On Tuesday Morning, McAnally-Hilgemann Racing revealed that 2019 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West Champion Derek Kraus would return to the organization for the second consecutive season, piloting the No. 19 Toyota Tundra full-time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2021.
“We’re pleased to announce that Derek will be with the MHR team again in 2021,” said Bill McAnally. “He turned in a strong performance last year as a rookie on a first-year team. He and the team are working hard to build on their success as we move ahead.“
Matt Noyce will join the organization as crew chief of the No. 19, after serving as the crew chief for Ben Rhodes at ThorSport Racing the last two seasons.
“I’m really looking forward to my second season with MHR,” Kraus said. “Now I can take everything I learned from last year and take it into the races this season. I’m looking forward to being able to work with my new crew chief Matt Noyce, also. I feel like he will bring some great ideas to our team that will make us faster. I’m ready to get going.”
MHR will continue their technical partnership with Hattori Racing Enterprises for the 2021 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season. HRE is set to field the No. 16 Toyota Tundra for Austin Hill next season.
