60-year-old racer Bill Lester will return to NASCAR on March 20 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. He will run the number 17 truck at the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event.
This will be his first Truck series start since 2007. He’ll be behind the wheel of the No. 17 David Gilliland Racing Ford F-150 at the Atlanta race.
“I’m excited to get back behind the wheel in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and I want to thank David Gilliland Racing for their help in making this happen,” Bill Lester said.
“It’s been more than a few years since my last race in the series, but to have strong partners like the Greater Atlanta Ford Dealers, Camping World, and Tommy’s Express Car Wash joining me for my return means a lot and I am honored to have them on-board.
“I look forward to competing at my home track, Atlanta Motor Speedway, and hope to make all those who are supporting me proud,” he concluded.
