Clint Bowyer to Return to Camping World Truck Series at Kansas Speedway

For the first time since 2014, Clint Bowyer will compete in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Competing in Friday evening’s Toyota Tundra 250 at Kansas Speedway, the Sprint Cup Series veteran will pilot the No. 24 truck for GMS Racing.

Bowyer, 36, has not been in a Truck Series race since filling in for an injured John Wes Townley at Pocono in a last-minute deal in 2014. That day, he led 10 laps en route to a fourth-place finish. However, he has not been in a truck since then.

Competing for GMS Racing, Bowyer will be entered in a fourth truck for the organization. He will join Ben Kennedy, who signed a minimum 10-race deal with GMS Racing last week, as the team’s newest pilots.

Bowyer is coming off his second top 10 of the season in Sprint Cup competition with HScott Motorsports, finishing eighth at Talladega. He currently sits 27th in the series standings, which is the lowest he’s been 10 races into a season since he started full-time racing in 2006.

In 13 career Truck Series starts, Bowyer has three victories, two of which were with Kevin Harvick, Inc. The other triumph was his first in the Truck Series with David Dollar in 2006.

GMS Racing has two wins since its inception in 2013. The first victory came with Austin Dillon last year at New Hampshire, with the second coming at Daytona in this year’s season-opener with Johnny Sauter.

By now, he might be wishing he had returned to the Trucks for the full season this year.
