Kyle Benjamin will compete in seven Gander Outdoors Truck Series races this season with Niece Motorsports, the team announced Monday.

Benjamin will drive the No. 45 Chevrolet beginning with the June 7 race at Texas Motor Speedway. He’ll follow that up with starts at Iowa Speedway (June 15), World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway (June 22), Pocono Raceway (July 27), Michigan International Speedway (Aug. 10), Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (Aug. 25) and in the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway (Nov. 15).

Benjamin, 21, has two Truck Series starts. Both came last year at Martinsville Speedway with DGR-Crosley. The fall playoff race was his most recent NASCAR start.

“I’m excited to get back to the Truck Series, especially with Niece Motorsports,” Benjamin said in a press release. “This team has had an incredibly strong start to the 2019 season, so I feel fortunate to continue to build on that momentum and hopefully put together some solid finishes.”

Ross Chastain has driven the No. 45 in the first five races of the season and has top 10s in each race.
