In a telephone conversation with ESPN on Wednesday, Johanna Long said she and her Mike Affarano Racing team have decided not to race during the season-opening Speedweeks events at Daytona this month as originally hoped.

"The car we planned to run did not have the necessary updates that are required to pass the NASCAR certification process," Long said. She said rather than rush the updates onto the car, the decision was made to pull out of the Alert Today Florida 300, which is scheduled for Feb. 21. Asked when the car would be ready and able to race, Long said, "It's hard to put a time frame on it. We're just trying to get as prepared as possible for when we do make our debut." The plan was to enter the #03 Chevy in the XFINITY event at Daytona even though no primary sponsor had been inked.(
