Dean Thompson will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut this weekend at Phoenix Raceway and he has been added to the Niece Motorsports driver lineup for the 2022 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season and he’ll run the full schedule.

“To say I’m excited for next season is definitely an understatement,” said Thompson in a Niece Motorsports press release. “I’m honored to have the chance to drive these Niece Motorsports Chevrolets. I’ve enjoyed getting to know Carson and am looking forward to having him as a teammate. Thank you to Al Niece and everyone at Niece Motorsports for the opportunity. A huge thank you to Thompson Pipe Group for their continued support. I’m looking forward to the chance to make them all proud next season.”

Thompson Pipe Group, which has supported Thompson’s career to this point, will move forward with the young racer as he competes in his first full-time Truck Series season.

Thompson, 20, has made six starts in the ARCA Menards Series West this season. He has scored two poles, one top-five and two top-10 finishes driving the No. 51 machine, which is owned by Maureen Bruncati.

The California-native also scored an eighth-place finish in the ARCA Menard Series event at Kansas Speedway a couple of weeks ago in the No. 40 car owned by Cody Efaw.

The release from Niece Motorsports does not announce which truck number Thompson will run in 2022. That is expected to be revealed at a later time.
