William Sawalich is back at TRICON Garage for the 2024 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series season, TRICON announced Dec. 21.

Sawalich will again pilot the No. 1 part time, starting at Bristol Motor Speedway in the spring.

In all, he will run nine races for the team, all of which are events drivers under 18 years old can compete at — until Sawalich turns 18 late in the season, with Homestead-Miami Speedway then added to his schedule.

“I am excited to be back with the No. 1 team in 2024,” Sawalich said in a team release.. “We were super consistent this past season and I am looking forward to repeating that with my group of guys. I am confident it will be another successful year with TRICON.”
