Ryan Truex to enter Daytona Truck race with Turner Scott Motorsports
Ryan Truex will drive the Turner Scott Motorsports Chevrolet for the Feb. 21 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season opener at Daytona International Speedway.
This will mark Truex’s second start with the organization. He is the two-time NASCAR K&N Pro Series East champion. Truex will be sponsored by Bass Pro Shops in the race.
Truex, who won the East series championship in 2009 and 2010, made his NCWTS debut in 2012, running two events and earning a best finish of ninth at Phoenix International Raceway. The 21-year-old made his debut with the team in the 2013 Truck race in Daytona, finishing 28th after a blown tire took him out of contention with nine laps remaining. Truex also made his Sprint Cup Series debut in 2013, running three events for what is now HScott Motorsports, owned by TSM co-owner Harry Scott Jr.
"I’m really excited to be running for Turner Scott Motorsports again this year," said Truex. "Last year was a lot of fun and we had a really good truck. Unfortunately, we had a tire go out in the end, but we were making our way toward the front. I’m looking to do the same thing again this year and stay up front this time. I think it’s really cool that Bass Pro Shops is coming on board again and helping me out. I appreciate that they wanted to do this again after doing this race with me last year."
