After 12 races this season, you will no longer see Scott Riggs in the No. 36 car for Tommy Baldwin Racing.

The reason being because Scott Riggs does not want to start the car and then park it. He, like everyone else who races in the Sprint Cup series, wants to race the car to the finish and to try to get a win under his belts.

The team had an impressive start to the season by starting in the first two races, and then failed to qualify three races in a row before qualifying for the last six of seven races.

The economy is tough right now in the United States and worldwide and the reason why the team needs to start the car and then park it is because they do not have the money to continue on racing at the race.

Mike Skinner has been named to replace Riggs in the No. 36 car.
