Camden Murphy, a Monster Jam superstar and budding stock car racer, will get behind the wheel of the No. 08 SS Green Light Racing machine for the Pennzoil 150 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course on August 12th.
The young racer will have primary sponsorship from Garners Towing, an Indiana-based towing company that boasts six locations around the central Indiana and Indianapolis area.
Murphy, 27, has a total of seven starts in NASCAR Xfinity Series competition, but none since the 2019 season. The Illinois native is excited to get back behind the wheel in a reunion with the team that gave him his first NASCAR National Series start.
“I can’t wait to get back behind the wheel of a NASCAR Xfinity Series car and no better way to do it than at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and with the team I made my NASCAR Debut with back in 2014, SS Green Light Racing,” Murphy said in a team press release. “Not to mention having a great partner like Garners Towing makes the weekend that much more special. I can’t thank Bobby Dotter enough for the opportunity and Jamie Garner for coming on board for this incredible weekend at such a historic racetrack.”
Like, Murphy, the SS Green Light Racing team is excited about the pairing.
“I have been a part of Cam’s NASCAR career ever since the beginning when he drove one of our trucks. I’m so proud and excited to have him back and in our car at Indy to see how well he does,” SS Green Light Racing team owner Bobby Dotter said.
Murphy’s best career NASCAR Xfinity Series finish was a 20th-place effort at Darlington Raceway in 2019 driving the No. 93 entry for RSS Racing.
The racer has also made 29 starts in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series with a best finish of 13th coming at the Daytona International Speedway Road Course in 2021 while piloting the No. 8 NEMCO Motorsports entry.
Murphy will look to snag his first-career NASCAR National Series top-10 finish in a couple of weeks.
