Kaden Honeycutt on Saturday’s Race at Atlanta Motor Speedway: “I can’t wait to get on track with this Niece Motorsports group in Atlanta,” said Honeycutt. “I know the team has been working hard to prepare a fast Protect Your Melon Chevrolet. I’m really looking forward to this season, and getting more time in the Truck Series. I learned a lot in this race last season that I’ll be able to apply this weekend. We have high expectations as a team, so I’m looking forward to a strong run.”

By The Numbers: Saturday’s race marks Honeycutt’s 21st NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series start, and his second at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

2024 Season: Saturday’s race marks the first of twelve races this season for Honeycutt behind the wheel of the No. 45 Chevrolet Silverado.

“Thanks to Al Niece and everyone at Niece Motorsports for the opportunity to go racing in top-tier equipment this season,” said Honeycutt. “I’m looking forward to having more time in one of these Chevrolets and competing for an Owner’s Championship with this group.”

On the Truck: Honeycutt’s No. 45 Chevrolet Silverado will race with support from the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety and the “Buckle Up: Protect Your Melon” initiative that encourages drivers to always buckle up on roadways.

Recapping the Last Race: After leading the charge in practice on Thursday, Johnny Sauter advanced to the final round of Friday’s qualifying session, ending up with a second-place starting spot. At the drop of the green, Sauter took the lead, leading the first lap and ultimately winning the opening stage of the race. Sauter paced the field for 24 laps before being collected in one of the many accidents. The team could not repair the significant damage before the DVP clock expired, which left the No. 45 team with a 29th-place finish.

Sauter on Last Race at Daytona International Speedway: “We had a rocket ship,” said Sauter. “Really, we were in good position all night long and thought I made a good move at the end there and unfortunately when they wrecked, I just had nowhere to go. Hats off to Niece Motorsports for bringing a hot rod.”
