Alan is Niece’s second announced driver for 2023, following Carson Hocevar, who will also return to his truck he drove in 2022, the No. 42.

“We are excited to have Lawless return to Niece Motorsports this season,” team GM Cody Efaw added.  “Lawless gained a lot of experience and got a lot of seat time last season that we really think is going to pay off this year.  We are excited to see his growth this season.  He’s a hard worker and is always asking questions and learning from the people around him.  He definitely has the right attitude to be successful in this sport.”

Alan finished 22nd in points in 2022 with a best finish of 11th at Circuit of the Americas.

Niece fielded three full-time trucks in 2022, plus a nearly full-time fourth truck and a part-time fifth.
