Marco Andretti, who finished 19th in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series event at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course earlier this year for Spire Motorsports, will return to the seat of the No. 7 Chevrolet Silverado for the final two events of the season.

Andretti, who also won the 2022 SRX Series championship, says he enjoyed his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut, and is excited to get acclimated to ovals in a NASCAR vehicle.

“I had a lot of fun driving for Spire Motorsports at Mid-Ohio,” Andretti said in a team release. “The end result wasn’t reflective of the pace we had out of the gate, but I learned a lot about how these trucks handle and what to expect. I want to expand my limited stock car experience and get some laps in on the bigger ovals. Homestead and Phoenix are going to be very different from the ovals I raced with in the SRX Series and, obviously, much different from Mid-Ohio, which is what I want.”

Kin Insurance will serve as the primary sponsor for the 36-year-old Andretti next weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway, while Parity Week by Gainbridge will serve as the primary sponsorship partner in the season finale at Phoenix Raceway.

Here is a rendering of both paint schemes that Andretti will run:

Spire Motorsports, which recently finalized an acquisition of the Kyle Busch Motorsports NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series team, is excited to have Andretti back.

“Spire Motorsports is thrilled to have Marco Andretti back in our No. 7 Chevy Silverado for the final two NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series races of 2023,” said Spire Motorsports co-owner Jeff Dickerson. “He qualified and ran really well at Mid-Ohio and if a couple of things fall our way, he has a much better finish. Marco has plenty of experience at both tracks in an Indy Car and there’s going to be a learning curve for him in the truck, but we expect him to do well and have some fun. We all know what’s at stake when the name Andretti is above the door. At the same time, we’re proud to welcome Kin Insurance for Homestead and to highlight an initiative as important as Parity Week by Gainbridge at the season finale at Phoenix Raceway.”

In addition to his lone NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series start, Andretti made on NASCAR Xfinity Series start a season ago, which resulted in a 36th-place finish.

Andretti is a two-time race winner in the NTT IndyCar Series.
