Garrett Smithley to make debut for Niece Motorsports


Niece Motorsports announced Wednesday that Garrett Smithley will make his debut for the team next Tuesday, May 26, at Charlotte Motor Speedway when the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series resumes racing.

Smithley will drive the No. 40 Trophy Tractor Chevrolet Silverado in his ninth overall career start in a Truck, with the most recent being a 15th-place finish in March 2019 at Texas.

“I’m excited to join Niece Motorsports and am looking forward to getting back behind the wheel of one of these trucks,” the 28-year-old Smithley said in a media release. “This is always a really fun and competitive series to race in, and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”

Smithley has made four Cup starts this season for Rick Ware Racing, most recently on Sunday at Darlington Raceway, where he finished 37th.
