff and he!! tour stuff in Illinois and surrounding states gaining valuable seat time, and then chase a national tour in 2-3 years.

    I saw Don selling literally everything on Facebook yesterday and figured something was up.

    Yep always best to make big decisions when youíre emotional. Maybe in a day or two theyíll reconcile. Personally, I think this (not a nice word)(not a nice word)(not a nice word)(not a nice word) heat makes all of us more irritable.

    Being in business with your family isnít for everyone, and what Kyle and his dad were doing is a business.
    Hopefully they can get it behind them and get back to being just father and sonÖ..
    Where is the move over flag when you need it?????

    Smells like a decision made in the heat of the moment but Don sure as sh!t has everything for sale. I see Kenny Wallace has already made comments on it.

    I wondered when I saw the stuff for sale. I agree with the "jumping in too soon" point of view, but what parent doesn't want to give their kid all they can? Yes, family...the heat...if the stuff doesn't sell fast I'm sure we'll see them back around home later this season, at least we can hope (maybe even with Don driving). Good luck to each of them either way.

    ^^^ I saw it on Facebook. There are all sorts of groups, like "Dirt Late Models For Sale" and about every variation you can imagine. Used to check out a website called "Racingjunk.com" but am not sure if they posted it on there as well.

    Don often has stuff for sale, so I didn't think too much of it until I saw the car (which they just picked up late last year).

    Dudes who arenít cut out for national touring should never go national touring. These complete shutdowns happen a ton because dudes who donít even run well regionally think theyíre going to compete night in and night out with the best in the nation.

    All this isn't helping to keep the sport growing and add to the diminishing car counts. . .

    Neither is cost of motors, cars, engineering and fuel
