MB Motorsports, one of the original NASCAR Camping World Truck Series’ teams, is set to return to Daytona International Speedway for the first time in four years. 19 year old Abingdon, VA native Caleb Roark will pilot the #63 Mittler Bros. Machine & Tool Ford F-150 in his maiden voyage at the world famous superspeedway.
Even though Roark hasn’t even turned 20 yet, he has over 13 years experience on the track, having raced since about 6 years of age in various series, including Go Karts, Champ Karts, Pure4, Mod4, Limited Late Model, Late Model, ISCARS Dash Touring and NCWTS. Last season Roark competed in three NCWTS races, completing 98.1% of his laps, improving on his start each time, while scoring a best finish of 19th at Martinsville.
“I’m very lucky to have the opportunity to go to Daytona with Mike Mittler’s MB Motorsports crew,” says Roark. “He has such an amazing record for working with young drivers and to be able to add my name to that list is unbelievable to me. Jason Miller, who I’ve been working with for a long time, will also be there to help guide me through this initial trip to Daytona.”
Mittler is confident in his young driver. “Caleb’s got a lot of talent. Every race is a learning experience, no matter how long you’ve been driving, but I feel confident Caleb will do us all proud Friday night in Daytona.”
