ThorSport Racing will continue to field the No. 66 truck during the 2023 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series season as the organization has tapped 16-year-old racer Conner Jones to run the machine in nine events this season.

According to a press release from ThorSport Racing, the deal with Jones is a multi-year agreement.

“It’s always been my dream to enter into the NASCAR Truck Series,” Jones said. “I’m thrilled to be signing a multi-year contract with ThorSport Racing. They have a rich history within the Truck Series, along with being proven Champions. This will be a great year for me to learn and gain more experience behind the wheel of a NASCAR Truck. I know I have a strong team and organization surrounding me.”

Jones will make his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut on April 14th at Martinsville Speedway.
