Trevor Bayne, who will drive the No. 40 Plan B Sales/Proceller8 Chevrolet, will make his first NASCAR start since 2018.

“After almost two years of being out of the seat, I’m so excited and grateful for another chance to go racing,” Bayne said in a press release.  “The call from Niece Motorsports to get back behind the wheel at Darlington was unexpected and came together really fast. They have a great group and a lot of potential with their program.  I’m looking forward to working with everyone there and going back racing this weekend!”

The race will be Bayne’s first career Truck Series start. He has 187 Cup starts and 152 Xfinity Series starts.
