ThorSport Racing will switch away from Ford Performance ahead of the 2021 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, the team announced on Monday.

That is all that the team announced, and an announcement of their new manufacturer is expected soon.

This past season, ThorSport made the playoffs with three of their four teams. Grant Enfinger led the team with three wins and a Championship 4 appearance, while Matt Crafton and Ben Rhodes each recorded one win.

Enfinger finished fourth in the championship standings, Crafton was fifth and Rhodes was seventh. The team’s fourth driver Johnny Sauter finished 13th in the title rankings.

Crafton won the 2019 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in a Ford F-150, despite not winning a race that year.

The organization, which has fielded Ford F-150s since the 2018 season, ran with Toyota as their manufacturer between 2012 and 2017, and ran as a Chevrolet organization before that.

Of the organization’s 21 victories, 13 of them have come with a Toyota badge on the front of their trucks. Additionally, two of Matt Crafton’s three championships have come as a Toyota driver.
