Sam Hunt Racing will field a second entry in the season-opener at Daytona International Speedway, bringing both the No. 24 and No. 26 Toyota Supra to the 2.5-mile superspeedway.
Ryan Truex will drive the No. 26 Circle B Diecast Toyota Supra at Daytona, with Allen Hart, the team’s technical director, calling the shots on the pit box. Jeffrey Earnhardt will pilot the No. 24 ForeverLawn Toyota Supra in the season-opener, with Andrew Abbott serving as crew chief.
“Our entire journey has been based around calculated growth,” said Sam Hunt. “Running two cars at Daytona next month is another exciting step towards continuing to grow as a company and team. Having both Ryan and Jeffrey in our Toyota GR Supras will make for a fun start to 2022. They were Busch East teammates when their careers started at DEI – so it’s cool to see it come full circle at SHR.”
Daytona will mark the start of the multi-race campaign for Earnhardt, ForeverLawn, and Sam Hunt Racing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Earnhardt will make his 17th start in NASCAR’s top-three series at Daytona International Speedway.
“I’m really excited to head to Daytona with Sam Hunt Racing in the ForeverLawn GR Supra” said Earnhardt. “Having Ryan Truex as a teammate for this race is a great benefit, and I’m looking forward to kicking off the new season with a strong finish.”
ForeverLawn, an innovative synthetic grass solutions company, will serve as the primary sponsor of the No. 24 Toyota GR Supra.
“We’re so excited to partner with Jeffrey again this season, and we can’t think of a better way to start our new partnership with Sam Hunt Racing than at Daytona,” says Derek Taylor, ForeverLawn’s NASCAR liaison. “We’re confident in Jeffrey’s ability and excited to watch his success with the support and quality equipment the SHR team offers. The Black and Green Grass Machine is ready to race–Daytona, here we come!”
Additional details regarding Sam Hunt Racing’s driver lineup and race schedule for the 2022 season, will come at a later date.
