Ross Chastain Adds 4 Truck Races With Niece

Ross Chastain will compete in four additional NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races with Niece Motorsports, the team announced May 3.

In addition to his start this Friday night at Darlington Raceway on May 6, Chastain will compete in three other races in the team’s No. 41 entry: at Texas Motor Speedway on May 20, Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 27 and at Sonoma Raceway on June 11.

With the announcement of the full-time NASCAR Cup Series driver’s schedule comes the announcement of a new partnership in Worldwide Express, who is not only partnered with Chastain’s Cup team Trackhouse Racing Team but also is the primary partner of Niece Truck rookie Dean Thompson.

“I’m very excited to be a part of Worldwide Express’ growing commitment to NASCAR both in the Cup Series and Truck Series,” Chastain said in a team release. “It’s a great opportunity for both sides and thanks to Trackhouse Racing for allowing me the opportunity to compete in the Truck Series with Niece and Worldwide Express.”

In the Truck Series, Chastain has made 96 total starts and has amassed three wins, all with Niece. He made one start earlier this year with Niece at Atlanta Motor Speedway, finishing 23rd after suffering a flat tire.

Chastain has also earned two Cup wins in 2022 and currently sits sixth in the overall regular season standings.
