Spencer Boyd officially to the #20 truck for Young's motorsports
MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Hattori Racing Enterprises (HRE) team owner Shige Hattori announced today that the organization is pleased to welcome Austin Hill to drive the No. 16 Toyota Tundra in 2019. Hill, a native of Winston, Georgia, joins HRE’s team, led by crew chief Scott Zipadelli, to compete for the organization’s second consecutive NASCAR Gander Outdoor Truck Series (NGOTS) championship.
They sure got the sponsorship figured out this time.
Hill is a good driver also
I've always called him the big ol kid myself
Gus Dean joins Young's Motorsports for 2019 Truck season
Young’s Motorsports announced Wednesday that Dean, a two-time ARCA winner, will compete fulltime in the 2019 Gander Outdoors Truck Series, driving the No. 12 Chevrolet.
In addition to competing in the season-opening Truck Series race, Dean will also run the Feb. 9 ARCA season opener at Daytona with Win-Tron and compete during the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna (Fla.) Speedway with Dean Racing.
What brings a new sponsor into NASCAR?
Growing the stache back
Going for the "Jeff Gordon " look.
Youngs Motorsports adds another truck
Should be a good story to watch. Young Todd had a lot of hype coming up but he has had a couple of up and down seasons. Too young to run all of the races the first year, and blown away by all of Sauter's and Moffitt's wins his second. After Gragson who finished second last year moved up to Xfinity, he should be KBM's number 1 driver. I don't see young Harrison Burton in that spot.
Glad to see this little so in so back this year and he's running more races also. He's a wheel man and they show up fast.
Compared to 9 races in 2018, sounds good to me.
Trucks testing at Atlanta
Peters will drive for Niece Motorsports in the first three races.
NASCAR should just let him run Vegas (hometown) and Charlotte. Definitely no short tracks, those kids need to beat up on each other, without the distraction of a Cup driver with nothing to lose come down to wreck their trucks...
Martinsville is the only short track on that list. Texas and Atlanta are the same 1.5 mile as Vegas and Charlotte.
I never said that Texas and Atlanta were short tracks. Note the period. "Definitely no short tracks" stands on its own.
What I did do was let KyBu run the Vegas track for hometown appeal and as an ambassador of sorts; and Charlotte is also a home race with ties to KyBu and I could see him wanting to run there.
He still should be full-time. Peters is quite the handy driver and a good measuring stick for the youngsters.
That was awfully big of you.
I don't think NASCAR is going to get into telling individual drivers which individual tracks they can run in each series.
Happens a lot in the trucks. Benson was better than Peters and he was shuffled out, now Sauter.
The Truck Series Schedule is out
Man, it must be nice being Matt Crafton.
a lot of it is business. Sauter was like 40 and Moffitt is much younger and he brought a little money compared to Sauter and he's good. It wasn't enough money for Hattori, but he got a pretty good driver out of the deal all said and done. Hill was able to attract a sponsor to help him. It is a shame the trucks haven't found a place for Sauter though. He wins races still and is plenty good, but times are tough.
Sharp Gal, she will be good.
Triple Truck Challenge to give drivers shot at $500,000 bonus
Already considered one of the most intense and exciting series in auto racing, the Gander Outdoors Truck Series will get an additional jolt of adrenaline in 2019 thanks to the new Triple Truck Challenge, a three-race program that provides drivers in the Truck Series an opportunity to win up to $500,000 in bonus money.
Slated for consecutive stops at Texas Motor Speedway (June 7), Iowa Speedway (June 15) and Gateway Motorsports Park (June 22), the Triple Truck Challenge will award a $50,000 bonus to the race winner of any one of the three events; win two of the three races and pocket an additional $150,000; win all three and collect a cool half a million dollars.
Good trio of races to do it with.
yeah for sure, that is going to be a good contest. Intermediate, mid, and shortish track and they are one right after the other.
I wish CTMP was one of them, but it already has a reputation as a rough race so I guess the drivers don't need more motivation there.
might turn out to be a good little truck, they have good lineage, another GMS affiliate
Will ThorSport only run two trucks this year?
