In the first eleven races he had three top-20 finishes and finished twenty-three in points. However, he stepped aside at Sonoma in what the team described as a planned move rather than a mid-season driver change Colin Garret took over, despite not being cleared to race due to delays in his drug test and Josh Bilicki would fill.
