The last 10 yrs I’ve been serving in the @USNavy to protect all of our freedoms. So it’s nice to get a chance to enjoy one of those freedoms, and that’s racing in the @nascar Truck Series at Daytona this Friday @RBR_Teams #NASCAR #NAVYtoNASCAR pic.twitter.com/YQSuKXF74o

The Carrollton, Texas driver told TobyChristie.com that he will also participate in additional races for RBR during the 2021 season, with that announcement coming at a later date.
Iwuji spent four races in the Truck Series in 2020 with Reaume Brothers Racing, finishing a best of 22nd at Michigan. The Navy Commander even dove into NASCAR broadcasting as a pit reporter for NBC on occasion, drawing unique parallels between racing and his time in the military for a new perspective for a television audience.
Additionally, he spent a handful of races in the NASCAR Xfinity Series with both MBM and B.J. McLeod Motorsports. Iwuji scored his best career Xfinity series finish of 23rd at Texas late in the season.
The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season will go green on Friday, February 12th at 7:30 PM EST for the NextEra Energy 250. Coverage will on FOX Sports 1 and the FOX Sports App.
