The NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series is returning to Darlington Raceway for the first time since 2011, and the 2000 series champion Greg Biffle will return for a one-off race with GMS Racing in the No. 24, GMS announced Aug. 27.
Biffle will compete in the South Carolina Education Lottery 200, the penultimate race of the Truck regular season. It will be his first NASCAR race since he won the 2019 SpeedyCash.com 400 at Texas Motor Speedway driving the No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota.
“I’m excited to get back behind the wheel of a Gander Truck,” Biffle said in a team release. “GMS Racing produces competitive trucks week in and week out. So needless to say when I got the chance to drive one of their Chevrolets, at one of my favorite tracks, I couldn’t turn it down. I’m thankful for this opportunity and I can’t wait to get to Darlington with this GMS Racing team.”
Biffle has won at Darlington twice in the NASCAR Cup Series, in 2005 and 2006, and once in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in March 2004.

He has never competed there in the Truck Series before.
In addition to his Truck championship, Biffle won the 2002 Xfinity championship.
Overall, Biffle has 17 wins, 43 top fives and 55 top-10 finishes in 82 career Truck starts.
The No. 24 is in 16th in the owners’ standings. The team has competed in every race thus far this season except the season opener at Daytona International Speedway and the second event at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Chase Elliott drove the No. 24 Chevrolet to victory in the race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
The Srace will take place on Sunday, Sept. 6 at 2 p.m. ET with TV coverage provided by Fox Sports 1.
