Travis Pastrana will be returning to NASCAR racing for at least one night.

Pastrana posted on his official Instagram account that he’ll take part in the Rhino Linings 300 on Friday, Oct. 3, at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (10 pm ET on Fox Sports 1).

Here’s his post:

“Couldn’t be more excited right now. Huge thanks to @Gun_Broker,@Never2hungover, my friend Lance Fenton, #LAZYfRANCH and @TeamNTS for giving me an opportunity to race the @nascar Camping World Truck series next weekend in Vegas! boogity, boogity, boogity, it’s time to go racing boys.”

It will be Pastrana’s first NASCAR race since finishing 14th in the 2013 Xfinity Series points standings, his only full season in stock cars.

It will also be his second career Truck Series start, having finished 15th in the 2012 race at Las Vegas.
