Joe Gibbs Racing will replace Carl Edwards by promoting Xfinity Series champion Daniel Suarez.

Carl Edwards will not race in 2017 and is leaving Joe Gibbs Racing, Fox Sports reported Tuesday.

Edwards is regarded as one of NASCAR’s top stars. He won 28 Cup Series races and amassed 124 top-finishes and 220 top 10s in 445 career starts. Twice he finished second in the championship standings, including losing to Tony Stewart on a tiebreaker in 2011.

The 37-year-old Edwards also was one of four drivers to qualify for the 2016 championship finale, a race where he would lead the most laps before contact with Joey Logano caused him to crash-out with 10 laps remaining. After the accident, a disappointed Edwards walked slowly from where his car was stopped in Turn 1 to Logano’s pit stall where he absolved Logano of any wrongdoing and wished Logano’s team luck.

No reasons was cited for Edwards’ sudden retirement. JGR will name rookie Daniel Suarez to replace Edwards as driver of its No. 19 Toyota, according to Fox Sports. The 24-year-old Suarez is the reigning Xfinity Series champion, the first foreign driver to win a NASCAR national series title.
