Ross Chastain has been lighting it up on the NASCAR Cup Series side of things this season, as he has already scored his first two-career NASCAR Cup Series wins in just the opening 11 races of the year.
Now, Chastain will add four more NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts to his schedule this season, as he’ll once again pilot the No. 41 entry for Niece Motorsports.
On Tuesday, Niece Motorsports announced Dallas-based Worldwide Express as the primary sponsor for the additional races added to Chastain’s slate. Worldwide Express, of course, announced a multi-year, multi-race deal involving Chastain and Trackhouse Racing in the NASCAR Cup Series last month.
Chastain, 29, will run this weekend’s NCWTS event at Darlington Raceway and he’ll also run the May 20th event at Texas Motor Speedway, May 27th at Charlotte Motor Speedway and he’ll cap off the run with a June 11th race at Sonoma Raceway.
The Florida-native is excited to get back behind the wheel of a truck.
“I’m very excited to be a part of Worldwide Express’ growing commitment to NASCAR both in the Cup Series and Truck Series,” Chastain said. “It’s an honor to represent a first-class organization like Worldwide Express both on and off the track and I’m always looking forward to getting behind the wheel of a Niece Motorsports Chevrolet.”
Chastain said credit goes to his NASCAR Cup Series team — Trackhouse Racing — for allowing him to compete in other series.
“It’s a great opportunity for both sides and thanks to Trackhouse Racing for allowing me the opportunity to compete in the Truck Series with Niece and Worldwide Express.”
Chastain is a three-time winner in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series competition, all three of those wins have come in Niece Motorsports Chevrolet Silverados. In 2019, Chastain ran the full schedule for the team and finished the year second in the championship standings.
Chastain ran the No. 41 truck for Niece earlier this season at Atlanta Motor Speedway. After a tire issue, Chastain was credited with a 23rd-place finish.
