Allison Thorson of ThorSport also confirmed that the organization will field four trucks, however, the drivers for those entries are to be announced at a later date.
Since 2013, ThorSport has claimed four NASCAR Camping World Truck Series titles with three at the hands of Crafton and the fourth coming from Rhodes.
The Kentucky-born driver had just two wins in 2021, but a win in Phoenix solidified his spot as the series champion. Crafton failed to reach victory lane in 2021 but made the Championship 4 in his No. 88 Menards Tundra.
Grant Enfinger, who spent time in the No. 98 entry, will move to GMS Racing in a two-year deal while Johnny Sauter’s plans for 2022 remain unclear.
