NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series rookie of the year candidate Marc Mitchell will be driving a Toyota Tundra for the remainder of the year.
Billy Ballew Motorsports, which has already switched to Toyotas for Kyle Busch, has now officially left the Chevrolet stable.
“This is going to be great for (our) team,” Mitchell said. “Chevy has been really good to us, and I want to thank them for all of their support. We’ve had three strong finishes in our (Chevrolet) Silverado this season, but we need both teams at Billy Ballew to have the same manufacturer.”
Busch has two truck wins this season.
“We’ve had a lot of success with our No. 51 team this year,” Ballew said. “Kyle won at Atlanta and California in a Toyota this year. Switching the Ergon team to Toyota will allow both of our teams to share setup information and streamline what they’ve learned. I think it will benefit both teams at Billy Ballew Motorsports.”
