Robby Lyons will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut in Friday’s Lucas Oil 150 at Phoenix Raceway.

Lyons, 28, of Seminole, Florida, will drive the No. 49 Chevrolet Silverado for Premium Motorsports, with sponsorship from Sunwest Construction and Barstool 49ers.

His crew chief will be Brian Keselowski.

“I think the goal for any driver making their debut, especially on a national stage like the Camping World Truck Series, is to make a statement and show that you belong there,” Lyons said in a media release. “I’ve not been behind the wheel as long as a lot of these guys have, but I feel like my biggest asset is that I’m easily instructed, and I listen well.”

Lyons has previously raced in the ARCA Series, NASCAR Limited Late Model Racing, the CARS Super Late Model Series and Legends National Racing.

“I’m hoping when all is said and done, after the checkered flag (at Phoenix), we all feel as if we’ve accomplished our goal and can look onward toward Homestead-Miami,” Lyons said.
