“Clay has a phenomenal track record at Rockingham,” said Benton, “and we had a great deal of success together (in 2011). When Scott (Riggs) got the great opportunity to run the entire Cup race at Texas, Clay was the first call we made.
“We are excited about our chances at Rockingham.”
The driver shares the owner’s enthusiasm.
“Rockingham is such a great race track and the trucks are so much fun to race,” said Rogers. “I am thrilled to be working with (crew chief) Mike (Hester) and the entire RBR team again.”
Rogers finished 20th in the 2011 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series standings driving for RBR despite only starting 15 of the 25 races that year. Rogers had his career-best third -place finish in NCWTS that year at the season-opening race in Daytona. The team left Daytona as the points leader.
“Hopefully, we can find some more of that magic at Rockingham this year.”
Rogers will be pulling double duty this weekend at Rockingham. He is also entered in the UARA-STARS Late Model event that will run on Saturday. Rogers is the most recent UARA winner at Rockingham.
