I can't wait to hit the track for the first time this season and hope to have a strong showing for the 40 team."
Timothy Peters on Racing at Las Vegas: “I really like racing at Vegas,” said Peters. “It’s my favorite 1.5-mile track on the schedule. I’ve had great success over the years there and look forward to carrying the momentum we have from Daytona and Atlanta as well. I can’t wait to hit the race track for practice Thursday afternoon with the TrüNorth™/Paul Jr. and Friends of Jaclyn Silverado.”
Ross Chastain on Racing at Dover: “It feels like forever since I’ve been in one of these trucks, and I’m ready to go. Dover is definitely a challenging track, but it’s one that I’ve always enjoyed. This Niece Motorsports team has been working hard all season long, so I know we’ll have another strong truck for Friday’s race.”
The fifth race of the 2019 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series race will take place this weekend on the mile-and-a-half track of Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas.

Ross Chastain on Racing at Texas: “I can’t wait to get this TrüNorth™/Paul Jr. Designs Chevrolet on the track,” said Chastain. “I’ve had this one circled on my calendar for a while. Everyone at Niece Motorsports has been working extra hard on this truck and I’m excited to get to be the one behind the wheel. We had a great race last week in Martinsville, and I feel strongly that we will run up front again this week in Al Niece’s back yard.”
