Bobby Labonte Leaves TRG Motorsports

NASCAR champion Bobby Labonte has terminated his contract with TRG Motorsports.

Labonte says he is exploring his opportunties for the remainder of this season in all three of NASCAR's national series.

Labonte says he wants to compete for wins, which he's not been able to do in the Number 71 Chevrolet. Labonte doesn't have a single top-10 finish through 16 races and his highest finish this season is 21st.

Labonte was the 2000 Cup Series champion.
His last victory was in 2003 with Joe Gibbs Racing.

The HQ thinks Labonte can still get wins if given a quality car, but he hasn't been given one of those in quite some time. In this particular economy, it may be a difficult task to accomplish...

Here's Labonte in happier times...
