Last season, the 20-year-old driver competed in three NASCAR Truck Series events behind the wheel of a second entry for Halmar Friesen Racing, in which he scored three top-20 results, including a seventh in his debut at IRP.
At Atlanta, the Bahama, North Carolina-native will serve as a teammate to Dean Thompson, Corey Heim, Tanner Gray, and multi-time NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series winner John Hunter Nemechek.
Additionally, Riggs joins a driver lineup for TRICON Garage’s fifth entry which is set to include Jason White (USA), Kaz Grala, Jesse Love, and William Sawalich. Additional drivers for the No. 1 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro are expected to be announced at a later date.
