Travis Pastrana, the founder of the Nitro Circus franchise, will make his return to the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series on Saturday at Kansas Speedway. It will mark his first Truck start since 2017.
Pastrana is scheduled to drive the No. 40 Niece Motorsports truck Saturday. Ross Chastain will drive the truck in Friday night’s race at Kansas. Chastain will compete in Saturday’s Xfinity race at Kansas and skip the Truck race earlier that day.
The action sports star ran the full Xfinity season in 2013 for Roush Fenway Racing. Pasrana ran 42 races in that series and three Truck races in his career.
Pastrana announced his return on Instagram and the team confirmed the change.
