Frontstretch’s Truck Series content is presented by American Trucks
Howie DiSavino III will be behind the wheel for Win-Tron Racing in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series in 2020, the team announced Tuesday, Jan. 21.
DiSavino made two ARCA Menards Series starts for the team in 2019, with his best finish a 10th-place effort at Elko Speedway.
The 18-year-old will make his Truck Series debut at Richmond Raceway in April. He’ll follow that up with select starts in both Truck and ARCA competition.
“It… means the world to me to be able to make my NASCAR debut in my hometown at Richmond Raceway,” DiSavino said in the release. “I started racing at Southside Speedway and Dominion [Raceway]. Through all of those races, I knew it was my dream to make it to NASCAR. Now it’s starting to sink in. I’m especially thankful for the support of my family. I know I’ll be making them proud.”
DiSavino’s first on-track appearance in 2020 will be in ARCA, getting back behind the wheel of the team’s No. 32 ARCA machine at Phoenix Raceway in March after those two races in that entry last year.
Win-Tron’s truck number for 2020 has not yet been specified. The team last competed in the Truck Series in 2015.
