TriStar Motorsports announced Frday that Eric McClure will drive the No. 19 Hefty BlackOut/Reynolds Impala for this weekend's 5-Hour Energy 200 at Dover International Speedway while Mike Bliss will move to the No. 14 TriStar Motorsports Impala.

This decision was made to eliminate all risk of not having the sponsored TriStar Motorsports car in Saturday's field. 

"This was strictly a business decision," TriStar Motorsports owner Mark Smith said. "Eric has done a great job for us this year but unfortunately we have had some mechanical issues that have put us in this position. We know Eric could have gotten his car back in the points, but it's very important to us to have our sponsored car in each race."
