Lawless Alan will join Niece Motorsports for a full-time schedule in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2022, piloting the No. 45 AUTOParkit Chevrolet Silverado, the team announced Thursday.
Alan, who will compete for the organization in Friday Night’s season-finale at Phoenix Raceway joins previously announced full-timers Carson Hocevar and Dean Thompson as Niece Motorsports’ three announced drivers for 2022.
“I am very excited to have the opportunity to run for a championship with Niece Motorsports next year,” said Alan. “Niece Motorsports is an organization that regularly contends for wins, and I am looking forward to contributing to their winning tradition. I am very thankful to have the opportunity to work with Niece and I’m really looking forward to driving the No. 45, AUTOParkit™ 2022 Chevrolet Silverado RST.”
The California-native has made eight starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this season, scoring a season-best result of 18th at Bristol Motor Speedway.
“This is another huge piece of the puzzle to fall into place for our organization next season,” said Niece Motorsports General Manager Cody Efaw. “Lawless brings a lot to the table. He’s raced in a lot of different disciplines, and I think that will really pay huge dividends for him next year. Our team is already working hard to prepare for next season. We’ve got a ton of young talent on our roster next year with Lawless, Dean [Thompson] and Carson [Hocevar]. We’re looking forward to it and ready for the challenge.”
Alan’s No. 45 will feature sponsorship from his long-time supporter, AUTOParkit.com. Since 2017, the part-time driver has been the official spokesperson for AUTOParkit and its sister companies: GarageFloor 24, AUTOChargit™, PARKSenty™, AUTOStorit™ and AUTODockit™.
“Lawless continues to impress us on the track and off,” said AUTOParkit Vice President of Sales Shawn Adams. “His participation in NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series has brought tremendous value to our brand. For 2022 we are thrilled to have him on a winning team and have him driving some of the best equipment in the Series. We’ve made a long-term commitment to Lawless, and we are looking forward to working with Niece Motorsports as we build our brand through involvement with NASCAR in 2022 and beyond.”
