Ryan Truex NCWTS Preview: Daytona International Speedway

Returning With a Vengeance…Making his return to Turner Scott Motorsports for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season opener, Ryan Truex will race for redemption in the No. 32 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet Silverado after a blown rear tire in the final laps of last year’s event took him out of contention for the win, resulting in an unfortunate 28th-place finish. Friday night’s NextEra Energy Resources 250 will mark Truex’s second start at the 2.5-mile historic speedway and his fourth-career NCWTS start.


This Week’s Silverado… Under the direction of Mike Hillman Jr., two-time championship-winning crew chief in the Truck Series, Truex and the No. 32 team will debut TSM-700, a brand new speedway truck fresh out of the wind tunnel.


Welcome Back Bass Pro Shops…Turner Scott Motorsports is pleased to have Truex and sponsor Bass Pro Shops back on board as partners for the NCWTS season kickoff at Daytona this weekend. Bass Pro Shops is one of America’s premier outdoor retailers, serving over 75 million sportsmen a year in retail stores across America and Canada, as well as online at BassPro.com.

Ryan Truex on Racing at Daytona International Speedway:

“I’m really excited to be back at Turner Scott Motorsports with Bass Pro Shops and have another shot at winning the truck race. I think that TSM has the best trucks out there and to get the chance to work with Mike Hillman Jr. makes me even more confident in our ability to win because we have very similar personalities. This will be my first time doing double-duty but I feel like the Cup car experience I’ve gained over the past few days will be really beneficial to my performance in the truck. I’ll be able to get out of my car and know what I need to do in my truck, and vice versa.”
