In 2006, McFarland was hired to drive the number 88 United States Navy Chevrolet for Dale Earnhardt, Jr. in the NASCAR Busch Series. He got injured while running in the top 10 at the Milwaukee Mile and missed the next two races at Daytona International Speedway and Chicagoland Speedway. He had dislocated his shoulder and also injured some of the muscles around it.

Following the Kroger 200 Mark was released from his driving duties of the #88 U.S. Navy Chevrolet. Martin Truex Jr. would drive the car in the next race at Watkins Glen International and Robby Gordon drove it in subsequent races at Michigan International Speedway and California Speedway. Shane Huffman, also from the Hooters Pro Cup series, drove the remaining races in the #88 and is slated for a full Busch Series schedule in the car for 2007.
