Travis Pastrana will make his first Kansas Speedway start in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series on Saturday. Pastrana’s most recent Truck Series start came with Niece Motorsports at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in 2017.
"I always enjoy coming to race in NASCAR, especially the Truck Series," said Pastrana. "It’s been fun to watch how this team has grown and progressed over the last couple of years, and I’m excited to get the chance to get back behind the wheel. A huge thank you to Al Niece, Cody [Efaw] and everyone at Niece Motorsports for this amazing opportunity and all of their hard work."
The No. 40 will carry the Plan B Sales colors at Kansas Speedway.
Original post: On Thursday, Travis Pastrana, 36, revealed in an Instagram video that he is set to run the second leg of the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series double header on Saturday at Kansas Speedway.
Pastrana says that the opportunity came by way of a random cold call from his former car chief Cody Efaw, who is the team manager for Niece Motorsports.
