Cameron Hayley fell just short in his search for victory lane in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2016.

Now, less than three months after the season, Hayley finds himself in search of a 2017 ride.

Hayley, 20, confirmed on Twitter late Thursday night that he doesn’t currently have any races lined up for 2017 after failing to find the sponsorship to maintain his place in ThorSport Racing’s (TR) No. 13 Toyota.

The tweet reads: “(ThorSport Racing owners) Duke and Rhonda Thorson have treated (me) like family for the past couple years and I owe them a ton! I currently have no ride for this year but I am still holding out for the best.”

A native of Calgary, Alta., Hayley came to TR ahead of the 2015 season after making limited starts for the now-defunct Turner Scott Motorsports in 2014, competing with support from his family’s Cabinets by Hayley company.

Hayley showed glimpses of promise in his two-year stint with TR, earning 10 top fives including two runner-up results in 2016 at Atlanta Motor Speedway and Pocono Raceway. The Canadian fell just short of the inaugural Truck Series Chase, ending the regular season in eighth before dropping to 10th in the standings over the final seven races. w
