Chastain on Racing at Daytona: “I’m excited to get this season started,” said Chastain. “This is going to be a great year, and I’m looking forward to Friday’s race with this Niece Motorsports group. I know that they’ve been working really hard this off season to get everything ready for 2019, so I know Phil and the team will have a strong truck on Friday.”
Chastain at Daytona: Friday’s season-opening race at Daytona International Speedway will mark Chastain’s fifth NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series start at the track. In his four previous starts, Chastain’s best finish of 14th came in 2013.
Additionally, Chastain has one Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series start at Daytona, and nine NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) starts at the 2.5-mile track. In those nine NXS starts, Chastain has earned five top-10 finishes and seven top-20 finishes.
It will be a busy weekend in Daytona for Chastain who looks to race in all three of NASCAR’s major touring series this weekend.
On the Truck: The No. 45 Chevrolet will carry the TrüNorth™ colors at Daytona International Speedway. TrüNorth™ is the leading provider of commercial asset related warranty programs and services for dealers, fleets, owner-operators, and commercial finance companies.
