Colby Howard Joins McAnally-Hilgemann for 2022

McAnally-Hilgemann Racing has grand plans for the 2022 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season. The team intends to expand from one entry to two and tabbed Colby Howard to pilot one of its entries next year, it announced Sept. 9.

Sponsorship, crew chief, and the truck number were not disclosed in the announcement.

“We’re pleased to have Colby join our team for 2022, as we look to expand our Camping World Truck Series program,” team co-owner Bill McAnally said in a team release. “Colby comes from a racing family and brings with him an extensive racing resume. Most recently, he had an impressive run in the truck series race at Darlington last week.”

“I’m really excited to be joining a team of this caliber,” Howard said. “I feel like it’s a big step in my career. I’m really looking forward to going there next year and working with Bill and all the guys – being competitive and going for wins and a championship.”
