Bayley Currey on Racing at Pocono: “I’m eager to get back to the Truck Series,” said Currey. “It’s always a lot of fun to drive these trucks. Niece Motorsports has proven that they are a team to contend with this year, so I’m excited to have the opportunity to join the team. Pocono is definitely a challenging track, but I’m looking forward to it.”
Dylan Lupton will climb in a DGR-Crosley prepared Toyota Tundra this weekend for the first of six races with the team. The 25-year-old Wilton, Calif. native will drive the team's No. 5 Crosley Brands entry at Chicagoland (Ill.) Speedway, marking the first time that DRG-Crosley has used this number in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series.
Hattori Racing Enterprises driver Austin Hill was made available to media at Talladega Superspeedway:
“That was a big confidence boost for me. To go out there and run up front with the 18 team was a lot of fun for me to go out and race the Xfinity Series guys, like (Justin) Allgaier. We were racing side-by-side for most of the day. It was a lot of fun. We had a good time out there. I am excited to get back out there with them in New Hampshire, but right now I am focused on the Truck Series.”
Creed returns to the site of his first career NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series start this week in Eldora.

Reid Wilson on Racing at Martinsville: “I’ve been itching to get on track this year,” said Wilson. “I’m really looking forward to this weekend and making my first start with this team. I’m excited that it’s at a track that I have turned some laps at. Martinsville is definitely a tough track. I’m hoping that we can stay out of trouble and keep our nose clean. If we can do that, I feel confident that we can be in contention for a solid finish this weekend.”
