David Green, whose future in the No. 96 American Equipment/Caterpillar Chevrolet was in serious doubt after Saturday's Pontiac Excitement 400 at Richmond International Raceway, was officially let go by the team Wednesday.

"Our performance over the past two seasons failed to meet our expectations," said team owner Howard "Buz" McCall. "A change was in the best interest of both parties. David Green has done a commendable job in making the transition from the NASCAR Busch Grand National ranks to the Winston Cup Series, and we thank him for his effort. David is a good driver with good skills. We wish him the best."

Birmingham, Ala., native Hut Stricklin has been named to drive McCall's Caterpillar Chevrolet in Sunday's Miller Lite 400 at Michigan Speedway on June 14.

According to team spokesman John Bisci, any plans the team has for a driver after Michigan are on a day-by-day basis.
