“I think it will be awesome for the Truck Series to go back to Darlington,” said defending NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Champion, Ron Hornaday. “I know that when the trucks were there Bobby Hamilton and Ted Musgrave put on a heck of a show for the fans. Traditionally, Darlington has been one of those places that have close finishes which the Truck Series is known for. I’m excited to go there with my No. 33 Chevrolet and see if we can’t put our names in the Darlington record books.”
“We are really excited to have the trucks back at Darlington,” said track President, Chris Browning. “The trucks put on great races when they raced here from 2001-2004 and I know the racing will be just as good, if not better, this year.”
