John Hunter Nemechek will once again return to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series full-time in 2022, piloting the No. 4 Toyota Tundra for Kyle Busch Motorsports, the team announced on Thursday.
“I came to Kyle Busch Motorsports because it was an opportunity to get back to victory lane — I accomplished my goal of being here for wins and I’m excited to be coming back for more next year,” Nemechek said. “With the support of Kyle and Samantha, everyone at KBM and everyone at Toyota and TRD, I’ve been able to experience the thrill of victory alongside my long-term partners ROMCO, Fire Alarm Services, Pye-Barker Fire & Safety and Safeway, and we were also able to get Mobil 1 back to victory lane for KBM. We have some unfinished business left trying to bring the championship trophy home to KBM this year and then we’ll go to work on the brand new 2022 Tundra so that we can compete for more wins and another championship next year.”
Eric Philips will return to the pit box of the No. 4 Toyota Tundra next season, as the team looks to capture additional victories and a championship in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
“It’s been refreshing to see John Hunter get the No. 4 Tundra back out front leading laps, winning races and competing for a championship this year like it had in the past and it’s important for us that we are able to keep him in that seat for another season,” Kyle Busch said. “In addition to the accomplishments of the No. 4 team this season, the efforts that John Hunter and Eric have put in behind the scenes have helped keep that winning edge of performance in our whole program. I’m pumped to have both of them back leading the charge at KBM as we roll out the new 2022 Tundra TRD Pro’s next season to continue our winning ways!”
With two races left in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season, the regular-season champion leads the series in wins, top-fives, average finish, and average running position. The 24-year-old is also tied for the most top-10s on the season and ranks second in laps led. Nemechek has collected victories at Las Vegas, Richmond, Charlotte, Texas, and Pocono.
Additional sponsorship announcements and the remainder of Kyle Busch Motorsports’ driver lineup for the 2022 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season are forthcoming.
