The veteran driver caught the attention of teams in Xfinity and Trucks by winning the ARCA Menards Series season opener at Daytona International Speedway in thrilling and emotional fashion.

Funding has been an issue for him, though, and he’s only made four more ARCA starts since. Still, he sits 12th in the driver standings for that series.

The Trucks return to LOIRP for the second year in a row, with the TSport 200 set for Friday, Aug. 11, at 9 p.m. ET. FOX Sports 1 and MRN will carry the coverage.

Greg is what racing should be all about. Will be interesting because both he and SVG Will be making their truck debuts. Hopefully Van Alst will be able to use his short track prowess to elevate that truck to the win. You can bet I will be there.
