Natalie Decker was originally scheduled to run the Wawa 200 at Daytona International Speedway Friday evening, but a sponsor approval issue has changed the plans.

“I will not be racing Daytona because my sponsor is not cleared yet to be on a car in NASCAR,” Decker explained in a tweet on Thursday.

Patrick Emerling will replace Decker.

BJ McLeod Motorsports posted a rendering of Emerling’s Daytona entry, lacking a sponsor.
