The 19-year-old drive will drive at Daytona road course and Circuit of the Americas.
Several days after the Daytona oval race, the grid for the road course is being formed. It has been announced on Monday that the young driver Parker Chase will make his Truck Series debut in the no.51 Kyle Busch Motorsports car this Friday. He will also drive at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX.
Parker Chase comments on the announcement: “I’m really looking forward to making my NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Debut at the Daytona Road Course this week. KBM is a race winning organization and I am hoping to put my experience at Daytona to good use in their equipment. I have been able to spend some time working with the guys in the shop in preparation for these events and we are ready to get started. Vertical Bridge and Tige Boats have come on board to support the effort and I am ready to represent them at Daytona and Circuit of the Americas.”
The no.51 truck crew chief Mardy Lindley adds: “Not being able to get any actual practice time prior to making his first Camping World Truck Series start isn’t an ideal situation for Parker, but he put the effort in to come to North Carolina a few weeks ago. We were able to get him some time on the Toyota Racing Simulator, and he was also able to do some live pit stop practice. He’s got some experience on the Daytona Road Course the last few years, the ARCA Menards race last year where he ran inside the top five for a lot of the race before finishing 10th. We’re confident that he can have a solid run and be right in the mix for us on Friday, and then we will build on that at COTA when there will be practice and qualifying before that race.”
Last year Chase drove in the ARCA Menards Series and IMSA. In ARCA he finished 10th in his only race at Daytona road course. In IMSA, he took part in the Rolex 24 at Daytona and his team finished in the GTD category.
