Halmar Friesen Racing will field a second entry in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series’ inaugural running of the Pinty’s Truck Race on Dirt at Bristol Motor Speedway later this month, fielding the No. 62 Toyota Tundra for Jessica Friesen in her first attempt at a NASCAR National Series event.
Jessica and Stewart Friesen will become the second husband and wife duo to race in a NASCAR National Series event together and the first couple to do so as teammates. Patty Moise and Elton Sawyer were the first husband and wife duo to participate in a NASCAR National Series event together, running many races together in the early 1990s.
For Halmar Friesen Racing, it’s the first-time that the organization will field multiple trucks out of their facility.
The No. 62 Toyota Tundra will have sponsorship from Halmar International, Parks Companies, A. Colarusso & Son, Corr Park Merchandising, Tammy 10 Media, Hills Racing, One Zee Tees, and CASP – The Council of Autism Service Providers.
“I’ve been racing Spring Cars and Modifieds on dirt for my entire racing career, and it’s amazing to get an opportunity to compete at this level. I’m looking forward to the experience of driving a truck for the first time. The fact that this race is happening on dirt is really exciting. I couldn’t ask for a better group to work with than the team we’ve assembled at HFR. I want to thank everyone who has made this possible including our team owner Chris Larsen and all of our other sponsors who have supported me in the past both in Dirt Modifieds and Sprint Cars who have come back on board for this race.”
