Colby Howard will return to the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series later this month at Darlington Raceway, making his second start of the season in the No. 1 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro for race-winning organization TRICON Garage.

The 22-year-old driver first joined forces with the organization at the superspeedway-adjacent track of Atlanta Motor Speedway earlier this year, where he piloted his Project Hope Foundation Toyota Tundra to a 17th-place result, after starting inside the top-15.

Coastal Sports Cards will serve as the primary marketing partner of Howard and TRICON Garage at Darlington Raceway, a track that the Simpsonville, South Carolina native calls home.

Across the NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, Howard has recorded a total of seven starts at the 1.366-mile oval, with a best finish of 13th, twice, in back-to-back seasons driving first for CR7 Motorsports (2021) and then for McAnally-Hilgemann Racing (2022).

Before the start of the 2024 season, Howard had spent the last two years competing full-time in the NASCAR Truck Series, where in 52 career starts he managed to record a career-best fourth-place at Daytona International Speedway last February, one of four career top-10 finishes.

Prior to moving into the NASCAR Truck Series, Howard spent two seasons running a majority schedule for JD Motorsports in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, where in 43 career starts he managed to record a best finish of 12th at Daytona International Speedway.

In the first seven races of 2024, TRICON Garage has had six different drivers behind the wheel of the No. 1 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro — Toni Breidinger, Colby Howard, Christopher Bell, William Sawalich, Jack Hawksworth, and Kris Wright. Brett Moffitt will be the seventh driver of the entry in Saturday’s 200-mile contest at Kansas Speedway.

The entry has scored a pair of top-10 results this season, first at Las Vegas with Christopher Bell and then a sixth-place run at Circuit of The Americas (COTA) with Hawksworth.
