Christian Rose, who competes full-time in the ARCA Menards Series for AM Racing, will join the organization’s program in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, driving the No. 22 Ford F-150 at Richmond Raceway.
“This is an unbelievable moment,” said Rose. “Everyone at AM Racing has been incredible not only from the ARCA Menards Series side – but assisting in helping the transition to the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. It really is a dream come true.”
“Without a doubt, there will be pressure, but I am used to that,” added Rose. “Even with the pressure, I am incredibly thankful for the hard work of my AM Racing team, along with Secure Testing Services LLC. and Labworks USA for making Richmond possible.”
Through the opening five events of the ARCA Menards Series season, Rose sits fifth place in points, with two top-10 finishes to his credit on the season – a ninth at Kansas, and an eighth at Charlotte.
Secure Testing Services, a primary partner of Rose’s full-time effort in the ARCA Menards Series, will serve as the primary marketing partner of the West Virginia native’s NASCAR Truck Series debut.
“We are incredibly proud to be a part of Christian’s next chapter in his racing career,” offered Steve Pierson, president of Secure Testing Services LLC. “We have found our partnership with Christian and AM Racing to be extremely beneficial on the ARCA Menards Series platform but look forward to the opportunity to increase our brand awareness on the NASCAR spectrum in our backyard at Richmond and beyond”
Labworks USA, a consortium third-party administrator that provides truck drivers and carriers across America with compliance services for a wide range of DOT | FMCSA requirements, will serve as an associate partner of the entry.
“All of us at Labworks USA could not be more excited about our partnership with AM Racing and Christian Rose,” said Labworks USA CEO Walter Ford. “The first time I met Christian, he greeted me with a firm handshake and a look in the eye. Call me old school but this spoke volumes to his integrity and confidence both of which will continue to see him rocket up the ladder in NASCAR.”
Wade Moore, president of AM Racing, is excited about the progression of AM Racing’s newest development driver, and is looking forward to a successful weekend at Richmond.
“We are excited for the next step in his racing career,” offered Moore. “Christian has worked hard not only to become a respected contender in the ARCA Menards Series garage but works even harder behind the scenes to make sure his career will progress under the AM Racing banner for years to come.”
Across the regional and national divisions of the ARCA Menards Series, Christian Rose has put down a career-best finish of seventh place, which happened on two occasions – at Roseville in 2021, and Kansas in 2022.
“We have set goals for Richmond and I believe they are achievable,” Rose said about his goals for Richmond. “Staying focused and racing my competitors with respect is my number one priority. If we can do that, I do not see any reason we cannot deliver a strong and competitive finish.”
