Following a full-time run in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series in 2019, Gus Dean will return to the series at Daytona International Speedway.

Dean will drive the No. 56 at Daytona in a partnership between Hill Motorsports and Win-Tron Racing, he announced Tuesday, Feb. 4.

His truck ride adds to Dean’s packed Florida schedule; he’s also driving in the ARCA Menards Series race at the track for Win-Tron and will drive a super late model entry at New Smyrna Speedway in the days leading up to the Daytona Truck Series event.

“I’m extremely blessed to have another jam-packed couple of weeks in Florida,” Dean saidn in a release. “I’m excited to get back in an ARCA car with my guys at Win-Tron Racing, have some fun super late model racing and having the opportunity to come back and get back in a truck on Feb. 14.

Dean’s truck will mark Hill Motorsports’ first entry on a superspeedway in the Truck Series, as well as Win-Tron’s return to the series. Last month, it announced that Howie DiSavino III will drive for the team in a part-time schedule in 2020, beginning at Richmond Raceway. Hill’s full schedule has not yet been announced.

In 2019, Dean drove the No. 12 for Young’s Motorsports, finishing 15th in the standings with a best finish of 13th at Michigan International Speedway.
