Today George announced that he will not be competing in the Camping World Truck Series for 2013 due to an ankle injury that he suffered while snowmobiling.

He had twelve starts last year for Childress in the Camping World Truck Series with a nine place finish at Talladega and a pole award at Kansas.

Members of the media did pursue comments from Richard Childress Racing, but none have been returned so far.

Speculation is that Childress will shut down the team for this season leaving the entire crew without a job sending them back to the unemployment fields of NASCAR.
