Thorsport Racing Parts Ways with Toyota Ahead of 2018 Truck Series Season

By David Morgan, NASCAR Editor

With less than a month until the 2018 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season begins at Daytona, ThorSport Racing announced on Tuesday that they will be parting ways with manufacturer Toyota.

Thorsport has had a successful run with Toyota since the 2012 season, when they made the switch over from Chevrolet. In their six years together, Thorsport captured two championships in 2013 and 2014, 19 wins, 117 top-five finishes, 227 top-10 finishes, 10 poles, and 2900 laps led in Toyota-powered trucks.

Last season, Matt Crafton and Ben Rhodes drove their Tundras to a fourth and fifth place finish in points, respectively.

No details about a new manufacturer were made available at the time of this announcement, but the team noted in their release that a complete driver and sponsor lineup would be unveiled in the coming weeks.
