Yates' plans put Busch driver Stephen Leicht in job-search mode at season's end

Robert Yates Racing has released Busch Series driver Stephen Leicht effective at the end of the season. Leicht drives RYR's No. 90 Ford and remains under contract for the remainder of the season.

Leicht, ninth in the series standings, earned his first series victory this season, winning at Kentucky Speedway.

"I have had a great run with RYR. Robert and Doug gave me my start in NASCAR and I have learned a lot from them. I wish them nothing but the best in 2008,” Leicht said.
