The Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series will revert back to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2021, Marcus Lemonis, CEO of Camping World, announced Tuesday.

“The transition back to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series demonstrates the continued power of NASCAR’s brand-loyal fan base and creates a broader touchpoint with fans who are RV and Outdoor enthusiasts,” Lemonis said in a statement. “We leveraged the series to support the successful launch of our new brand in 2019, and look forward to celebrating the 2020 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series Champion in November.

“The next generation of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is right around the corner and we’re committed to the series that has delivered for our customers, fans and the entire Camping World family of brands.”

The Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series playoffs are scheduled to begin Thursday at Bristol Motor Speedway.

In 2014, NASCAR announced that Camping World had signed a deal to be the entitlement sponsor of the Truck Series through the 2022 season. The company took over the Truck Series sponsorship in 2009 from Sears’ Craftsman tool brand.
