UPDATE: You may know the name Tyler Carpenter because of his impressive dirt racing background, or you may know who he is because of his tendency to give a polarizing interview, from time to time.

However, after Saturday’s Dirt Late Model feature event in the Gateway Dirt Nationals, Carpenter will be known for – pending approval — earning an opportunity in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, through Niece Motorsports’ “Win & You’re In” program.

Original post: Gateway Dirt is back on December 2-4 and the event has big news ahead of this weekend’s spectacle inside of the Dome at America’s Center.  The Gateway Dirt Nationals has teamed up with NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Team, Niece Motorsports, to present a once in a lifetime opportunity.

The winner of Saturday night’s Super Late Model feature will not only win the race’s $30,000 prize, but on top of that, one lucky driver will also be awarded the driver’s seat of a Niece Motorsports Chevrolet at Knoxville on June 18th, 2022, when the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series makes its stop in Knoxville, Iowa.

The “WIN & YOU’RE IN” program offers a unique opportunity for some of the country’s best grassroots racers.  Niece Motorsports takes great pride in being a team of “racers” and the “WIN & YOU’RE IN” program is a clear example of giving back to grassroots racing.

“So many of us at this organization cut our teeth in racing at dirt tracks,” said Niece Motorsports General Manager Cody Efaw.  “I truly believe that these drivers are some of the most talented in the country, so we’re excited to give someone another platform to showcase their abilities.”

Gateway Dirt Nationals promoter Cody Sommer is well known for unique promotions and feels this is something that continues to set this event apart from the industry.

“When we sat down and put this together it really got me excited to think about it,” said Sommer.  “Imagine if Tyler Carpenter would have won this in 2019; this opportunity for that grassroots-level racer is truly once in a lifetime and it just feels great to be a part of something like this for this year’s event.”

The event takes place Thursday, Dec. 2 through Saturday, Dec. 4 at the Dome at America’s Center in Downtown St. Louis, MO.  Tickets are available at and those not attending can stream it LIVE at
