After one year away, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returns to dirt this weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway’s dirt track.

JR Heffner returns to the series as Jordan Anderson Racing’s No. 3 driver.
Bubba Wallace will drive Spencer Davis Motorsports’ No. 11 in a partnership with Hattori Racing Enterprises.
David Gilliland Racing’s No. 17 will be driven by Kevin Harvick.
Myatt Snider is entered in Reaume Brothers Racing’s No. 33, while the team’s No. 34 is currently listed without a driver. Jake Griffin was announced as an RBR driver at the Bristol and Knoxville Raceway dirt races earlier this year.
Ryan Newman will drive a No. 39 owned by Brad Means in the team’s first start.
